Meghan Markle baked banana bread for farmers on royal tour of Australia


Duchess Meghan, who is reportedly a few months along into her pregnancy, embarked on her first royal tour alongside Prince Harry. The duo have already visited Sydney, where they toured the Taronga Zoo and Sydney Opera House, and Dubbo in rural Australia.

In Dubbo, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also met with the Woodley family, a fifth-generation farming family, to learn about the years-long drought and how it affects their work. Meghan didn't arrive empty handed, however, and instead gifted them with her homemade banana bread, which she concocted late at night at the Admiralty House.

Meghan passed along her banana bread, made with "fresh ginger" and chocolate chips, with tea from London-famous Fortnum & Mason. "It was such a nice and thoughtful thing for her to do," said Benita Woodley to The Daily Mail. "We are really touched."

"She said she was worried about the bananas, that she'd put too many bananas in it," continued Woodley. "But the Duke said there's never too many bananas."

The duchess, who was behind the now-defunct lifestyle blog "The Tig," has expressed her love for cooking and baking in the past. A self-proclaimed foodie, the 37-year-old is regularly testing out new recipes in the couple's Kensington Palace home. She's even won over Prince George and Princess Charlotte with her baking skills.

Most recently, Meghan released a cookbook with survivors from the Grenfell Tower Fire. Titled "Together: Our Community Cookbook," it features 50 recipes from the survivors and a forward written by the duchess herself.

"Together is more than a cookbook," she wrote. "This is a tale of friendship, and a story of togetherness. It is a homage to the power of cooking as a community, and the recipes that allow us to connect, share and look forward."
