Will Doria Ragland Spend More Time With the Royals When Baby Sussex Arrives?

Doria Ragland is the mother of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and mother-in-law to Prince Harry. She was Meghan’s only family member who was in attendance at the royal wedding, and each time the camera focused on her, tears of joy were clearly visible in her eyes. Doria loves Meghan and Harry dearly, and the feeling is obviously mutual.

Since Doria still lives in Los Angeles, California, many royal fans were wondering if she would make the move across the pond when Meghan and Harry got married. When that didn’t happen, it left many wondering if she will move in with the Duke and Duchess when the baby arrives. Now that the birth is imminent, the question on many minds is whether Doria will be spending more time with the royals?

Unlike Harry, who obviously comes from a very tight-knit family, Meghan doesn’t have any family members in England at all. She is estranged from her father, Thomas Markle, as well as her half-sister and brother, leaving her with only the royals to see on a regular basis. This must be difficult for her now that she is expecting her first child, as she likely wants the baby to know his or her grandmother extremely well. 

Doria gets along well with the royal family

It was evident at the royal wedding when Doria walked out of Saint George’s chapel arm in arm with Prince Charles that she gets along wonderfully with Harry’s family. As most people are well aware, Queen Elizabeth even invited Doria to spend Christmas with the royals at Sandringham. Chances are, the rest of the family — including Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Philip — all adore Doria as well. Although she is technically not a royal member, she fits in with the family as well as anyone could expect.

Meghan has always been extremely close to her mother, and there is no doubt that she would love to have her nearby! Although the two most likely speak on the phone as much as possible, it is just not the same as having each other there in person. Now that Harry and Meghan have officially moved into their 10-bedroom home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage, there is definitely more than enough space for Doria to stay with them for as long as she would like to.

Has Doria spent a lot of time with the royals in the past?

Sadly, she has not. Due to the fact that she lives so far away, it has been difficult for Doria to spend much time with Harry’s family. She has made a few trips to London since the wedding, but chances are Meghan and Harry would like for her to be there more often. Now would be the perfect time for Doria to do just that, as Meghan certainly needs her mom by her side when the baby arrives.

Will Doria be spending more time with the royal family when the baby arrives?

While it remains to be seen as to whether Doria will actually live in England after Meghan and Harry welcome the royal baby, odds are that she will be spending a lot of time in the United Kingdom. Meghan’s mother is reportedly already planning on being there for the birth of Baby Sussex. We only hope that Meghan and Harry can talk Doria into staying in England as much as possible for some very important bonding time with them and the new baby, and to get to know the rest of the family as well!
