Meghan Markle brings mom Doria Ragland to her Grenfell cookbook launch

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project

I have just recently moved to London and I felt so immediately embraced by the women in the kitchen, by your kindness and to be in this city and be in this room and see how multi-cultural it was.

The Duchess of Sussex said she was inspired by the women she met. (AAP) Meghan impressed the group by speaking without note for five minutes.

The idea for the charity cookbook came from the Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, during a visit to the kitchen.

The 37-year-old American former actress wrote the foreword to the book which represents her first solo venture since becoming a member of Britain's royal family after marrying Queen Elizabeth's grandson Harry in May.

It turns out that the charity recipe book the Duchess of Sussex has thrown her support behind has rocketed to the top of Amazon's bestseller list on pre-orders alone.

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.

Calls grow to delay Kavanaugh vote amid sex assault allegations
As of early Monday afternoon, the Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination Thursday. Ford said she kept silent about the alleged incident until she was in couples' therapy with her husband in 2012.

The Duchess brought her mother, Doria Ragland, along to the function in grounds of Kensington Palace to launch a cookbook.

Meghan arrived at the event, wearing a $1,195 (approximately) £697 petrol blue coat by Canadian brand Smythe, with a black rollneck by Tuxe and a skirt by Misha Nonoo.

Meghan's shoes were by Sarah Flint - a brand she has worn more than 25 times! She was accompanied by her husband Prince Harry and her mother Doria Ragland. The cookbook includes over 50 recipes from the Hubb chefs. Everyone has embraced this so fully because it has been a passion project for us all'.

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

It appeared he liked the samosas so much he wanted to take a few home with him to Nottingham Cottage, just a stone throw's away from where the event was taking place today.

"I said in the foreword that this is more than a cookbook, and what I mean by that is the power of food is more than just the meal itself, it is the story behind it. I am so privileged to know you", she added.
