Prince Harry caught sneaking samosas as he supports Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle celebrated the launch of a cookbook she helped create on Thursday, and was joined by a special surprise guest: her mom, Doria Ragland.

Another added: "Look how proud Prince Harry looks of his wife Meghan at the launch of her cookbook!"

The dishes include coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala, caramelized plum upside-down cake and spiced mint tea.

FYI: Duchess Meghan is wearing a Misha Nonoo skirt, Smythe coat, and Sarah Flint shoes.

Meghan's husband and mother looked on proudly as she gave a speech to launch the book, telling them the multi-cultural kitchen has been integral in helping her feel welcome in London after moving from Canada where she lived while filming the popular TV series Suits. Needless to say, she nailed it!

Addressing guests at the lunch in Perk's Field, close to Kensington Palace, she said: "Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labour of love".

It turns out that the charity recipe book the Duchess of Sussex has thrown her support behind has rocketed to the top of Amazon's bestseller list on pre-orders alone. "I had just recently moved to London, and I felt so immediately embraced by the women of the kitchen".

They called their project Hubb, the Arabic word for love, and since January - Meghan has been visiting and cooking with them. "(There are) 12 countries represented in this one group of women - (it's) pretty outstanding".

"Everyone embraced this so deeply, because it's been a passion project for all of us - and for very good reason".

Meghan spoke without notes - a rare thing for a Royal.

"I said in the foreword that this is more than a cookbook, and what I mean by that is the power of food is more than just the meal itself, it is the story behind it".

Guests included members of the local community, staff from Ebury Press, which is publishing the book, members of the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, where the kitchen is based, and staff from the Royal Foundation.

"We cook the recipes we've grown up with; there's no stress, and the recipes always work because they have been made so many times - it's proper comfort food".
