'She's a natural!' Meghan Markle charms Grenfell children at charity cookbook launch

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (C) arrives with her mother Doria Ragland (L) and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex to host an event to mark the launch of a cookbook with recipes from a group of women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The duchess wrote the foreword for Together, which is in bookshops from Thursday but has been available to order online for a few days.

Meghan got stuck in and helped prepare the lunch menu which included coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and a range of chapatis and sharing dips.

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

Based on the way Meghan was looking at Doria before and during the event. we're guessing she'd love to have mama bear close.

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.

SC declares emergency ahead of storm Florence
The window for the storm to miss the United States coast and turn harmlessly back to sea is closing, CNN forecasters said. It was about 1,500 miles from the easternmost Caribbean islands on Sunday and may become a hurricane by Monday.

The vegetable samosas feature in Meghan's first solo project, Together: Our Community Cookbook, which was released today to support women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. "Your warmth and your kindness, and also to be in this city and see in this one small room how multicultural it was".

'Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labour of love, ' says Meghan.

Meghan says she felt "embraced" by the women from the community kitchen after just moving to London.

The "Together: Our Community Cookbook", a collection of 50 recipes from the diverse users of the communal kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, will be used to allow the project to expand and open for up to seven days a week.

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 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".
