MEGHAN Markle’s mother made a big impression during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ Royal Wedding, “admirably” handling the pressure of a day which could have come out of a “fan fiction novel”, says a royal expert.

The loving mother of the bride, Doria Ragland, was immediately welcomed into the Royal Family from the moment she landed in the UK just days before the ceremony.

The 61-year-old was seen sharing a heartwarming moment with Prince Charles during the ceremony, who took her hand to walk her through the halls of St George’s Chapel.

And she seems to fit in perfectly in the family picture that followed the ceremony.

The reasons for such a good chemistry between the royals and Doria come down to her “intelligence” and a few tips Meghan must have given to her mother before the service, according to royal expert James Brookes.

She’ll no doubt have done a little research before flying over on how to address the royals and so on.

“She doesn’t come across as a brash individual and I think she will have been a little reserved during those meetings, which is understandable, while she figured out the situation.

“Meghan will no doubt have spoken to her in the weeks beforehand to give her insights into the family and, the fact that Harry and Meghan were with Doria when she met all the royals will have no doubt made her feel much more at ease.
