The emotion on Meghan Markle ‘s mother’s face was visible throughout the touching ceremony as she watched her daughter marry Prince Harry.
Doria Ragland , 61, was moved to tears as she sat alone in the quire at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, listening to the vows the couple were promising each other.
Dressed in a beautiful Oscar de la Renta dress and coat, she captured the nation’s hearts as the only family member present to support Meghan on the special day.
But there was another moment during the wedding weekend that reportedly became Doria’s biggest highlight of the event.
A source told US Weekly: "Doria is saying the biggest highlight of the wedding, of course after watching her daughter say ‘I do’ to the man she loves, was meeting the queen.
"It would have been extremely intimidating for anyone, but Meghan and Harry really did a marvellous job of preparing her [with] what to expect."
And Prince Harry told his new mother-in-law "numerous stories about the Queen as a grandmother and what she [means] to him," the source added.
People have also noticed that Doria and the Queen were both wearing shades of green on the big day.
When Doria arrived in the UK, she had a whirlwind 48 hours meeting members of Prince Harry’s close family including Charles and Camilla and of course the Queen.
She had afternoon tea with the Queen and Prince Philip at Windsor Castle, along with Meghan and Harry.
Doria also met Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the run-up to the wedding.
And she charmed her new in-laws during all the meet and greets.
Royal watchers are now wondering if Doria will give up her life as a yoga teacher and social worker in LA and move to the UK to support Meghan.
One royal insider said Meghan has an incredibly close bond with Doria and values her wise counsel.
The insider added: "When she and Harry start a family it’ll be incredibly hard if her mum is 5,500 miles away."
Meghan, speaking about her mum, has previously said: "We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I’ll still find so much solace in her support."
Doria’s youthful complexion makes her look more like a sister than a mother to Meghan.
She gave birth to daughter Meghan in August 1981 and divorced her father Thomas when she was six.
