Meghan Markle's Mom Doria Attends Kensington Palace Event Celebrating Duchess's Cookbook Release

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project

Meghan Markle To Release Cookbook In Support Of Fire Victims

The charitable book - Meghan's first solo charitable project as a Royal - will use its profits to help the kitchen stay open seven days a week, helping even more members of the community affected by June 2017's Grenfell fire.

Meghan's shoes were by Sarah Flint - a brand she has worn more than 25 times! I can't handle this!

It appears Prince Harry enjoyed the food on offer at the launch of his wife Meghan's cookbook on Thursday - so much so, that he couldn't resist sneaking some extra out with him!

In the foreword, she also calls out a particular avocado dip recipe in the book that she loves.

After encouraging her followers to "grab this book" because "it has wonderful recipes from all women, from all backgrounds coming together and just doing something and cooking".

Meghan gave a three-minute speech without notes at the event, saying: "On a personal note I'm especially grateful because this is my first project so I appreciate your support for the vision that I had for this and seeing it come to fruition".

She said: "I felt so immediately embraced by the women in the kitchen, your warmth and your kindness, and also to be able to be in this city and to see in this one small room how multicultural it was".

She said: 'I'm so privileged to know you.

It's an exciting day for Meghan Markle.

Speaking about it, the Duchess, who donned an apron to muck in with fellow volunteers on her visits, said she "immediately felt connected" to the kitchen, which she described as a "place for women to laugh, cry, grieve and cook together".

The palace said the group of women behind the project had made a decision to gather and prepare fresh food for their families and neighbours, as a way of helping the community to connect, heal and look forward - and to "convene through food". "Melding cultural identities under a shared roof ... creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy - in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy - something we can all relate to". All proceeds from the book will benefit the kitchen.
