The royal account said the Sussexes wanted to put a spotlight on the London-based Luminary bakery thanks to the work they do with vulnerable women.

The caption was written by Meghan, and said: “What they’ve created at Luminary Bakery is exceptional – it’s a space for baking, healing and rebuilding.

“When I visited the women earlier this year I was struck by how the baking, itself, is a means of therapy for these women – which in many ways makes complete sense – feeling they had no control over their lives based on their previous (and often harrowing) circumstances, they found comfort in the measured nature of baking.

“Mixing equal parts of one ingredient and another could yield the perfect dessert, but the act of doing so provided personal balance.

“So while the baked goods are absolutely delicious, it’s the story of how the program at Luminary reshapes lives through baking that is the actual icing on the cake.”

The Luminary Bakery is an all-female team who help women who are victims of sex trafficking, violence, who have been to prison or are finding it hard to get back into work.

Since they launched in 2014, they have helped 56 women get back on their feet.

When Meghan turned 38 on August 4, it was reported that she received a special carrot cake from the bakery decorated with citrus fruit and ‘Happy Birthday Meghan’ icing.

The bakery was one of the many good causes highlighted in Meghan’s Vogue issues, and she sent them a handwritten note and a leather-bound notepad.

The letter, written in Meghan’s beautiful calligraphy, thanked the London-based social enterprise for the valuable work they do.

The note read: “When I knew I would be secretly guest editing the September issue of British Vogue, including Luminary Bakery was a non-negotiable.

“The work you do, what you represent to the community, the spirit of the women there- you all embody what it means to be ‘forces for change’.

“Thank you for being a part of this special project.”

The Luminary Bakery shared their excitement at being included in the magazine.

They uploaded a photo of the front cover, with the caption: “What an honour! We are so excited to share that Luminary is being featured in the September 2019 issue of @BritishVogue, guest-edited by HRH The Duchess of Sussex @SussexRoyal!

“The Duchess personally requested Luminary to be featured and sent us a gorgeous handwritten note to thank us for being #ForcesForChange.

We shared how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle WON’T be joining Kate Middleton and Prince William this weekend at Balmoral.

It comes as Meghan and Prince Harry have come under fire for taking four private jets in 11 days while flying to Ibiza for Meghan’s birthday and then to Elton John’s £15million home in Nice.
