‘Thank goodness for Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland,’ says Fiona Phillips

While the rest of the western world has been gripped by Harry and Meghan’s Great Royal Escape, there’s one special person who has maintained a dignified silence.

Thank goodness then for Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mum, who has displayed a sense of decorum while simultaneously continuing to provide the couple with love, wisdom and strength.

The saying goes that there’s no love like a mother’s love.

And Doria, the epitome of grace at her daughter’s Westminster Abbey wedding – as well as throughout the difficult times since – has quietly shown that stepping back and shunning the limelight while offering support and keeping mum on family matters is the perfect way to play it.

She is dignity personified and a brilliant mother, according to her daughter, who says: “We can just have so much fun together yet I’ll still find so much solace in her support.”

Clearly Doria’s priority is her daughter’s happiness, a position which is admirable considering that many in her situation would no doubt have tried to exploit the limelight for personal gain and self-aggrandisement.

Instead, she is rock-steady and reliable in her support for the young couple and is quietly keeping an eye on the consequences of their decision to go it alone outside the confines of the Royal Family.

Apparently she has told friends that Meghan is “strong” and will “always be OK”.

This is all in direct contrast to her ex-husband’s undignified poor old me stance, alongside critical swipes aimed at his ex-wife – the latest of which being that Doria always looks “uncomfortable” and “like the deer in the headlights”, while at royal occasions.

In contrast to her former husband, she has been a tower of strength to the young royal couple and is delighted that she’ll be able to spend more time with new grandson Archie, away from the exposure of full-on royal duties and the hysteria that always accompanies them.

Dignity is all to Doria. The Royals are very lucky to have her.
