After marrying Prince Harry, Meghan Markle is now a powerful figure with a voice that can draw the world's attention to any humanitarian or charitable cause she chooses, but many in Meghan's family aren't so lucky!
RadarOnline.com exclusively learned that Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, 61, is "miserable" after being silenced by the Royal family.
"Doria can’t eat, speak or otherwise open her mouth about Meghan unless she clears it with the Royal family," a source close to the new Duchess of Sussex explains to Radar. "They’ve silenced her and made her sign a non-disclosure agreement."
Doria's close friends back home in Los Angeles watched the spectacle on television. Some anxiously tried getting her to give them details about the lavish ceremony as they were excited to know more about Meghan's special day but it was to no avail.
"Her friends are asking how the wedding was, how the food was, asking how happy Meghan is and all Doria did was shrug her shoulders. She didn't say a word. It’s so sad. The poor lady looks and feels miserable."
There was a lot of misery surrounding this wedding. As Radar previously reported, just days before tying the knot, Meghan's father Thomas Markle contacted her on at least two separate occasions asking for some cold hard cash.
“Meghan refused,” another source told Radar exclusively. “She didn’t give a reason as to why not, she just said no.”
