Meghan Markle's Favorite Bread Is Literally Called The Kensington

Seeing as more episodes of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix documentary have premiered, it seems like everyone has Meghan Markle fever once again (per CNN). However, before she was known and sought after worldwide as the Duchess of Sussex, Markle was an actress best known for her role as Rachel Zane on the USA legal drama "Suits." During the seven years when Markle was hard at work on the series, she lived in Toronto. According to The Hollywood Reporter, in the low-key Canadian city, the budding royal couple were able to hide in plain sight and were largely left alone by paparazzi until their engagement announcement.

Markle had made Toronto her home for years before she met Harry in London in 2016, and continued to do so as they began their famous relationship. During all that time, she got to know the city pretty well, and shared her favorite spots on her now-defunct social media sites. When she officially became associated with the royal family, Markle deactivated her Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and her blog The Tig (per Now to Love). Fortunately, Markle had enough fans before she was the Duchess of Anything to piece together her favorite Toronto hotspots from the remnants of her forgotten socials, including the bakery that made a beloved — and fitting — type of bread.

Meghan Markle's favorite Toronto snack

During the seven years she filmed the show "Suits" in Toronto, Meghan Markle became incredibly fond of Kensington Market's Black Bird Baking Co (via Style Democracy). Markle especially loved two of the bakery's breads — its signature Kensington sourdough loaf, made with red-fife flour, is widely reported to have been her go-to bread while she lived in the city. The bread shares a name with the home of Markle's future brother and sister-in-law, Kensington Palace (per Historic Royal Places). However, Insider notes that some claim the future Duchess of Sussex's bread of choice was actually Black Bird Baking Co's Baldwin, another golden, crusty sourdough.

It's clear that the Duchess is a big fan of sourdough bread, as she often shared her love of the Kensington on her socials. Red fife flour, which is included in the Kensington loaf, is a heritage grain grown in Canada that boasts to be the country's oldest refined grain (per The Canadian Encyclopedia). While we have no way of knowing how Markle enjoyed her bread (or whether she shared it with Harry), we bet these sourdoughs would've made a great BLT.
