Meghan’s mum Doria speaks for first time and says ‘I’m ready to have my voice heard’

Meghan Markle's mum Doria Ragland made her screen debut in her daughter and son-in-law's new Netflix docuseries Harry and Meghan where she says she's 'ready to have my voice heard'.

Doria is seen in a simple orange top with a silver necklace. Her hair is back in a big bun at the back of her head as she speaks publicly for the first time since her daughter became part of the Royal Family.

"The last five years has been challenging," she begins as she introduces herself as the duchess mum.

"I'm ready to have my voice heard," she says as she reveals she wants to share her side of the story as Meghan's mum.

When asked about her memories as Meghan first told her she was dating Prince Harry, Doria says: "We were on the phone and she says [in a whisper] 'Mummy I'm going out with Prince Harry' and I started whispering oh my god.

"So from the beginning it was very 'oh my god no one can know'"

She continues to reminisce about the first time she met the prince.

"He was this 6'1 handsome man with red hair. Really great manners, he was just really nice.

"And they looked really happy together. Like he was the one."

In the docuseries, Meghan also talked about her experience joining the royal family, and expressed awkwardness in formality when she first met Kate and William.

Prince Harry also talked about his own mother, Princess Diana, and how he admired the way she protected him and his brother from the cameras.

Meanwhile, the Royal Family have been bracing themselves for the bombshells revealed in the documentary, with the Prince of Wales reportedly ready to challenge any claims he deems 'wild'throughout the six-part Netflix series.

This is the first time ever Doria has stepped up in front of the camera by herself to talk. She has previously been spotted on camera with Meghan and sometimes Harry.

She was recently spotted in a picture on Twitter, where she joined her daughter Meghan and grandson Archie on Meghan's zoom call with an academic.

Doria was the only family member of Meghan's to attend the royal wedding in 2018 and was pictured chatting to King Charles at St George's Chapel ahead of the ceremony.

In an interview with Glamour magazine from before she met Prince Harry, Meghan described her mother as 'a free spirit', saying: "My mum's a yoga instructor, but she does social work as well and she works specifically with the geriatric community.

"She's got dreadlocks and a nose ring. She just ran the LA Marathon. We can just have so much fun together, and yet I'll still find so much solace in her support. That duality co-exists the same way it would in a best friend."

The remainder of the six-part series – which drop next Thursday – will see the couple open up further about their lives and most notably, their experience during their time as senior working Royals in the UK, featuring everything from Piers Morgan , who said he's "traumatised" by being "exploited" in it, to a bizarre piece of footage that appears to be of Katie Price leaving court.
