Meghan Markle is slowly getting ready for her integration into British royalty, and her mother, Doria, is on the other side of the ocean doing the exact same thing except with the American version: Oprah Winfrey. Arguably one of the most iconic African-American women of all time, Oprah Winfrey, and Meghan Markle’s mother were seen hanging out this past weekend.
In a report from The Daily Mail, Doria Ragland was enjoying time with the legendary talk show host in preparation for a joint interview.
Meghan, Doria, and Oprah were seen at her home in California just three weeks ahead of Meghan’s marriage to Prince Harry. As you may know, Harry and Meghan are slated to get married on the 19th of this month.
According to the Daily Mail, Doria left Oprah’s $88 million home with a gift basket stacked to the brim with many of Winfrey’s essential items.
Day 1 out of 19. #19factstillmeghanandharrymarry Fact 1: The engagement ring was fashioned with two stones belonging to Princess Diana, Harry's mother. The central stone is from Botswana, where Harry and Meghan went on safari in September. Harry designed the ring himself and it was costum made by court jewelers Cleave and Company. The ring is made of yellow gold, which Harry said, is Meghan's favourite. When asked about the ring during their official engagement interview Harry said that the two stones were from his mother's jewelery collection to make sure that she's with the couple on their journey.
A source who spoke with the publication claimed that Oprah is perhaps one of the best “schmoozers” in the world. She knows how and when to give a gift, as well as what it should be.
As you may know, Winfrey has her own media empire called the OWN network, or the Oprah Winfrey Network. Clearly, she wants her own scoop on the matter.
Regarding the attendance of the year’s and maybe even the century’s biggest wedding, if reports are true, Meghan supposedly hasn’t invited many of her family members due to their, shall we say, rambunctious nature, for lack of a better word.
Thomas Markle Junior claimed that Meghan didn’t want to invite all of them because she would “be embarrassed by them.” Harry and the Suits alum are getting ready to get married on the 19th of May, and nearly one billion are going to watch the event.
