Harry looked extremely proud as he and Meghan's mother Doria listened to her addressing the women from the Hubb Community Kitchen at the launch event.

As Meghan wrote in the foreword of the book, "I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together..."

Together: Our Community Cookbook is set to be released on Thursday, September 20 - with funds raised helping to support victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Meghan, 37, wearing a £956 Smythe coat, Tuxe top and skirt by her friend Misha Nonoo, greeted her friends from the kitchen with three kisses each.

"Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love", Markle said.

"On a personal level I feel so proud to live in a city with so much diversity".

Meghan Markle just slayed her first major speaking engagement as a royal!

Meghan and Harry then sat down to eat with the women and their guests, including those from the local community, to enjoy a series of dishes that incorporated a blend of cultures.

"There's 12 countries represented in this one group of women".

The palace announced earlier this week that Meghan secretly began meeting and cooking with the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen in January.

The event was attended by Meghan Markle's mum who introduced herself in the most adorable way when she accompanied her daughter as she launched her first solo royal project. Everyone has embraced this so fully because it has been a passion project for us all'. "I'm so excited to see the projects you're going to continue doing in your own community, the community at large, and also how you're going to inspire people globally by sharing your stories and recipes".

The proceeds of the cookbook will go towards supporting the kitchen - which is only open two days a week due to a lack funding - and will keep it open seven days a week.

During her frequent secret visits, Meghan watched as the women came together to cook food to feed families displaced by the Grenfell Tower fire that killed more than 70 people.
