As Meghan Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland made her way halfway across the globe to attend her daughter’s wedding, something major was in the works and we’ve only just discovered what it is. It has been reported that the mother-of-the-bride has taken a bold move before hopping on that plane and, in so doing, may just have changed the course of her life - and that of her daughter’s.
US Magazine is reporting that “Meghan Markle’s personal life played a role in her mother Doria Ragland’s decision to quit her job at a mental health clinic in Los Angeles.
“Doria made the very difficult decision to leave her job at the clinic because there had been a lot of calls from the media asking to speak with her because her daughter was marrying Prince Harry,” the insider says. “It just became overwhelming for Doria and she considered taking a leave of absence, but recognized that the interest was only going to continue after the wedding.”
But was there more to the decision than just that? According to the same source, “The social worker, 61, has considered ‘starting her own private practice’ and continues to work as a yoga instructor.” Her fame would certainly help in getting such a business started, but we have to wonder if there is a far more personal reason for the move.
Could it be that the reality of her daughter living so far away has finally sunk in? Perhaps she cannot bear the thought of not being there to support Meghan through all the joys and milestones that are sure to come. And, at Meghan’s age of 36, the first thing on her mind has to be grandkids.
How would she feel living so far away and not being able to see them except on special occasions? I have a hunch that Ms. Ragland has given careful consideration to all the issues at hand and would not be at all surprised to hear news of a big move in the near future.
I can think of no better wedding present than for Doria to announce to Meghan that she is planning to move to London. Certainly, she could get a position as a yoga instructor immediately, and eventually get the proper British credentials to continue her social work if she so desires.
Regardless of what her bold move to quit her job leads to, we can rest assured that it will all become clear in due time. For now, we turn our attention to the big day and wait with bated breath to see all the principal players in their respective roles. It is sure to be an event for the ages, and I for one can hardly wait!!
