Meghan Markle gives PASSIONATE speech – WATCH Prince Harry’s loving reaction
MEGHAN Markle was joined by her mother Doria Ragland and Prince Harry as she hosted her first lunch at Kensington Palace for the launch of her charity cookbook – watch as Harry stares lovingly at Meghan as she gives a passionate speech.
Meghan Markle hosted the lunch to mark the publication of ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’, which features a range of diverse recipes by women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017.
Meghan spoke about how privileged she feels to know the women as she addressed them in a speech prior to the lunch.
Prince Harry and her mother can be seen grinning at Meghan as she gave the speech.
The Duchess said: “I had just recently moved to London and I felt so immediately embraced by the women of the kitchen.

“Your warmth and your kindness, and also to be in this city and see in this one small room how multicultural it was.”
She added: “I’m so privileged to know you. I’m so excited to see the projects that you are going to continue to do in your own community, the community at large and also how you are going to inspire people globally by sharing your stories and your recipes.
“It’s so impactful. We can see just in a few days alone, and the book is not even out yet, what you have been able to do.
“That’s a testament to what this means to people and I am so proud of you.
“So, on that note, I know some of you have started eating – as you you should – I would be the last one to want the good get cold.
“So, please, enjoy a beautiful lunch and another round of an applause for the woman accompanying in the kitchen.”
The Duchess honoured her mother as the inspiration behind the cookbook, dedicated to raising funds for Grenfell victims.
Dishes featured in the book include coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala and caramelised plum cake.
The royal couple sat down with the women and their guests to enjoy the food.
Meghan helped to prepare some of the food with the women from the local community, including the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre and the book’s publishers.
The Duchess wore a black knitted body, £98, from Tuxe, a label she has previously worn on royal engagements.
She paired this with a black pleated skirt from Misha Nonoo. The Saturday skirt costs £188, and is currently still in stock – although will be sure to sell out soon.
The most striking element of Meghan’s look was her blue coat, which was from Canadian brand SMYTHE, and costs an eye-watering £1,186.
