It was no royal holiday for Doria Ragland.

Meghan Markle’s mom spent a lonely Christmas at home, an ocean away from her daughter, the Duchess of Sussex, and her new family. Instead, discover how Ragland spent her subdued holiday in this RadarOnline.com gallery.

There were reports that Ragland would travel to the UK to be with her pregnant daughter, but it seems she chose to stay at home instead.

Parents-to-be Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, joined Prince William 36, wife Kate Middleton, 36, and Queen Elizabeth II, 92, and Prince Philip, 97, at Sandringham to celebrate Christmas together.

But Ragland’s absence may not exactly be a royal snub. Royal insiders say that is very uncommon for outsiders to join the Queen for the holidays, and if Ragland were to join, they would be making yet another exception for Markle.

So instead, it was a quiet holiday at home.

But not everyone was pleased with the decision. Kate Middleton’s mother Carol Middleton reportedly felt snubbed.
