Meghan Markle's mom Doria Ragland supports her cookbook launch

The Duchess of Sussex took her mother Doria Ragland for the launch of the charity cookbook in Kensington Palace and while socializing with guests, Doria said: "I'm Meg's mum".

Ragland's arrival was particularly notable considering the public has not seen her and Meghan together since her daughter's May wedding and this marks Ragland's first public engagement since the marriage.

Meghan, 37, went back to chatting to some other event-goers, but Harry, still doting on his wife, affectionately rested his chin on the duchess' shoulders.

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.

The book, Together: Our Community Cookbook, contains 50 recipes from a group of women who began cooking together after they were affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire.

A group of women came together after the blaze to cook for the community.

"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen", Markle says in a promotional video for the book.

The Duchess of Sussex brought her mother to the launch of the Grenfell community cookbook she has championed - and helped prepare lunch for the guests.

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.

Following the catastrophic Grenfell Tower fire past year, a group of women gathered in a communal kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in West London, where they could prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbours.

The duchess first found inspiration for the cookbook during a visit to the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in west London, which she first visited (under the radar and out of the glare of the paparazzi's lens) last January. "Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy-in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy-something we can all relate to..."

It also emerged on Monday that two of the women who worked on the cookbook with Meghan saved the lives of seven people from different families. She also expressed her heartfelt affection for the project.
