• Meghan Markle, allegedly, banned Doria Ragland from seeing Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
  • Prince Harry's wife and her mom are, reportedly, not close in real life
  • Meghan Markle, allegedly, accused Mail on Sunday of 'harassing' and 'exploiting' her dad, Thomas Markle

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are, undeniably, among the most talked-about members of the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, officially, stepped down as senior royals on April 1, approximately three months after they made the shocking announcement through Instagram. Aside from their desire to live a simpler life away from the endless scrutiny of the British media, Meghan and Harry were, reportedly, forced to ditch the royal life for good because of their rumored rift with Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Woman’s Day Australia, in its April 20, 2020 issue, suggested that Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mom, has been added to duchess' ever-growing list of people who have been cut from her life. The entertainment news outlet reported that Doria was not allowed to see Meghan, Prince Harry, and their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm this claim.

“Of course they’re passing it off as a social distancing thing, but Meghan’s been social distancing from people she falls out with her whole life. I’ve heard they barely speak anyway. Doria’s finding it very hard to adjust to this new life – she lives alone and doesn’t feel comfortable leaving much anymore, and Meghan’s barely done a thing to help her,” an unnamed source told the publication.

“What a lot of people don’t know is that Meghan and Doria’s apparent closeness was a relatively new thing. Meg was actually raised mostly by Tom Sr [Meghan’s dad]. The cynical among us can’t help but wonder if Meghan’s closeness with her mum around the wedding was all an act,” it went on.

Previous reports claimed that Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Archie are living in a secluded compound in Los Angeles. However, it remains unclear if the Sussex family and Doria Ragland are living under the same roof.

Meghan and Doria have yet to comment on these reports. However, with Woman’s Day’s reputation for writing stories based on the statements of its undependable and unknown sources, this could be another work of fiction waiting to be debunked. So, avid followers of the Sussex pair should take these unverified claims lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

Meanwhile, Sky News shared Meghan Markle accused the Mail on Sunday of pestering and taking advantage of his father, Thomas. Prince Harry's wife is suing the media outlet after it published a story containing parts of the handwritten letter she sent to her dad in 2018. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the first hearing was conducted remotely.
