And we had no idea!!
It was announced earlier this year that Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, would be moving to London – something that made everyone sigh with relief – Meghan needs her mum around after the year she has had!
That’s right. According to The Express, the 61-year-old yoga instructor is ‘moving to the UK’, even quitting her job as a social worker in May in preparation for the big move.
‘She is getting ready to move to London. I think she will be going as soon as possible’ an unnamed LA source reportedly told The 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.’
The source continued: ‘She is fiercely loyal to Meghan and would never betray her like the rest of them. They are so close.’
The reported move is no surprise with the two women known to be extremely close, but what is surprising is the time frame, with it emerging this week that Doria was in fact living with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex over the summer.
‘ICYMI: Sources confirm to @ABC @GMA that Duchess Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland visited Prince Harry and her daughter for an extended stay at their Oxfordshire home this summer,’ royal expert Omid Scobie revealed in a tweet. ’Doria is said to enjoy a close relationship with Harry and continues to be a pillar of strength for Meghan.’
‘I’ll still find so much solace in her support,’ Meghan explained of her mother in an open essay for Glamour before becoming a Duchess. ‘That duality coexists the same way it would in a best friend.’
We’re thrilled for Meghan that her mother is close by!
