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

Prince Harry was also present to support his wife at the launch of the charity cookbook titled Together: Our Community Cookbook.

Harry was standing behind the Duchess and his mother-in-law, Doria Ragland, as they were getting ready to pose for a group photo with the women from the Hubb Community Kitchen, whose recipes are featured in the book.

In her first solo project as a member of the royal family, Meghan wrote the foreword to the new book produced by cooks from the Hubb Community Kitchen, an initiative based near the site of the West London tower.

Meghan arrived at the event, wearing a $1,195 (approximately) £697 petrol blue coat by Canadian brand Smythe, with a black rollneck by Tuxe and a skirt by Misha Nonoo.

In a video captured by ITV's Chris Ship, Meghan says: 'Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love.

In her speech, which was made without notes, Meghan thanked all those involved, adding: "On a personal note I'm especially grateful because this is my first project so I appreciate your support and the vision that I had for this and seeing it come to fruition".


Meghan Markle: she's just like us.

She helped to make chapatis and grill koftas as she launched the cookbook in Perk's Field, outside Kensington Palace.

Ms Ragland embraced each of the women with a warm hug, telling them: 'It's awesome.

The book was inspired by a visit by the former American actress to the Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington, which could only open a few days a week for lack of funds.

Meghan can be heard saying "sorry" to Harry, the pair having a laugh at the situation. Meghan continued, "That's a testament to what this means to people and I'm so proud of you".

And Munira Mahmud, 34, also managed to escape the burning building, leading the rest of her family - including her husband, his father and their two children to safety.
