Since becoming a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle has drawn criticism for just about every move she makes. In the latest scandal, the new mom has drawn ire from the masses by taking a private jet to France with her husband Prince Harry after stressing the necessity of environmental protection.
The backlash has caused celebrities such as Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres to leap to the duchess' defense. And though Markle herself has remained mum on the matter in public, it seems as though she just let some cupcakes do the talking.
In a post on the Royal Sussex Instagram account, the duchess shared a snap of some treats from London's East Luminary Bakery, which also designed her recent birthday cake. The cupcakes were topped with messages such as "You Are Beautiful," and "You Are Strong."
Markle described the impact the bakery is making in the caption.
"What they’ve created at Luminary Bakery is exceptional - it’s a space for baking, healing and rebuilding," she wrote. "When I visited 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."
