The Duchess of Sussex will show off her culinary skills when she welcomes the women behind the cookbook she has championed to Kensington Palace.

The mother and daughter have not been seen together in public since the royal wedding on 19 May.

Following the catastrophic Grenfell Tower fire previous 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.

Ragland was spotted at the airport in Los Angeles a few days ago, and observers assumed she would be in London for Meghan's big event.

According to ITV's Royal Editor Chris Ship, Doria introduced herself saying "I'm Meg's mom" adding that she was "head over heels" with pride over her daughter's role within the cookbook.

All eyes were on Meghan Markle on Thursday (Sept 20) afternoon as she arrived to a special luncheon at Kensington Palace to help celebrate the launch of the charity cookbook Together: Our Community Kitchen, for which she wrote the foreword.

Police say they do not believe Martinez knew the suspect before the attack, and found the knife used in the attack at the scene. Customers at Tommy Wu's restaurant desperately tried to save Ms Martinez, but she was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

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. The California native paired a simple black sleeveless turtleneck from the label TUXE with a coordinating skirt by her close friend Misha Nonoo.

The proceeds of sale from the book will support the Hubb Community Kitchen.

The palace announced earlier this week that Meghan secretly began meeting and cooking with the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen in January.

Caramalised plum upside-down cake and spiced mint tea was also served.

Meghan joined the women to help make the delicious food, before her mother and husband Harry arrived to enjoy the reception.

Guests will include members of the local community, representatives from Ebury Press - publishers of the book - the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, where the cooks are based, and the Royal Foundation.
