Meghan Markle takes mom along to UK cooking fundraiser

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project Meghan Markle To Release Cookbook In Support Of Fire Victims

The book features a powerful foreword by Meghan, in which she explains the importance of Together.

Meghan can be heard saying "sorry" to Harry, the pair having a laugh at the situation.

Together is comprised of more than 50 recipes from a group that became known as the Hubb Community Kitchen, named for the Arabic word for "love".

Earlier this week, the Royal Foundation - which runs the charities of Meghan, Prince Harry, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge - released a short film which showed Meghan playing an active role in the Hubb Community Kitchen, which is run by a group of women who lost their homes after the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017.

Duchess Meghan joined some women from the Hubb Community Kitchen to cook a meal of coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and chapatis for the invited guests.

"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.

Her appearance alongside her famous daughter was unusual as non-royal family members do not attend official royal engagements. "It is a homage to the power of cooking as a community, and the recipes that allow us to connect, share, and look forward".

In a speech to her honoured guests, the duchess said the project had been a "tremendous labour of love ..."

The Duchess, who said she "immediately felt connected" to the kitchen at the Al Manaar cultural centre, first visited in January and has made other secret trips to the centre to meet volunteers and learn more about their work.

With proceeds from the cookbook, the kitchen aims to have its doors open up to seven days per week.

Meghan says she felt "embraced" by the women from the community kitchen after just moving to London.

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.

She phoned their mother, who was with them on the 19th floor to warn them about the fire - giving them enough time to get out of the building.
