Every Photo of Meghan Markle's Cookbook Launch at Kensington Palace

Meghan Markle hosted the launch of Together: Our Community Cookbook at Kensington Palace today with her mom, Doria Ragland, and husband Prince Harry. At the heartwarming, collaborative event, the Duchess of Sussex helped prepare dishes from the book with women from Hubb Community Kitchen, who are survivors of the 2017 Grenfell fire and whose personal recipes were featured in the publication.

The festivities marked a lot of firsts for Meghan, who just officially joined the royal family four months ago. It was her first time hosting an event at the palace, it honored her first solo project, and she gave her first public speech as a member of the royal family.

“I said in the foreword that this is more than a cookbook,” Markle said. “And what I mean by that is the power of food is more than just the meal itself; it is the story behind it. And when you get to know the story of the recipe, you get to know the person behind it. And that’s what we’re talking about in terms of coming together, to really engage and talk and be able to celebrate what connects us rather than what divides us.”
