Meghan markle has openly declared her love for the holidays, and it’s no surprise to fans that the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry, celebrated their second Thanksgiving at their new home in grand style.
Previously, the former actress made her love of cooking common knowledge on her lifestyle blog called “The Tig”. One example was a Turkey Day favorite which fans believed was now a clue for her to join the British Royal Family.
During a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, Markle revealed the plans she and her husband had made for Thanksgiving this year. She shared her love for cooking on the show and her anticipation of moving in with her husband and children to their California home.
Markel started “The Tig” long before his life as a royal family. About a year before meeting Prince Harry, she posted her favorite healthy Thanksgiving recipe to the blog and Instagram. In her own words, the recipe would make you feel like “the queen”.
Fans Can Feel Like A ‘Queen’ With Markle’s Recipe
In 2014, Meghan’s Thanksgiving post surprised fans by including a fancy recipe on the menu instead of a regular chicken recipe. It was one for an oven-roasted chicken breast, with a leek mushroom sauce. She expressed her love for the recipe and bragged about it to her fans.
âI love a brined, stuffed and roasted turkey as much as anyone, but if you’re cooking for two, maybe a smaller bird is more to your liking,â she said, âand associated with a nice accompaniment and a delicious dessert, you will be the king or queen of happy bellies and full hearts, âshe assured.
Praising the “beautiful roast chicken”, Meghan said it was “good sunken cuisine”. Additionally, she explained to her fans that her recipes are âClean Eats,â which means they won’t lead to a carbohydrate coma. The recipe also included chocolate coated almond butter bites and a special salad.
Markle closed her blog a while ago, but fans interested in cooking enthusiasts’ recipes can still access and view them on Tig Archives, an account on Tumblr that managed to keep some posts before the blog closed. Her Thanksgiving 2014 recipes are also included in the articles.
Markle and Harry celebrated Thanksgiving in California
Earlier this year, the couple jointly decided to officially step down as senior royals. They announced it in January and officially made their decision in March. This decision shocked Britain and the world.
As a result of the âMegxit,â the two bought a luxury home in Montecito, California, and moved there with their son Archie. Markle mentioned in Ellen’s interview that Thanksgiving this year would be the second for her and Harry at their California home and that she was confident it would go well.
Fans could only hope it turned out better than the family’s Halloween party, as she also revealed on the show that Archie and Lilibet, two, their five-month-old daughter, gave them some hard time. âThe kids just weren’t in it,â she said of Halloween.
Markle is a huge Thanksgiving fan
Before her wedding, Markle showed how much she loved celebrating Thanksgiving on her lifestyle blog. While “The Tig” was still running, she created content on fashion, beauty, travel and other fields.
She also shared photos of her cooking skills and recipes on how to make her best meals. Even when she was dating Harry in 2016, Markle once posted a photo of what fans thought was a perfectly cooked turkey.
In the photo caption she wrote: “Oh, this time I roasted a pretty perfect Thanksgiving turkey!” She continued, âThe question is, can I do it again? The pressure is there! “
The couple may share a mutual love for Thanksgiving birds, as Harry believed the perfect time to get down on his knees and propose was around a chicken dinner, as revealed by Markle.
The couple got engaged over a chicken dinner
A second reason why the 40 year old duchess has a resemblance to roast chicken could be because of the engagement of Harry and Markle who they said were around a roast chicken dinner.
In an interview the couple had together in 2017, they announced their engagement to the public. During this interview, Markle revealed that Harry’s proposal was about their attempt to roast a chicken together on a “comfortable night”.
She still liked the idea. She said: âWe were trying to roast a chicken and it was just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He dropped to one knee.
Fans were excited about the couple’s California Thanksgiving and hoped it would go as well as Markle and Harry had expected.
