Meghan Markle's mom joins royals at United Kingdom fundraiser for Grenfell Tower victims

21 September, 2018, 02:08 | Author: Courtney Perry

In London to visit Meghan and her husband for a number of days, Ms Ragland - who, according to reports, is moving to the capital to be near the duchess - was invited to join the celebrations of the cookbook, Together, along with Harry.

Meghan joined the women as they cooked the dishes and helped with preparing the feast, making chapatis and turning koftas on the grill, before they all sat down with Prince Harry, Ms Ragland and their guests.

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.

The charitable book - Meghan's first solo charitable project as a Royal - will use its profits to help the kitchen stay open seven days a week, helping even more members of the community affected by June 2017's Grenfell fire.

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.

"On a personal level, I feel so proud to live in a city that can have so much diversity".

She said: 'I'm so privileged to know you.


Markle showed gratitude to the women for embracing her into their kitchens and for partaking in the cookbook, which she called a "tremendous labor of love". She wrote the foreword for the book.

"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together", the former "Suits" actress said in a statement on The Royal Foundation's website. "Your warmth and your kindness, and also to be in this city and see in this one small room how multicultural it was".

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

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

But while speaking to one guest, a gust of wind blew strands of Meghan's hair into her face and she was seen trying to move it out the way.

"The power of food is more than just the meal itself, it is the story behind it".
