It’s no secret that the Duchess’s mother is known to have a charitable side. Meghan had often opened up about Doria’s influence on the Tig, her now-inactive lifestyle blog, in a post titled ‘How to be both’.
"Both my parents came from little, so they made a choice to give a lot," she wrote, "buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving, delivering meals to patients in hospice care, donating any spare change in their pocket to those asking for it, and performing quiet acts of grace—be it a hug, a smile, or a pat on the back to show ones in need that they would be alright."
Meghan’s sentiments were confirmed in 2018, when her mother accompanied her and Prince Harry for the launch of Meghan’s cookbook. This was Meghan’s first solo charity initiative since joining the royal family and benefited Hubb Community Kitchen, a group of women who have come together to prepare fresh food for their local community.
Doria spoke about "The power of women," explaining, "We make things happen. We're curious, we say yes, we show up. I'm inspired."
