Meghan Markle Added A Special Ingredient To Her Homemade Banana Bread

The Duchess Of Sussex is fast defining herself as a very modern princess.

Not only was Meghan on hand to hold an umbrella for her husband Prince Harry while he delivered a speech in the pouring rain in Dubbo, the pregnant Duchess also showed herself to be quite handy in the kitchen.

During a farm visit to meet the Woodleys, a family who have been affected by the devastating drought, Meghan brought along a loaf of homemade banana bread she had baked the night before while staying in Admiralty House.

But this wasn't just any old banana bread -- with guests praising the Duchess for adding a spicy twist to the morning tea favourite.

In perhaps a nod to her flame-haired hubby, the Duchess of Sussex admitted to adding a hint of ginger spice to the bread along with some chocolate chips.

Unlike those other baking experiments most of us mere mortals cringe recalling -- this one proved a resounding success with everyone who was lucky enough to have a taste.

That wasn't all Meghan brought along to the farm visit though.

In an offering clearly showing she's fully embraced her adopted hometown of London, Meghan brought along a British favourite -- a tin of Fortnum and Mason 'Royal Blend' tea.

How adorable, right?

Her kind offering was quickly picked up by fans, with many taking to Twitter to applaud Meghan for her touching gesture.

The pair visited Dubbo as part of their 16-day royal tour Down Under.
