GETTY CHART TOPPER Meghan's new book has already knocked Jamie off the top

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that Duchess Meghan will host a book party at the palace on Thursday to launch Together, Our Community Cookbook, a book of recipes celebrating the power of food and communal cooking to strengthen communities and bring people together.

The Duchess of Sussex is to carry out her first solo royal engagement when she attends the opening of a major art exhibition next week.

Women from the affected community made use of a kitchen in a local Muslim cultural centre to prepare food for their families.

Proceeds from sales of the cookbook, which unfortunately doesn't feature the recipe for the chicken that caused Harry to pop the question, will support the community kitchen and allow it to stay open seven days a week.

What did the foreword say?

"I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen", she writes.

The book, titled Together: Our Community Cookbook, benefits the Hubb Community Kitchen in the same neighborhood as the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy of 2017.

Together has over 50 recipes compiled by the women from the Grenfell community working at Hubb Community Kitchen in London.

During the visit, the Duchess will receive a tour of "Oceania", spending time viewing exhibits from different regions including New Zealand, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and Australia, which she and the Duke of Sussex will visit in October.

"In the introduction, the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen wrote: 'Our kitchen has always been a place of good food, love, support and friendship". "So they used to come here and cook homemade food, take it home for their children".

The Duchess, who has been making private visits to the community kitchen since January, has written a touching foreword for the publication.

Baroness Rebuck DBE, chair of Penguin Random House, added: "We were instantly caught up by the extraordinary vision for this project with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen".

How many members of the Royal Family will show up for Markle's cooking? The women told Meghan that they used to meet at kitchen twice a week to cook for their communities, but unfortunately can not anymore due to lack of funds. "It's handsome - diversity, inclusivity, coming together in grief or joy - there is just so much love".
