Meghan Markle reunites with mom Doria Ragland to celebrate cookbook launch

The reason Meghan Markle always has her hands in her pockets in public

Meghan Markle Is Part of a New Cookbook Project

It appears Prince Harry enjoyed the food on offer at the launch of his wife Meghan's cookbook on Thursday - so much so, that he couldn't resist sneaking some extra out with him!

Meghan has been the driving force behind the book, suggesting the idea to a group of women who came together to cook at a Muslim cultural centre in North Kensington in the aftermath of the Grenfell blaze.

The women of the Hubb Community Kitchen showcased their own personal recipes featured in the cookbook, many of which have been handed down through generations.

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". "Through this charitable endeavour, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive".

She continued: "Everyone embraced this so deeply because it's been a passion project for all of us, and for very good reason". She paired a pleated, polyester skirt from Misha Nonoo with a sleeveless, turtleneck bodysuit from Tuxe, according to the style site Meghan's Mirror. "What a special occasion - the launch of a cook book that celebrates women, their recipes and the power of cooking in bringing people from all cultures together".

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.

In a speech to guests, Meghan said the project had been a "tremendous labor of love". It's 12 countries represented in this one group of women! Now, in London for a few days, she is said to be planning a move to the capital from the U.S. to be close to her daughter.

There's so many people to thank.

"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry, and cook together", writes Markle in the book.

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. "Sorry!" she appeared to say.
