The Duchess of Sussex’s first charity project as a member of the royal family was announced by Kensington Palace this week.

Meghan is supporting the ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook,’ with recipes from the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, an initiative which helps those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

And now the book has topped Amazon UK’s best sellers ahead of its release on 20 September, knocking Robert Galbraith off the top spot – Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s male pseudonym.

The Duchess, who has been making private visits to the community kitchen since January, has written a touching foreword for the publication.

In it, she writes: “I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together.

“Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy – in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy – something we can all relate to…

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

 

Tomorrow, Meghan will host a celebratory event at Kensington Palace to mark the launch of ‘Together,’ alongside the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen.
