Mother's Love: Meghan Markle Shares The Sweet And Soft Nickname Her Mom Calls Her

Date May 17, 2018

While it may seem like Meghan Markle's family is displeased with her from distancing herself from them, her mother remains her greatest supporter. 

Who is Doria Ragland

Meghan is born to Doria and Thomas Markle Sr. The former actress' parents divorced when she was only six years old. Meghan is Doria's only child, and they lived together after the split.

With the royal wedding on the way and all of Meghan's family drama, the soon-to-be bride of Prince Harry still appears to maintain a close relationship with her mother. In August last year, Meghan told Glamour:

We can just have so much fun together, and yet I'll still find so much solace in her support.

Doria's adorable nickname for her daughter

On her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, where she shared details about her humanitarian work, Meghan revealed the sweet nickname her mother has for her. 

In a post titled "How to Be Both," the former Suits actress talked about how people constantly wondered about her ability to thrive in two contrasting worlds: "one in the entertainment industry, predicated on wealth and indulgence, and the other in humanitarian work."

She asked her mother this same question, to which Doria replied: 

I don’t know, Flower. You were just born that way. It’s just who you are.

Then, Meghan added:

And yes, she calls me, 'Flower'.

Doria will be at the wedding

It has been confirmed that not only will Thomas Markle Sr. give his daughter away at the royal wedding, but his ex-wife will also be there to share the moment with their daughter.

Good Morning America royal contributor, Omid Scobie, shared a tweet earlier announcing that Doria has arrived in England and is currently staying at Kensington Palace.

With only a few days to the wedding, we imagine her presence and support will be helpful to Meghan during this hectic time.
