Meghan Markle’s inner social circle – who are her most trusted friends?

Meghan Markle

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now fully-fledged Angelenos having made a permanent move to LA in March.

American-born Meghan Markle has friends across Toronto, Canada, and LA.

So, who has made it into the couple’s new Stateside inner circle? Keep reading to find out…

Doria Ragland

Meghan Markle’s inner circle would definitely be incomplete without her mum Doria Ragland. For those who don’t know, Doria Ragland is a social worker and a yoga teacher as well. She has had a perpetual presence in Meghan’s life and spent plenty of time in the UK to support her daughter. She will no doubt regularly visit the couple and meet her grandson.

Serena Williams

Professional tennis player Serena Williams first crossed paths with Meghan back in 2014 at a football charity match. “She quickly became a good friend. I would text when I was travelling, I would rally around for her tennis matches, and what not?” Meghan previously wrote on her now-defunct lifestyle website The Tig. Serena happens to be one of Meghan’s new neighbours as they both live in the same gated area in the exclusive Beverly Hills 90210 postcode.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey, without any doubt, is included in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s ‘squad’. Their son Archie is a member of her book club, after all. Media mogul Oprah was a guest at the royal wedding, although she sadly couldn’t make Meghan’s New York baby shower. Oprah also owns a £40.9million mansion in Montecito, California. Dubbed ‘The Promised Land’, it could make an excellent little getaway for the Sussexes.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra lives in the same neighbourhood as her good buddy Meghan. So with no doubt, she would be a regular guest once the normalcy is restored. They both have been friends for many years. Priyanka Chopra was also present at Meghan and Harry’s wedding. Following baby Archie’s birth in May 2019, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were among the first guests to visit the new parents at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor.

Abigail Spencer

Abigail Spencer acted alongside Meghan Markle on Suits, but they were friends long before the hit TV show. “I saw her and was like, ‘Who is this gorgeous girl?’ She was just so stunning and there was just something about her, and that’s how we met,” Abigail previously told ET. She was even spotted hiking with Meghan and Harry near Vancouver Island during their six-week Christmas break in 2019.
