Doria Ragland spoke for the first time about her daughter's relationship with the British prince in the documentary "Harry and Meghan". The first episodes of the anticipated documentary series "Harry and Meghan" raised a lot of dust, and Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who spoke publicly for the first time about her daughter's relationship with the prince, attracted a lot of attention.
" "My name is Doria and I am Meghan's mom, and the last five years has been challenging, yeah. I'm ready to have my voice heard, that's for sure. A little bit of my experience you know, as her mom."," says the 66-year-old yoga instructor in the documentary, and she also told what it was like when she found out that Meghan and Harry were in a relationship.
Meghan, who starred in the series "Suits" at the time, revealed to her mother over the phone that she was dating the prince. She recalled her daughter's first date with Harry. "When she told me, we were on the phone and she says, 'Mommy, I'm going out with Prince Harry.
And I started whispering, 'Oh my God.' She says, 'You can't tell anyone.' " "He was just really nice," she said.

"She was keeping me safe. She was teaching me to take care of my body. She was introducing me to history, and fostering a love of being outdoors.
She was planting the seed for me to become a foodie," Meghan wrote in a reflection on her mother's disciplined parenting. "She was showing me how to be a daughter, not just in that moment, but for when I became that grown woman.
For right now. And thirty years from now. She was loving me. So tightly." In the first episodes of the documentary, the runaway couple revealed that the royal family did not provide them with the necessary protection, and they again called it racist.
Harry also shared some painful memories of his mother, Princess Diana, and the documentary draws comparisons between her and Meghan. In the first episodes, we can also see rare shots of their children, son Archej and daughter Lilibet.
