Meghan Markle’s mother just pulled the most ‘mum’ move ever in her dress fitting

And everyone loves her even more.

And everyone loves her even more.

Since becoming a Duchess, Meghan Markle has struggled with one side of her family, the Markles.

From her father, Thomas Markle, repeatedly talking about his daughter to the press, to her estranged half-sister Samantha Markle threatening to appear on Celebrity Big Brother and even turning up at Kensington Palace unannounced, it has been a challenging few months.

Luckily, one family member has always been a constant at Meghan’s side, her mother Doria Ragland.


The 62-year-old has reportedly moved to London to be close to her daughter, and has even attended several events by her daughter’s side.

Everyone was talking about the social worker this week however because of a revelation involving her outfit to the royal wedding in May.

Doria’s iconic outfit to her daughter’s big day was designed by Oscar de la Renta, with Meghan reportedly selecting the American fashion house as she wanted a US label represented at her wedding.


But it wasn’t the finished look that got the designers talking. Instead it was Doria’s sweet and relatable approach, with the mother of the bride reportedly bringing home made snacks to her fitting in LA for the designers behind her look.

‘Doria is so sweet!’ designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia said of Doria. ‘We flew to LA to meet Doria and she brought us snacks to the fitting.’

They continued: ’They were healthy snacks because she’s a runner. She’s so sweet, her snacks were so cute too. It wasn’t like cookies, it was very thought out’

We can see where Meghan gets it from!
