Yeah, you could say Meghan Markle's first year as an official member of the British Royal Family has been a big one.
The Duchess of Sussex embarked on royal life almost 12 months ago, when she wed Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on May 19 2018.
Since then, Meghan, 37, has not only become a mother for the first time, she's thrown herself into her role as the Duchess of Sussex.
From the moment she married Harry, the former actress has kept herself busy with royal engagements that have taken her all over the UK and even to the opposite end of the world.
However, royal commentator Victoria Arbiter believes there's one passion project of the Duchess' that's stood out from the rest, symbolising the kind of royal she hopes to be.
"It was her involvement in the Hubb Community Kitchen cookbook that, I think, really made everyone stand up and go This lady is interesting, and this lady is interested in supporting a community but without all the glory'," she explains to 9Honey.
In her first solo charitable project, Meghan made frequent secret visits to the women of the kitchen, who began cooking together in the wake of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire.
Throughout 2018, Meghan formed a close relationship with the group and helped them create Together: Our Community Cookbook, which launched in November.
Arbiter says Meghan's low-key approach to supporting and championing the Hubb kitchen stood at odds with the celebrity world she'd hailed from.
"Often times well see celebrities come and support a cause, but they also want their name attached. Thats the world that Meghan knew before," she says.

"A lot of her involvement in that [cookbook], people didnt know about it for monthsnot until the book was about to come out, by which stage she had met with these ladies numerous times.
"Shed been to visit the kitchens, shed written the forward, shed had a huge involvement in the layout of the book, and so I think that really spoke volumes in terms of Meghans approach."
Arbiter believes the Hubb Community Kitchen was a perfect starting point for Meghan's philanthropic royal work.
"She loves food, she loves cooking, that was all on her website The Tig, so what a great place to really get stuck in and get started," she says.
"Shes left all the celebrity behind and she just wants to further promote the things that shes interested in."

The announcement of Meghan's first royal patronages at the start of this year gave us an even better idea of the other causes and areas she's interested in.
"People were keen to see is she going to follow through with what her interests were ... of course, that being the welfare of womens issues, education, animals," Arbiter says.
Here's to another year of hard work.
