Meghan Markle's Mum's "Biggest Highlight of the Royal Wedding" Involves Queen Elizabeth II

  Meghan Markle's Mum's Meghan Markle had her mum, Doria Ragland, by her side when she tied the knot with Prince Harry on May 19. Even though it was a big day for Harry and Meghan, the royal affair also doubled as an important moment for Doria, seeing as it was her first time bonding with the entire royal family.

'For all of the people who said I am getting her gifts and I'm trying to bribe her for an interview — they were kumquats,' Winfrey quipped. 'If kumquats can get you an interview, I'm all for it!'

Her appearance at the wedding added more fuel to the fire as far as a potential interview between Doria and Oprah; at the time of their meeting, multiple sources had suggested that it was just the first of many that would take place between the two women in anticipation of a more in-depth interview.  

'No one knows how to schmooze better than Oprah,' a source told DailyMail.com of the meeting between the two women.

'It’s very much her MO to win people over by showering them with her personal attention – and gifts – to get what she’s after.

The source said: 'Oprah and Doria spent a long time chatting and they got on really well. The most important and significant issue they spoke about was race and how badly some people had reacted to Meghan and Harry.

'What happened to Meghan and Harry was disgusting and they and all of their families were horrified. It’s an issue close to both Doria and Oprah, who have both suffered racism.'

'Doria is no longer working at the mental health clinic in the Los Angeles area. It was Doria’s decision to leave,' a source told the outlet. 'She has talked about starting her own private practice, focusing on working with elderly patients.'

Meghan opened up about her mother and her work with the elderly in an essay published by Glamour last August.

'My mom's a yoga instructor, but she does social work, as well, and she works specifically with the geriatric community,' she wrote.

'For me to watch this level of life-long sensitivity to nurturing and caregiving, but at the same time my mom has always been a free spirit. She's got dread locks and a nose ring. She just ran the LA Marathon.

'We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I'll still find so much solace in her support,' she added. 'That duality coexists the same way it would in a best friend.'
