Meghan is a self-proclaimed foodie, so we have no doubt she is keeping their cottage’s fridge fully stocked. She has been spotted walking around Prince Harry’s neighborhood in Kensington, carrying Whole Foods shopping bags (the health food store is a short stroll from the couple’s cottage).

Her cooking is a hit with her prince. He got down on one knee to propose while she was making them a roast chicken, after all! (Get the recipe from Ina Garten here.)

And instead of Harry running over to his brother and sister-in-law’s house for meals now, they can all sit down to home-cooked meals together. Harry and Meghan will be living in Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, just a few doors down from Will and Kate!
