Meghan Markle might rope in mother Doria Ragland to resolve family drama
Meghan Markle may not be talking to her family but there is one person she believes she can turn to and it is her mother, Doria Ragland.
Meghan Markle might resort to turning to her mother, Doria Ragland in order to mend her bond with her father, Thomas Markle. The Duchess of Sussex, who is expected to make her solo visit to California to meet her friends and mother, hopes to make use of the time to amend the bitter family drama that has engulfed her life after her marriage to Prince Harry.
A source close to Meghan revealed that the Duchess feels that her mother might be the best person to solve the situation with regard to Thomas who has time and again "embarrassed" her by going to the media and slamming the royal family. "It has just become so embarrassing for Meghan. Like the elephant in the room when she's with people she doesn't know very well," the source said.
The source believes that Meghan is upset about her father doing more damage than controlling it. "What frustrates Meghan the most is that her father doesn't seem to take responsibility for any his actions, as if he can do no harm, and everyone else is to blame," the source told Daily Mail. "Well, he is harming her by putting down the royal family. He's harming her by making everything public. And the more he speaks with the media, the more she wants to stay away. The more he blasts the royal family, the more she wants to stay away."
Meghan and her father had a fallout after the news about him posing photos for the paparazzi came to light. Her older half-siblings, Samantha Markle and Thomas Markle Jr, have also not done her any good by speaking against her in the media.

While Meghan has tried her best to keep her mother, Doria, away from all this drama, the source believes she might finally ask for her help before it is too late. "So far, Meghan's mom hasn't gotten involved, but that may all change when they see each other in person. Meghan has been adamant that her mom not gets dragged into all the drama," said the source. "But if anyone can talk some sense into her dad, it's Doria. Meghan is now open to the possibility of her mom working some magic behind the scenes."
The source believes it is better to solve matters without getting the media involved. "In a perfect world, Meghan would have a reunion with her dad and he would not say one word about it," the source said. It's tricky because her dad will most likely tell his other children about it, and one of them will go blab about it to the world." The source added that Meghan feels hurt to see that it is her own family members who are doing this.
"When Meghan was younger she was the family people-pleaser, always trying to make others happy, including her dad. She's not the same person anymore. Of course, she feels hurt," said the source. "From the get-go, she made it crystal clear that speaking to the press was absolutely prohibited. That out of respect for Harry, this was completely taboo. Yet, time and again her dad continues to do the complete opposite. The last thing she ever wanted was a media circus starring her dad." Meghan is expected to travel to New York first and then to her hometown of Los Angeles. Harry and she will reportedly visit again in the fall.
