After a family get-together at Buckingham Palace earlier this week and Christmas Day at Sandringham around the corner, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no doubt be preparing to enjoy their first festive season together as a married couple.

But there was still time for a visit to one of the organisations Meghan has worked closely with this year.

The royal couple carried out a private engagement at the Hubb Community Kitchen in west London on Thursday, according to the Court Circular, the official record of royal engagements.

'The Duke and Duchess of Sussex this afternoon visited the Hubb Community Kitchen, 244 Acklam Road, London W10,' the note read.

The Duchess launched the Together: Our Community Cookbook with women from the Hubb, whose community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, back in September.

After she made a private visit the Hubb's kitchen at the Al Manaar community centre in January, Markle has continued to support the group throughout the year.

She was joined by her mother, Doria Ragland, and Prince Harry at a launch event held at Kensington Palace in September. Two months later, Markle returned to the kitchen to find out how funds raised by the best-selling book had been used to renovate the cooking facilities. Soon after this visit, the Palace confirmed that Together had raised £210,000 from UK sales alone.

It's likely that the Sussexes were welcome visitors on Thursday, but they weren't the only famous faces to make an appearance at the Hubb.

Royal commentator Omid Scobie tweeted a picture showing one of the one Hubb founders, Munira Mahmoud, posing with Adele, who has been a prominent supporter of the Justice4Grenfell campaign.
