Meghan Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland recently sparked rumors that she’s engaged.
New Idea published a photo of Doria Ragland with a huge ring on her finger and assumed that the yoga instructor recently said yes to her mystery partner’s proposal.
However, even though Ragland was photographed with a ring on her finger, it’s highly likely that it’s just an accessory that she loves to wear and not an engagement ring.

Still, the tabloid insisted that this isn’t the case.
“Doria has a very active social life since Meghan’s been with Harry. She’s learned to keep her mouth shut about even things like her love life because she knows it will be splashed across the UK papers. She won’t comment on the ring, but she definitely seems very happy and settled so it wouldn’t surprise anyone if there was a special man in her life,” the source said.
The insider also said that if Ragland really agreed to get engaged, it’s highly likely that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle know her fiancé and support their relationship.
After all, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very protective of the latter’s mom.
Doria Ragland, Thomas Markle Sr’.s failed marriage
If Doria Ragland is engaged, this won’t, reportedly, be her first trip to the altar because she was previously married to Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr.
However, the couple divorced while Markle was still very young.
But regardless of what the tabloid says, Ragland isn’t engaged. In fact, there is no proof that she’s even dating someone right now.
Ragland has been a dedicated mom to Markle especially while the latter was being bombarded with criticisms after she married Prince Harry.
The yoga instructor is the only family member that Markle has a connection with right now. After all, the Suits alum has already cut ties with her dad after he sold photos of himself to Daily Mail ahead of her royal wedding.
Ragland currently lives in the United States. And there are reports that she will be staying with Prince Harry and Markle after the latter gives birth to her daughter in the summer.
