Harry was standing behind the Duchess and his mother-in-law, Doria Ragland, as they were getting ready to pose for a group photo with the women from the Hubb Community Kitchen, whose recipes are featured in the book.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex helps to prepare food at the launch of a cookbook with recipes from a group of women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire at Kensington Palace in London, Britain September 20, 2018.

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more ideal.

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

The Duchess of Sussex held her intimate launch at Kensington Palace this afternoon and was joined by her mother, Doria Ragland, and Prince Harry for the special day. "The power of women", she said.

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

For the kickoff of the culinary guide, for which Meghan wrote the heartfelt foreword, she stepped out in a characteristically stylish ensemble including a skirt by friend and favorite Misha Nonoo, and a turtleneck bodysuit by Tuxe.

Musk's successes have recently been overshadowed by his behavior and the struggles of his Tesla electric auto company to deliver. The British diver, Vernon Unsworth, sued Musk for defamation on Monday and is seeking more than $75,000.

"Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love", she said at the event.

Today, she hosted a launch party for the book, and delivered her fist speech as duchess.

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

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.

"That, I believe, is the ethos of Together".
