Meghan Markle’s mother in pre-wedding whirlwind of royal meetings
Doria Ragland has met many of future son-in-law Prince Harry’s family and will shortly add the Queen to the list.
Meghan Markle’s mother has met the Windsors during a whirlwind round of introductions to the royal family in the run-up to the wedding – with only the Queen remaining.
Doria Ragland chatted to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Windsor Castle this afternoon.
Yesterday she sat down to tea with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall with future son-in-law Prince Harry and the US actress also around the table.
The Queen has yet to be introduced to the US actress’ mother, but Buckingham Palace confirmed the two women will meet on Friday at Windsor Castle, with the prince and his fiancee.
The head of state is likely to host afternoon tea for Ms Ragland, a yoga instructor and social worker, who flew to the UK this week to be by her daughter’s side.
They appeared relaxed and at ease, in contrast to Ms Markle’s heartfelt statement, released earlier in the day, when she confirmed her father Thomas Markle would not be walking her down the aisle.
She added: “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.
“I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”
