Meghan Markle's mother flew over from LA to support her daughter at the launch of her new charity cookbook.

A group of women came together after the blaze to cook for the community. "That there are 12 countries represented in this one small room, is pretty outstanding".

Meghan's husband and mother looked on proudly as she gave a speech to launch the book, telling them the multi-cultural kitchen has been integral in helping her feel welcome in London after moving from Canada where she lived while filming the popular TV series Suits. Proceeds from the cookbook will allow the women's Hubb Community Kitchen in West London to remain open seven days a week.

Zahira Ghaswala, who hosted Meghan's first visit to the kitchen, said reaction to the book was "positive".

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.

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

Meghan, looking radiant as always, joined the women from the Hubb Community Kitchen and helped cook a meal of coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and chapatis on the grounds of the royal couple's palace home.

If ever there was proof needed of Prince Harry's love for his wife, this is it.

Meghan wrote the foreword to Together: Our Community Cookbook, which has already knocked JK Rowling off the number one spot on Amazon's bestseller list. "I am so privileged to know you", she added.

The Hubb Community Kitchen which is based at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre is a place for local women to gather and cook for members of the community where an inferno tore through Grenfell Tower, a tragic event which took the lives of 72 of the building's residents.

She phoned their mother, who was with them on the 19th floor to warn them about the fire - giving them enough time to get out of the building.
