Not every person concurs with the Duchess of Sussex's decision to step back from her regal obligations. However, her mother, Doria Ragland, will consistently have her back. 


"Doria 100 percent supports Meghan's decision to leave the royal family," a source told Closer Weekly recently. The source added that Doria is no longer happy to see her daughter disturbed in the United Kingdom.

Doria also wants Meghan to be happy. When her royal duties were finished, Meghan called her mother to tell her how she got on.

Last January, another source revealed to Closer Weekly that Doria was aware her daughter's life in London had been miserable. Regardless of whether it implies conflicting with royal rules, Doria wants what's best for her daughter.

So the first time grandmother seems to be overjoyed when Meghan decides to split her time between Canada and the United Kingdom. Doria just wanted to spend more time with her family.

And she'll finally get her opportunity when Meghan and her husband Prince Harry bring their son Archie to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, an insider told PEOPLE that Meghan surely gets a lot of her strength from her mother.

Harry and Meghan have clarified that they would prefer not to be dependent on public funds in their new lives.

On January 8, Meghan and Harry made headlines when they declared they would be stepping back as senior members of the royal family. Doria has been a significant source of support ever since.

According to a source, the social worker said Meghan is strong and will consistently be alright. As reported by US Weekly, on January 13, Queen Elizabeth II confirmed that Meghan and Harry would never again be using their HRH royal titles.

The 93-year-old monarch also shared that the couple, who tied the knot in May 2018, would be spending more time in Canada. Harry and Meghan have clarified that they would prefer not to be dependent on public funds in their new lives, Her Majesty said in a statement.

"It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK," she added.

A source previously told US Weekly that Meghan feels "free" after their royal exit. The former actress has never been more joyful.

As reported by Daily Mail, Harry and Meghan spent their first Christmas with Archie in a $14.1 million waterfront mansion.
