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

Doria Ragland joined Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday at a London event to launch a new cookbook for a communal kitchen Meghan is supporting.

It turns out that the charity recipe book the Duchess of Sussex has thrown her support behind has rocketed to the top of Amazon's bestseller list on pre-orders alone.

The dishes include coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala, caramelized plum upside-down cake and spiced mint tea.

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.

Harry was on hand to support Meghan as she celebrated the launch of the cookbook she helped to produce, called Together: Our Community Cookbook.

The duchess was wearing a striking petrol blue long coat by one of her favourite Canadian brands, Smythe - which sold out within minutes - with a pleated midi skirt by her friend Misha Nonoo, a high neck bodysuit by Tuxe and black suede Sarah Flint heels.

Meghan Markle's minimalist, classically modern style has always been one to watch, even more so now that she's the Duchess of Sussex!

The recipes featured in the book are from a group of women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. "That there are 12 countries represented in this one small room, is pretty outstanding".

She added: There's so many people to thank - I'm extremely grateful because this is my first project and I appreciate your support.

She continued: "Everyone embraced this so deeply because it's been a passion project for all of us, and for very good reason".

Speaking about it, the Duchess, who donned an apron to muck in with fellow volunteers on her visits, said she "immediately felt connected" to the kitchen, which she described as a "place for women to laugh, cry, grieve and cook together". The book was inspired by Meghan's visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington, which could only open a few days a week for lack of funds.

The palace said the group of women behind the project had made a decision to gather and prepare fresh food for their families and neighbours, as a way of helping the community to connect, heal and look forward - and to "convene through food".
