Proceeds from the cookbook will allow the women's Hubb Community Kitchen in West London to remain open seven days a week.

It remains to be seen, however, whether the American duchess was forced to spell "endeavour" with the British "ou", or whether she did it out of her own volition.

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more ideal.

Speaking about it, the Duchess, who donned an apron to muck in with fellow volunteers on her visits, said she "immediately felt connected" to the kitchen, which she described as a "place for women to laugh, cry, grieve and cook together".

The Duchess of Sussex has spoken of how important the multicultural Grenfell kitchen was in making her feel welcome in London, as she brought her mother Doria as the surprise guest at her book launch.

She greeted guests at the launch, by saying: 'Hi, I'm Meg's mom'.

With Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk also in Group F, City appeared to have one of the kinder draws but is now playing catch-up. Lyon were asserting themselves well in the early stages of the match, frustrating City from having any sort of rhythm.

The group then sat down to a lunch with women from the kitchen and people from the Royal Foundation and publisher that included potato fritters with coriander chutney, beef and aubergine casserole, coconut chicken curry and Russian semolina cake.

In the new book supported by Meghan, some of the recipes are family favourites and all have been created by the cooks who support not only residents affected by the Grenfell fire but others in the community. "That there are 12 countries represented in this one small room, is pretty outstanding", she continued.

She said the project had been a "tremendous labour of love".

In her foreword, the 37-year-old spoke about how much her mother's cooking made an impact on her life.

They called their project Hubb, the Arabic word for love, and since January - Meghan has been visiting and cooking with them. "I could not be more excited about it and proud of you".

"And when you get to know the story of the recipe you get to know the person behind it, and that's what we're talking about in terms of coming together, to really engage and talk and to be able to celebrate what connects us, rather than what divides us".
