Mods, sorry for the double post as this is relevant to my previous one. The book release keeps getting pushed back.
Pushed back in the U.K. as it’ll be in stores on Thursday.

Meghan's fans are ALREADY whipping up dishes from the Duchess' Grenfell charity cookbook – and sharing snaps of the results on Instagram
Together: Our Community Cookbook, which was produced by cooks from the Hubb Community Kitchen based near the site of the tower in West London, and features a foreword written by Meghan, hit shops on Thursday.

The Hubb Kitchen ladies are probably asserting their rights under copyright legislation as several of their recipes have escaped on to the Internet and are being discussed by some home cooks. No doubt ingredients, measurements are being adjusted by others there, too. The assertion wouldn't be a shot at Meghan as this link shows this under the Royal Foundation logo, and she, along with the Cambridges and Harry are patrons of the Foundation.

The hypocricy with this book is growing by the minute.

Exactly how do you leak a recipe for an easy chocolate pie... The kind of recipe where even 5 years olds can whip up. And how is this Mefan's book, Megan's launch, Megan having accomplished so much more than Waity ...while she had someone write a 3 page foreword on her behalf... with a spelling mistake.

Just what the BRF need, more bad press. I cannot imagine just how nasty this is going to get for Meg now that someone she's been stepping on is now pushing back.

The book’s price dropped $5 to $11.99 on US Amazon.  No “best seller” drops their hardcover price.  Very strange.

I checked this out and it’s true.  Sloppy job.

Quote
There is a problem with the book since a section is missing and another section is duplicated. It seems correct up to page 65. It then jumps to page 82/83. A portion of the pages in the 60’s and all of the pages that should be the 70’s are missing and there is a duplicated section of 83-88. Some of the recipes referenced in index are not in the book. Are there corrected copies to replace what I received.

^^WOW! That's bad!

The bestseller tag on Amazon can be so skewed. I'd give way more weight to it if it popped up on the NYT list.

That is bad and sounds a complete mess. Oh well, no surprise. All lacquer and no substance.

Meghan heads back to the Hubb Community Kitchens, where she is greeted with a welcoming hug. Good news for the women who wrote the cookbook. It's raised £210,000 already 40,000 copies in the UK alone, with the target of £250,000 to be overtaken by Xmas. They must be very pleased as this will help their community.

Together has sold more than 40,000 copies in the UK and raised £210,000 so far in the seven weeks since it went on sale.
Kensington Palace said today that since the book was published in September, the 'inclusive ethos of Together has resonated all over the world, and inspired people not just to buy the book, but to cook, eat and gather in their own communities'.


IMO, basic pr move due to her getting bad press of late. That’s what vapid celebrities do to give the press something to talk about; something positive. In this case, it’ll backfire. Unfortunately, she’s too obvious in her game playing. It’s a crying shame that the royal family’s come to dumpster diving for a wife and ended up with a vapid user narc like Meghan who’s presence has downmarketed the royal family.
As predicted, the comments aren’t good as people see what she’s about.

They’re getting $5 a book?  Very very low ratio for a charity project.  It should be 0-3 or, top end 5% for operating costs.  This falls in the 60-70%.  Appalling.

^I agree that she does look nice here as the colour suits her.
I thought the projected target sales was 50,000 with money raised being £250,000. In that case, the project failed expectations. Thanks for the insight on fundraising Yooper. It seems that the book should’ve done better given the global press attention that was given to the book launch. Meghan’s problem is that she brings focus to herself and not the project.

You know, all the profits should be going to the charity, not just a sliver of the profits. Any bets that much of it is going into Meg's bank account?

‏One nice touch from the Duchess of Sussex at the end of what was a very relaxed official engagement earlier today: she thanked the media for turning up. "Bye guys. Thanks for coming," she said. We don't always get that from some members of the Royal Family.
