Meghan Markle happily stepped out to visit the Hubb Community Kitchen to see how funds raised by the 'Together: Our Community Cookbook' are making a difference at Al Manaar, North Kensington on Wednesday morning (November 21) in London, England.

The idea for the cookbook was sparked last summer, when a group of women whose community was affected by the Grenfell fire, gathered to prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbours - and console each other. See all the photos from her sweet meeting with these inspirational women ahead.

As a self-confessed foodie, Meghan often wrote about cooking and recipes on her blog The Tig and so, she's clearly thrilled to be involved in a project that combines her love of food with charitable work.

The pregnant Duchess also beamed as she cradled her baby bump while talking to the women, many of whom are mothers.

Markle has been vocal in support of the Al Manaar Community Center's kitchen efforts before.

With a lack of goals, quality and team harmony, Martin O'Neill and assistant manager Roy Keane simply couldn't stay in the job. Doherty also spoke in-depth about O'Neill's approach as a manager. "There were odd occasions when it did happen".

People reports that the cookbook sold "more than 40,000 copies in U.K", as well as even more internationally, and "raised $270,000 so far in the seven weeks since it went on sale".

Meghan donned an apron as she got stuck into helping prepare 200 meals destined for local elderly people's homes, homeless shelters and women's refuges.

The dishes include Egyptian lamb fattah, Persian chicken and barberry rice.

According to the Palace, the women are now able to use the kitchen seven days a week and gain qualifications to launch their own initiatives to help benefit the kitchen and their community.

Markle has made regular private visits to the kitchen since January.
