Does Prince Harry Like Meghan Markle’s Mom?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been married for just under one year. And since then, there has been a lot of drama with Meghan’s family. However, one person who hasn’t seemed to cause any drama is Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. But at the same time, she doesn’t spend too much time with Harry. So, what does Harry think of his mother-in-law?

Doria and Harry have only met a handful of times

Although the two are now related, Doria and Harry don’t spend much time together — and the distance is probably why. Doria is still living out in California while her daughter and Harry have settled down in Harry’s home of the United Kingdom, and distance makes it difficult for them to get together. Doria obviously spent some time with the couple when she was over in the U.K. for their wedding, and she visited once more in September 2018 and attended a cookbook event with the two. But besides that, Harry and Doria have hardly spent any time together. On the plus side, they probably haven’t found much to dislike about one another.

Harry’s family appears to like Doria a lot

Harry’s family is in the same boat as the prince when it comes to spending time with Meghan’s mother. The royal family also hasn’t had much quality time with Doria. However, it appears the queen does have a lot of respect for her. The queen invited Doria to tea with her and Prince Philip when Doria arrived for the royal wedding. That shows that the queen thinks highly of Meghan’s mother and of Meghan as well. Doria and the queen sat down and reportedly had a lovely time together, though Queen Elizabeth hasn’t spent much time with her since.

Harry and Doria seem to have a close relationship

Although Harry and Doria aren’t in the same place very often, it doesn’t mean they don’t communicate at all. Nowadays, with such an incredible amount of technology, people can be in contact with one another constantly. Those close to the royal family have said that Harry and Doria actually have quite a good relationship. Doria joined Meghan back in 2017 for the Invictus Games in Toronto, where they both supported Harry. The prince was probably thrilled to see that his future mother-in-law was making an effort to get to know him.

There have been rumors that Doria will move to the U.K. when Baby Sussex is born

With Meghan and Harry’s first child on the way, there have been rumors that Doria will actually move to the U.K. when the new baby arrives. While Meghan would love this more than anyone, if it is true, then obviously Harry must be alright with it too, which speaks volumes about their relationship. Harry lost his mother when he was young, so there isn’t that motherly figure for the couple who can help show them the ropes of parenthood. They have reportedly asked Prince William and Kate Middleton for parenting advice, but having that third set of hands to help care for the baby could be very beneficial for them.
