Meghan Markle joined by mum Doria for Grenfell cookbook launch

Meghan Markle marked a major royal milestone on Thursday, delivering her first royal speech at an event celebrating the cookbook project Together, which features a foreward by the Duchess of Sussex.

However, there are reports Meghan has made a secret trip to Los Angeles to see her mother since then and is considering moving to the United Kingdom to be close to her only daughter.

Following the catastrophic Grenfell Tower fire past year, a group of women gathered in a communal kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London, where they could prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbours.

Donning a black turtleneck and skirt layered under a vibrant blue wool coat by Smythe, the duchess looked just as polished as usual as she reunited with the community of women she first met months ago.

During the event, which Prince Harry also attended, Meghan spoke of how important the multi-cultural Grenfell kitchen was in making her feel welcome in London, saying she was "proud to live in a city with so much diversity".

"Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love".


The Duchess of Sussex's mother Doria Ragland made a surprise appearance today at the launch of her daughter, Meghan Markle's new cookbook at Kensington Palace, telling guests: "Hi, I'm Meg's mom". "Through this charitable endeavour, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive".

The women of the kitchen made their own personal recipes featured in the cookbook, many of which have been handed down through generations.

There was a large range on the menu, including coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and a range of chapatis and sharing dips.

Meghan joined the women to help make the delicious food, before her mother and husband Harry arrived to enjoy the reception.

Together was created by a community of women, the Hubb Community Kitchen, who cook together twice a week at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre.
