Speaking without notes at Thursday's Kensington Palace launch event, the Duchess of Sussex gushed over the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, a group of displaced Londoners who came together to cook for their families and neighbors in the wake of last year's Grenfell Tower fire.

Another added: "Look how proud Prince Harry looks of his wife Meghan at the launch of her cookbook!"

After lending a hand in the cooking and preparation, Markle and her guests-among them members of the local community, the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Center and representatives from the publishers of the book, Ebury Press-dined together and tasted the homemade dishes featured in the cookbook, including coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and caramelized plum upside-down cake.

Meghan wrote the foreword to Together: Our Community Cookbook, which has already knocked JK Rowling off the number one spot on Amazon's bestseller list, even though the £9.99 book isn't available to buy until tomorrow.

Meghan arrived at the event, wearing a $1,195 (approximately) £697 petrol blue coat by Canadian brand Smythe, with a black rollneck by Tuxe and a skirt by Misha Nonoo. "It's the story behind it", she said.

She said the project had been a "tremendous labour of love". Markle also penned the book's foreword, in which she discussed the importance of the kitchen to the Grenfell community.

"On a personal level, I feel so proud to live in a city that can have so much diversity. That there are 12 countries represented in this one small room, is pretty outstanding".

She continued: "Everyone embraced this so deeply because it's been a passion project for all of us, and for very good reason".

"We cook the recipes we've grown up with; there's no stress, and the recipes always work because they have been made so many times - it's proper comfort food".

These stories are now being told through a cookbook which comprises family recipes written by the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen.
