Little wonder then, it was quickly gobbled up by guests who gave it “five stars.”
"We were so surprised but it was incredibly nice of her," Elaine Woodley, from the Mountain View Farm, one of the recipients of Meghan’s banana bread told the Daily Mail during the tour. "She made it last night when she knew she was coming to a family home."
