Meghan Markle hosts Lunch in Palace to Launch "Together"

Along with Prince Harry, the duo stepped out on Thursday (Sept. 20) to celebrate Together: Our Community Cookbook, a attractive book that Meghan worked on with women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire - and for which she penned the foreword.

Meghan Markle was joined by her mother Thursday to launch a cookbook aimed at raising money for the victims of London's Grenfell Tower fire.

They tucked into home-made dishes including coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and a range of chapatis and sharing dips, as well as caramelised plum upside-down cake, and spiced mint tea.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex helps to prepare food at an event to mark the launch of a cookbook with recipes from a group of women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire at Kensington Palace in London, Britain September 20, 2018.

The duchess looked stylish in a top by Tuxe, skirt by Misha Nonoo and coat by Smythe.

"Working on this for the past nine months has been a tremendous labour of love, ' she said".

Meghan had plenty of support for her first solo project launch.

Los Angeles based Doria, 62, hugged each woman and said: "It's awesome".

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

The trio, who at one point stood with their arms around one another in a line, made their way around four food stations, with the Duchess getting stuck in to help cook while her mother and husband watched on proudly. Meghan continued, "That's a testament to what this means to people and I'm so proud of you".

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".

However, due to lack of funding, the women were only able to keep the facility open for two days a week.

The cookbook includes over 50 recipes from the Hubb chefs.

Other guests include members of the local community, representatives from Ebury Press, Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre and The Royal Foundation. She also expressed her heartfelt affection for the project.
