Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, is a yoga instructor and social worker. She divorced Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle when Meghan was six years old. Meghan has written emotionally about her mother and about what it is like being a biracial person (her mother is black, and her father is white). There is some confusion online as to Doria’s last name, with many sites listing it as Radlan, (incorrectly), Doria’s Facebook page lists her name as Ragland.

Meghan is close to her mother and has spoken about their close relationship. “Always proud of this beautiful woman,” she wrote on Mother’s Day. “Honoring my mom, Doria, and all the amazing mamas in our lives.”
