Duchess Meghan Markle Brings Her Mom Doria Ragland to Cookbook Launch

Duchess Meghan Markle Brings Her Mom Doria Ragland to Cookbook Launch

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.

She added: "On a personal level, I feel so proud to live in a city that can have so much diversity".

Meghan helped put the group in touch with a publisher and her Royal Foundation provided assistance with legal and administrative issues.

It was Meghan and Doria's first appearance together since the royal wedding.

During her speech today, the Duchess of Sussex described the charity cookbook as a "labour of love" that she has been working on for the past nine months.

Ms Ragland embraced each of the women with a warm hug, telling them: 'It's awesome. "I had just recently moved to London, and I felt so immediately embraced by the women of the kitchen".

If ever there was proof needed of Prince Harry's love for his wife, this is it.

"I used to call you Meghan (and I still do) but dear Duchess of Sussex your first project "Together" [is] a cookbook bringing women of all cultures together", Williams wrote.

As part of her first solo project since becoming a duchess, she thought the book could help fund the kitchen opening more than just two days a week.

Meghan wrote the foreword to Together: Our Community Cookbook, which has already knocked JK Rowling off the number one spot on Amazon's bestseller list.

It was a day of celebration for the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen who rallied together to feed people affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The book will feature 50 recipes written by ladies from the community with a foreword written by the Duchess of Sussex herself.

The Hubb Community Kitchen - hubb means love in Arabic - has arisen out of the devastating Grenfell tragedy in 2017.

"I'm so excited to see the projects you're going to continue to do in your own community, the community at large, and also how you're going to inspire people globally by sharing your stories and your recipes", she said at the event.

"Meghan draws a lot of strength from her mother".
