Meghan Markle 'Has Full Support Of Mom Doria Ragland' Over Stepping Back From Royal Life
Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle's mother is reportedly happy that her daughter and Prince Harry are taking a step away from the Royal Family. After Meghan voiced her struggles about being in the spotlight while also being a new mother, Doria is fully supportive of the couple's decision to back away.
According to The Mirror, Doria was reportedly worried about her 38-year-old daughter having such a heavy spotlight on her. A friend of Meghan's told the tabloid in light of the recent announcement Harry and Meghan have made about stepping down from being 'senior' royals, Doria is fully supportive.
"Doria is very much about being true to oneself and so, of course, she will continue to encourage Meghan to take the road less travelled," the source said. Meghan has apparently been having panic attacks and been "miserable" while living in the U.K.
Meghan has faced unfair scrutiny from the English press which has led her and her husband to take legal action against certain tabloids stated on their official website. She expressed gratitude towards a reporter’s concern during the “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey" documentary last year.
“Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes," Meghan said.
Queen Elizabeth released a statement yesterday confirming that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be splitting their time between the U.K. and Canada. The press release reads:
"My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family..."
..."we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family. Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK."
Meghan jetted back to Canada days ago to be with Archie who had stayed in Canada with a babysitter. Meghan is reported to be staying abroad for a while Harry sorts out the storm with the royal family. A friend of Meghan's reported that the Duchess has no intention of returning back to the U.K. and is already looking for houses in Canada.
