The Duchess of Sussex is fully enrolled into her new life as a member of the British royal family, having attended multiple official engagements with her husband of four months, Prince Harry, since they tied the knot in May.
However the 37-year-old gave her mother Doria Ragland a taste of her new life on Thursday as the 62-year-old social worker joined her daughter and son-in-law for the launch of new charity cookbook ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’.
Meghan looked incredible as she showed off her elegant, yet eye-catching, sense of style at the book’s launch event in London, as she stepped out in a sophisticated pleated black skirt, paired with a simple black sleeveless top.
She teamed the classy frock with a pair of black heeled court shoes and kept warm in the British autumn weather by donning an oversized blue coat, and allowed her long dark locks to hang loosely in waves over her shoulders.
Meghan wasn’t the only one dressed to impress though as her yoga instructor mother looked incredibly chic in a camel ensemble, as the pair made their first public appearance together since the royal wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19.
Wearing camel slacks, a camel-coloured long sleeved top and matching shoes, stylish Doria finished off her elegant look with a pashmina which she wrapped around her shoulders to keep out the bitter British cold.
Doria greeted guests today, saying simply: ‘Hi, I’m Meg’s mom.’
Baroness Gail Rebuck, chair of publisher Penguin Random House, told Ms Ragland she must feel “very proud” of the Duchess and her work on the cookbook.
“Head over heels,” she replied. ???? pic.twitter.com/wCZMFPibsm

Doria was pictured leaving Los Angeles earlier in the week, which sparked rumours that she was heading to London to be with her former actress daughter.
And her appearance struck a chord with royal fans the world over as she told the Daily Mail that she was “head over heels” with pride over her daughter’s involvement with the project, and sweetly introduced herself as “Meg’s mum”.
Meghan has written the foreword to the new book ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’, produced by cooks from the Hubb Community Kitchen who clubbed together to cook fresh meals for community members who have been struggling following the fire.
"To the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this adventure with you. I am so privileged to know you. I'm so excited to see the projects you're going to continue to do in your own community, the community at large, and also how you're going to inspire people globally by sharing your stories and your recipes." — The Duchess of Sussex with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen, as they celebrate the launch of ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’. #CookTogether.
The project is to help the victims and families in the community who were affected by the Grenfell Tower inferno in June 2017 that left 72 dead. Over 70 others were injured and 223 people escaped.
Giving a passionate speech at the launch event, Meghan said: “The power of food is more than just the meal itself — it is the story behind it. And when you get to know the story of the recipe, you get to know the person behind it.”
