The most highly anticipated wedding of the year has finally come and gone. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dominated the headlines for months leading up to the day they said their “I do’s” and, when the day came, it’s all anyone could talk about.
Millions of people around the globe gathered around their television sets to watch the historic moment unfold. It’s an occasion that no one will forget in their lifetime. It’s not every day we have the opportunity to witness the marriage of a young royal, much less one that marries an American.
Though Meghan Markle has been in the world’s spotlight for a short amount of time, she’s managed to find a way to make her mark in the universe, and people can’t seem to get enough of her. She willingly chose to give up her L.A. actress lifestyle and pursue a royal life hand in hand with her real-life Prince Charming.
While all eyes were on the beautiful couple during the magnificent wedding, many took notice of other key family members during the day. Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, collectively wowed the masses as they performed their particular roles with effortless grace.
Aside from them, many paid a close watch to the bride’s mother, Doria Ragland. She made the long journey alone to be her daughter’s stronghold and support for the biggest day of her life. She looked absolutely stunning and beamed with pride every time she laid eyes on her daughter.
In front of the cameras, she appeared to be welcomed and adored by the entire royal family. While looks can be deceiving, many wondered if it was all for show, or if she truly respected and loved the life in which her daughter chose to live.
We hadn’t heard anything from Doria after the wedding - until now. Just two weeks after the wedding excitement has settled, she’s finally broken her silence on her true feelings, leaving us at a loss for words.
According to sources, Doria had one moment, in particular, that stood out far above the rest. “Doria is saying the biggest highlight of the wedding, of course after watching her daughter say ‘I do’ to the man she loves, was meeting the Queen. It would have been extremely intimidating for anyone, but Meghan and Harry really did a marvelous job of preparing her [with] what to expect.”
The way her new son-in-law helped prepare her to meet one of the most influential people on the planet is a perfect reminder of why we love Prince Harry so very much. It is reported that Harry shared “numerous stories about the Queen as a grandmother and what she [means] to him.”
Knowing that the family is not only openly accepting Harry’s bride, but also his mother-in-law is something that gives us a great deal of comfort. We are thrilled to see just what is in store for them all as they begin on a journey of a lifetime together.
