Meghan Markle Prince Harry

Meghan reveals how her mother Doria is a pillar of strength while Harry is away


Between her fashion sense and ability to be both regal as well as down-to-earth, Meghan is a modern influencer.

But even influencers, like Meghan Markle, sometimes need to lean on their mums for help.

Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria, are definitely very close. For those who do not know, Prince Harry is a fan of his mother-in-law as well. Doria, after all, is playing a very eminent role in baby Archie and Lilibet’s upbringing.

It’s easy to say that she’s enjoying her new role as a grandmother for the second time! When Meghan Markle’s pregnancy was first announced back in October 2018, Doria Ragland revealed that she was “very happy at this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”

“They’ve had lots of lovely gifts sent from friends and family members including Doria, but the most special thing she’s provided is her time,” the inside source said.

Ragland has been helping out with baby Lili and new big brother Archie Harrison at the Sussexes’ Montecito home, the source shared. “Meghan’s so grateful to have her mom to lean on, and Harry just adores her.”

Ragland also supported her daughter and son-in-law after the arrival of her first grandchild Archie back in 2019, travelling to England for Archie’s birth and staying for several weeks after. But it must be especially lovely for the mother and daughter to no longer be a lengthy plane ride apart! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to call my own mom.
