Meghan Markle Brings Her Mom Along For Her First Royal Hosting Event

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project

"I just recently moved to London and I felt so immediately embraced by this kitchen - your warmth and kindness, and also to be able to be in this city and to see in this one small room how multicultural it was".

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.

In the new book supported by Meghan, some of the recipes are family favourites and all have been created by the cooks who support not only residents affected by the Grenfell fire but others in the community.

The outing marks Ragland's first official royal engagement since the wedding.

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.

While Ragland has been given a prominent royal seal of approval, Meghan's father has spoken of his fears that she will not contact him again.

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.

After lending a hand in the cooking and preparation, Markle and her guests-among them members of the local community, the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Center and representatives from the publishers of the book, Ebury Press-dined together and tasted the homemade dishes featured in the cookbook, including coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and caramelized plum upside-down cake.

"That, I believe, is the ethos of Together".

FYI: Duchess Meghan is wearing a Misha Nonoo skirt, Smythe coat, and Sarah Flint shoes. The book was inspired by Meghan's visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington, which could only open a few days a week for lack of funds. "I'm serious", she told the women, adding that Markle "felt very much at home" while working in the kitchen.

"That's a testament to what this means to people and I am so proud of you".

Serena Williams, who has been friends with the former actress for years, praised Meghan's first solo project as a royal in a sweet Instagram post on Monday.
