Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle's mother, arrived at the Heathrow airport and was helped by a couple of aides sent by Queen Elizabeth II.


The 61-year-old landed on London's airport on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, three days before her daughter's wedding, which will take place on Saturday at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The social worker will have the honor of meeting the Queen, as well as the rest of the Royal Family, before witnessing her daughter marry Prince Harry, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Ragland received the royal treatment as soon as she got out of the airplane. There was a Jaguar, which is part of the royal fleet, waiting for her outside, as well as a police escort.

Meghan's personal assistant, Amy Pickerill welcomed Ragland with an immigration officer, who promptly stamped her passport while her bags were being placed in the trunk of the car that transported her to Windsor Suite.


It is yet to be revealed whether she stayed at the Cliveden House, the famous hotel where she will spend the night before the wedding with her daughter. So far, Ragland will be Meghan's only relative to attend the ceremony.

Thomas Markle Sr., her father, was supposed to walk her down the aisle on Saturday, but due to his precarious health problems and the scandal involving some staged photographs, he won't be present.


Samantha Grant, Meghan's half-sister, recently came to public to admit that she was the mastermind behind the plan and that they only had Markle Sr. pose for the photos for the Royal Family's benefit.

Grant also made the news due to the car crash that she was involved in. On Wednesday, Samantha was approached by a group of paparazzi near a tollbooth. Her boyfriend, who is yet to be named, quickly tried to avoid them.

By doing so, he hit a concrete barrier and Grant was slammed against the windshield. She fell hard on the floor mat and injured her ankle in the process.
