It’s fair to say that royal life hasn’t been easy for Meghan Markle, especially if you consider her and Prince Harry’s recent decision to step down. But it’s been a complicated adjustment for her family, too: Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, has had her fair share of media attention – and her bond with Oprah Winfrey is one of the reasons why. But the exact way in which the chat show host won Ragland over may come as a surprise.
True to form, Oprah was reportedly in a benevolent mood when she met Meghan’s mom. Ragland was spotted visiting the TV star’s $88 million mansion, known as the “Promised Land,” in Santa Barbara in April 2018 – and sources say she didn’t go away empty-handed.
