Meghan Markle's mom spotted beaming in LA after it was confirmed that the duchess is pregnant
Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, has been spotted out in Los Angeles looking happier than ever after news of her daughter's pregnancy emerged online.
While returning to her home in LA, Doria was photographed looking a bit more smiley than usual on the day her daughter's pregnancy was announced.
What a stylish outfit! She must be so proud ❤️https://t.co/MWLxUK6qwN— OK! Magazine (@OK_Magazine) October 16, 2018
During her sighting, the 62-year-old was seen sporting a black shirt and polka dot pants, after she stepped out of her car carrying some items.

While Ragland is often seen with a timid and humble smile, she looked a bit more energetic while spotted out in LA on that particular day, which may be attributed to the good news that she is about to be a grandmother.
Meanwhile, her daughter was on the other side of the world going on a 16-day tour with Prince Harry, thrilling fans outside the Sydney Opera House for their first appearance to the public since they announced their pregnancy.

The couple spent more than the 20 minutes they allocated to greet the fans waiting for them in order to accommodate as many as possible. The expectant mother sported a beige trench coat over a dress made by Australian designer Karen Gee, as she made her way through the barricades while accepting cards and gifts from the doting crowd.
Outside the Opera House, Harry made sure to speak to a war widow, Daphne Dunne, 98, the longest, whom he stayed close to and even hugged as they chatted. This was not the first time they met, as Harry caught sight of his Victoria Cross medal during his visit to Australia in 2015.
A day after, Meghan was spotted sporting the late Princess Diana's jewelry in her next appearance, while touring Sydney with Prince Harry. The two are set to visit different parts of Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and Tonga during the tour, and are set to ensure Meghan's safe and happy pregnancy back in their palace in London once their tour has concluded.
