Duchess Meghan Markle Brings Her Mom Doria Ragland to Cookbook Launch

And on Thursday in London, England, Meghan did the honors of giving her first royal speech as the Duchess of Sussex.

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. "Like these women, I'm passionate about food and cooking as a way of strengthening communities", Markle explained in a promotional video.

The Duchess of Sussex has spent the last nine months working on a very special collaborative project with a group of women whose lives were altered by the Grenfell Tower fire, one of the worst fire incidents in British history. "Through this charitable endeavour, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive".

A spokesman for the Hubb Community Kitchen wrote in the forward: "Our kitchen has always been a place of good food, love, support and friendship".

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.

Here are some adorable photos from Meghan Markle's charity cookbook launch, which is her first solo royal project. She paired a pleated, polyester skirt from Misha Nonoo with a sleeveless, turtleneck bodysuit from Tuxe, according to the style site Meghan's Mirror.

Victorian Police based out of Ouyen, near Mildura, questioned MacDonald and charged him with several offences. The man will face a court hearing in November.

At the launch of Meghan's book, Together, Harry only had eyes for his wife in the tent full of crowded people, as he gazed adoringly at her, obviously extremely proud of her achievements.

In a speech to guests, Meghan said the project had been a "tremendous labor of love".

Ms Markle praised the group, saying the diversity of the women was "pretty outstanding" with 12 countries represented.

Sometimes, when we say "find you a man like Prince Harry" we mean 'find a hot, young member of the British royal family to make you a duchess, ' and other times we just mean 'find a sweetheart wo will fix your hair when your hands are full'. "When we get to know the story of the recipe, you get to know the person behind it", she added.

"That, I believe, is the ethos of Together". "I had just recently moved to London, and I felt so immediately embraced by the women of the kitchen".

"It's so impactful-we can see just in a few days alone, and the book's not even out yet, what you've been able to do". Get HELLO! Canada, PEOPLE, Vanity Fair and over 100 more of the world's best magazines for one low monthly price at Texture by Next Issue.
