Meghan Markle’s mum Doria may make guest appearance in Oprah interview

Meghan Markle's mum Doria Ragland could be making a surprise guest appearance in the bombshell Oprah interview next month.

The mother and daughter duo are said to be extremely close, and the interview could give us further insight into their relationship.

The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry moved to the US last year, and it is understood Doria is a big reason for the move.

Doria, 64, was the only member of Meghan's family to attend the Royal Wedding in 2018, which is why it could be likely she appears in the interview.

She has been on hand to help with childcare following the birth of Meghan and Harry's first son Archie Harrison, one, in May 2019, writes HELLO!

She will undoubtedly be around to help now Meghan and Harry are expecting their second child together later this year.

Ahead of Archie's arrival, Doria flew over to the UK to spend time with Meghan at Frogmore Cottage and to help her ease into parenthood in the weeks following Archie's birth.

Doria is also understood to have been introduced to Meghan and Harry's neighbour and friend Oprah Winfrey in the weeks leading up to their royal wedding in 2018.

According to Oprah, Doria spent an afternoon with her at her home before the big day, reports The Express.

The chat show star later told Entertainment Tonight: "The story was that Meghan's mom had come to my house and she left laden with gifts.

"You know what the gifts were? First of all, she's great at yoga, so I said, 'Bring your yoga mat and your sneaks in case we just want to do yoga on the lawn.'

"So one of the bags was a yoga mat and the other was lunch."

Oprah added: "She said, 'I love kumquats,' and I said, 'I have a kumquat tree! You want some kumquats?'

"So it was a basket of kumquats, people.

"For all of the people who said I am getting her gifts and I'm trying to bribe her for an interview – they were kumquats. If kumquats can get you an interview, I’m all for it!"

Last week it was revealed that Meghan and Harry had agreed to do a no-holds-barred interview with Oprah which is due to air on March 7.

The CBS special will focus mainly on Meghan with Harry joining in at the end.

The interview is expected to be the first time the couple publicly discuss their decision to quit as senior royals and has reportedly ruffled feathers among Palace aides who fear they could be the target of criticism.

Given Oprah's friendship with Doria and Meghan's tight-knit bond with her mother, there is a chance she could feature in part of the TV special.

Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Prime-time Special will air on Sunday, March 7 at 8pm EST on CBS, which is around 1am in the UK.
