"I just found this picture of us all, on the day our cookbook came out. The Duchess had wrapped a book for each one of us and wrote a lovely message to each lady on the first page."

They continued: "Always very thoughtful, today we received a lovely voice message from the Duchess, being the 5 years anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy, asking how we are, about our children and families and giving us news of hers. Just being her beautiful kind self."

Last year, Meghan, who wrote the foreword for the Hubb's Together cookbook, which was published to raise funds for a renovation of the kitchen that provided meals for bereaved and homeless local people after the June 2017 tragedy, which claimed 72 lives, called the A-Mannar centre.

In her call, she said: "We founded Hubb together and I think what I'm most proud of is what you've all been able to do, not just what we created to meet an immediate need right after the fire.

"If you go back to where it all began you just didn't have a place to cook and people forget that's what it came down to, needing the resources to do what you do so well — as we all know because we can taste it. But also to do it together and how...the cookbook ended up having the impact we wanted because it raised enough to get you all the help in the kitchen you needed."
