Meghan wows at royal outing alongside mum Doria

Meghan wows at royal outing alongside mum Doria

Markle, who has been visiting the Hubb Community Kitchen in West London since January ("Hubb" means "love" in Arabic), wrote the foreword for the book, as the result of her time spent cooking with and getting to know the women.

During her frequent secret visits, Meghan watched as the women came together to cook food to feed families displaced by the Grenfell Tower fire that killed more than 70 people.

Meghan's husband and mother looked on proudly as she gave a speech to launch the book, telling them the multi-cultural kitchen has been integral in helping her feel welcome in London after moving from Canada where she lived while filming the popular TV series Suits. All proceeds raised through the purchase of the Together cookbook will help ensure the kitchen stays open seven days a week - thus ensuring full tummies and more laughter.

Her mother Doria Ragland was also on hand to support her daughter's first royal solo project.

"It's pretty outstanding", she says.

Thomas Markle pulled out of the May's spectacular wedding ceremony at the queen's Windsor Castle home after undergoing heart surgery and amid controversy that he had staged photos with a paparazzi photographer.


Both Meghan and the women showcased the recipes for the guests, including a delicious dessert of caramelized plum upside-down cake, and spiced mint tea.

"To the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this adventure with you". When we get to know the story of the recipe, you get to know the person behind it, ' she said. "And I just got my copy straight from Kensington Palace", she explained while flipping through the book's pages.

Ms Ragland introduced herself to guests as "Meg's mom" when she arrived at the marquee with the duke and duchess, and said she was "head over heels" with pride.

One of the contributors to the book, Munira Mahmud, 34, told how Meghan donned an apron and mucked in with the cooking, including washing rice.

"It is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry, and cook together."
