As family saga threatens to overwhelm Meghan Markle, her mother is doing the most MOM thing ever
Meghan Markle and the royal family are finding it hard to cope with Meghan's family drama but her mother is making sure that she has her support
Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, is reportedly preparing to move to Britain to be closer to her daughter. The 61-year-old is apparently "beside herself with excitement" with the news about becoming neighbors to her daughter and son-in-law. One of her close friends believes that the Duchess of Sussex's mother might make the move to Britain by next month. Doria, who was the only member from Meghan's family to attend the royal wedding in May, was reportedly happy with the British royalty and how they treated her during the event. While the rest of the family members of Meghan are trying to bring her and the royal family down with their tell-all interviews, Doria has never said a word about the royals or Meghan since the wedding.
"She is getting ready to move to London. I think she will be going as soon as possible. I know that she was eager to live closer to her daughter," a close friend of Doria told Express. "She hasn’t been staying at her house for a while now. She has only visited the house very occasionally and when she is there she has had a security guard with her. He has been with her since about November. She is fiercely loyal to Meghan and would never betray her like the rest of them. They are so close."
Doria visited England during Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry, and managed to win the hearts of millions as she loyally stood beside her daughter and cried tears of joy when she watched her daughter get married to the love of her life. “She also fell in love with England and told me when she got back that it’s somewhere she believes she too could happily live," the friend added.
Doria's friend believes that Doris' plan to move to England is not sudden and she had the idea while Meghan and Harry were preparing for their wedding.
"I think this has been coming for a while. Even before the wedding, she told me how she misses her Megs so much she would do anything to be closer to her, especially now Meghan will be starting a family of her own," she said. Another source close to Doris seemed to echo the same thought and spoke about the strong bond shared between Meghan and her mother.
"I’d bet Meghan is just as thrilled at the thought of having her mom close, especially when she and Harry have children. Doria is going to be an absolutely amazing grandma," said the source. Meanwhile, another friend of Doria added, "She might have looked shy on TV at Windsor Castle, but she’s a real live-wire, full of enthusiasm. I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like her.” While Meghan shares an inseparable bond with her mother, the same does not apply to the rest of her family members.
Ever since her engagement with Prince Harry was announced, her father, Thomas Markle, half-sister, Samantha Markle, and half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr. have been critical of Meghan and the royal family. Recently, Thomas revealed that he was planning to give a speech at Meghan's wedding but decided not to do so after she told him that there was "no room for his speech" in the wedding. He insists that he won't be silenced until the royal family or Meghan talks to him.
