It is no secret that Meghan Markle has a close relationship with her mother, Doria Ragland. But with the Duchess of Sussex across the pond, the mother-daughter duo cannot see each other as often as they would like. However, with a new royal baby coming, they could change that. Is Meghan Markle’s mother going to the UK?
Further on we come to the end and share insight into where she currently resides and her relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.
Where does Doria Ragland live?
Doria Ragland currently lives in Los Angeles, California, where Meghan Markle was born and raised. According to Telegraph, she lives in a house that she inherited from her father in 2011. Its View Park-Windsor Hills neighborhood is located between Culver City and Inglewood, just east of Los Angeles International Airport.
Is Meghan Markle’s mother moving to the U.K.?
Since the royal wedding, many have speculated that Doria Ragland will move across the pond to be closer to her daughter and son-in-law. However, the royal family has yet to confirm this. That said, with a new house – and lots of guest room – and baby on the way, we wouldn’t be surprised if Meghan Markle’s mother often (if not permanently) joins the duke and duchess.
According to The Daily Mail, the idea that Doria Ragland is moving to the UK was raised between mother and daughter. And, Doria is said to be “outside of himself with excitement,” with regard to the thought. The publication also reports that Doria left her job as a social worker in May 2018 – near the royal wedding. Doria worked for the mental health clinic Didi Hirsch in Culver City, not far from her home in Los Angeles.
Meghan Markle and Doria Ragland’s relationship
Meghan Markle and her mother have a very close bond. Here their relationship is further examined, including what the royal family thinks of Doria Ragland.
They are inseparable
It is quite clear that the relationship between Meghan Markle and Doria Ragland is close. The two are supposedly “inseparable,” a neighbor told The Daily Mail.
Doria has the sweetest nickname for Meghan
The royal family may not allow nicknames in public, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have them! Meghan Markle’s is by far the sweetest. Her mother calls her “flower!”
They practice yoga together
Doria Ragland introduced her daughter to yoga at a young age. The duchess remembers that she had followed Mom and I when she was seven. And although she did not take her practice seriously until her studies, she thanked her yoga teacher for raising her with the practice.
Doria was the only member of Meghan’s family present at the royal wedding
After Meghan Markle’s father walked backwards down the aisle, Doria Ragland eventually became the only Meghan Markle family member present at the royal wedding.
They attend royal engagements together
It is quite unusual to invite a royal son-in-law for an engagement – especially if it is not a family-related relationship. But Meghan Markle broke the protocol and brought her mother with her to a performance on behalf of her cookbook, Together. During the event they cooked chapattis, eggplant masala and coconut cake curry together (and of course stole everyone’s hearts).
That was not the first time that Doria accompanied her daughter to a work event. The former actress usually brought her to various events and also invited her to the Invictus Games.
The royal family loves Doria
Just like Meghan Markle, the royal family welcomed Doria with open arms. Prior to the royal wedding, Doria went to drink tea with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles walked arm and arm with her from the chapel in May 2018 on the occasion of the marriage of their children.
