According to People, the cookbook, for which Meghan penned the foreward of, features recipes from a group of women who's community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017. "And I just got my copy straight from Kensington Palace", she explained while flipping through the book's pages.

Meghan Markle was accompanied by her husband Prince Harry, and her mom, Doria Ragland for the celebration.

The Duchess of Sussex shielded herself from the wind with a three-quarter-length, wool coat by Smythe.

Meghan quickly got stuck in, preparing food that was laid out on trestle tables, dishing out green rice and later flipping chapatis and then watching kofta kebabs, turning them so they browned evenly.

During her speech today, the Duchess of Sussex described the charity cookbook as a "labour of love" that she has been working on for the past nine months. Meghan continued, "That's a testament to what this means to people and I'm so proud of you".

"I had just recently moved to London and I felt so immediately embraced by the women of the kitchen", she said. Speaking of the Duchess' experience at the kitchen, she said: "She felt very much at home. It's 12 countries represented in this one group of women-it's pretty outstanding", she warmly told the crowd.

In the new book supported by Meghan, some of the recipes are family favourites and all have been created by the cooks who support not only residents affected by the Grenfell fire but others in the community.

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

The former actress also delivered 3-minute remarks without the aid of any notes.

"Soon there were women from different cultures all cooking, swapping recipes, talking and laughing".

Cooking together as a community helped to heal wounds and look forward to the future. All proceeds raised through the purchase of the Together cookbook will help ensure the kitchen stays open seven days a week - thus ensuring full tummies and more laughter.
