Meghan Markle hosted her first major event at Kensington Palace on Thursday and she did it alongside her mother, Doria Ragland, and husband, Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex put on an event to launch a cookbook for which she wrote the foreword. The book, Together: Our Community Cookbook, contains 50 recipes from a group of women who began cooking together after they were affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire.

Ragland was spotted at the airport in Los Angeles a few days ago, and observers assumed she would be in London for Meghan’s big event.

According to Daily Mail correspondent Rebecca English, Ragland introduced herself to guests at the event as “Meg’s mom.”

Meghan also gave a speech thanking the women of the community kitchen as her mom and husband looked on.

The palace announced earlier this week that Meghan secretly began meeting and cooking with the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen in January. All proceeds from the book will benefit the kitchen.
