Amid the turmoil of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's dramatic exit from Britain and the Royal Family, she has been an oasis of calm. Stoic and with an unwavering loyalty towards her daughter and son-in-law, Doria Ragland has emerged as a 'silent but steely' influence behind the couple's decision to seek financial independence in North America. The woman who instilled in her daughter from a young age the motto 'don't give the milk away for free’-- or don't do anything for nothing--has become close to Prince Harry. 'Harry in particular turns to her for advice,'

Judging from the Meg's behavior while he was gone, there is a good chance she will divorce him. If Harry doesn't screw up too much, I think he will be welcome back in the royal family. Now if they go on the talk show circuit and write books badmouthing the royals they will turn their backs on him. What a sorry mess.

Enough about this boring couple! Harry has proven himself to be weak and willing to be led by his bossy wife. I guess he takes after his great-great uncle, the Duke of Windsor.

Of course she did. Megan disclosed in some article - Brit Vogue? - that she and her mother have always believed “us against the world”. That is a formidable nut to crack. If I were a man, I’d run like a rabbit… Her father knows both of them. Her father knows.

She has to know if she divorce's him, the Royal family dosen't pay alimony. Maybe she figures if he is private citizen he would have to pay. Just ask Fergie about that,she got nothing. Prince Andrew felt sorry for her and let's her stay in his house rent free.

So, Meghan's mixed parentage is the reverse of what is usual. Yet, typical yet unsurprisingly, her parents are still split. The mother becomes the Matriarch and the father disappears, as is typical for that groups' culture. Now, Harry enters the picture. He and his sycophants are currently engaged in what is often-but-not-nearly-the-majority-of-the-time conversion from his majority-culture viewpoint of the world to Meghan and her mother's minority-culture viewpoint of the world. A la Dances with Wolves and Avatar, one of Hollywood's favorite themes. It never ceases to amaze me how the truly dysfunctional people of the majority culture puts their love and faith and hope in the Other as their salvation from -- who knows from what ails them? Will it all work out for Harry and his hangers-on? Possibly, especially if he gets to keep the British taxpayers' money he currently has as well as future taxpayer income transfers to him, as large sums of cash do seem to smooth out life's bumpy passages, but not probably, as countless examples among real people over many years have shown.

Doria convinced them to move to become independently wealthy. That cannot happen as long as Prince Charles pays them two million a year to live in NA. If he would have the nerve to cut them off and let Harry try to get a real job, they are not independent. Harry is not qualified to do anything. She was not a star before she married him. She married him to get her star status and to be accepted in the Hollywood elite crowd which she never was before. Who cares if they have dinner with the Clooney's. Bunch of wealthy Socialists!

Meghan’s father didn’t break away from his family. Her mother Doria got sick of his long hours at the studio, where he was fairly prominent in television production (a lighting director, he won a couple of Emmys) … He picked her up off the street and she ended up leaving him and leaving Meghan with him. He raised and educated Meghan. You don’t need to look further than Doria to see what went wrong with her marriage and with Meghan’s.

Unless I missed something in Doria's Story, It appears she is NOT independently wealthy. I would bet that Harry and Meghan have been supplementing her lifestyle. From the time they were married, Doria has appeared in very stylish clothes and matching accessories. I would bet Meghan has had a voice in why her mother needs to appear in public looking like a woman of Means! Meanwhile, Harry (and really, Charles) has been footing the very large Bill for Doria's wardrobe and travel expenses! If Charles, at some point, shuts off the Money Train to Harry I have a feeling Meghan will be gone in 24 hours! She's a Golddigger! She will move on to someone else who can hand her the Lifestyle she has become accustomed to! It's going to be hard to find someone who allows her to live in a Castle with servants, attending Royal Galas, having a wonderful Wardrobe paid for and private planes at her fingertips! Good luck with that, Meghan!

I am amused by the author's interpretation of giving away the milk. The correct statement is, a man will not buy the cow if the milk is free. The subject of that is premarital sex/marriage. I would guess that most of the women here at Lucianne heard that from Mom.

Re #17, Meghan paid for Doria’s college education. I believe Meghan has been supporting her mother for some time (how much can a yoga instructor make?). I can see Doria’s making sure that her income stream, via her daughter, not only continued but also increased with access to the Royal Family plus all the merchandising and promotional opportunities that that appeared to present. Wise Queen Elizabeth has cut her and her daughter off at the pass….

There are many reports that Doria was in the slammer during the 7 or 8 years Meghan lived w/her father... if true, we'll be hearing more abt this down the road. I suspect we're now seeing the real Harry that has been hidden from view from the time he was a child as he was presented to the world as a fun loving, down to earth guy.

So now it is effectively Doria Ragland against Queen Elizabeth. This article indicates that Harry took Doria’s advise over the advise of the Queen of England his grandmother, his father Charles the Prince of Wales, and his brother William the Duke of Cambridge who it appears all advised Harry to be prudent and not rush into marrying Meghan Markle, a very politically opinionated progressive California Democrat who her entire life as done what she wished and who comes from a family where divorce has been more the rule than the exception. Common sense will tell you that Meghan was incompatible from the get-go with the hundreds of years old Constitutional and Parliamentary British Monarchy that is bound to abide by tradition, and especially to be above politics, as the members of the Royal Family go about their personal, and Royal lives where the concept of duty to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth always comes first. A layman’s evaluation of all that is that Harry is suffering from an acute case of being pussy whipped after being rejected over the years by so many British girls. If divorce is in the cards in Meghan’s mind, look for Doria and Meghan to lure Harry into moving to California and to become a legal resident there. California is a “community property” State, where divorces decrees cause all assets of divorcees to be split right down the middle, potentially allowing a California court to order that half of Harry’s monetary assets to be handed over to Meghan. Harry would also become subject in California to pay huge child support payments for the next two decades. Would that be enough for Harry to reconsider the advise given to him be leading members of his family?

President Donald Trump's defense team consistently drilled down on one key point as it began opening arguments in his impeachment trial on Saturday: the evidence against Trump is limited, at best, and he can't be impeached because the public hasn't heard direct evidence of his misconduct from him or anyone close to him.(Snip)Republicans, meanwhile, say that if the evidence against Trump is as overwhelming as House Democrats say it is, the Senate doesn't need to call new witnesses. But on Saturday, Trump's lawyers seemed to bolster Democrats' case by repeatedly claiming that they hadn't heard from a single witness who had "direct contact" with the president.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Women in four key states – Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin—could decide who occupies the White House next year. And they may be turning away from President Donald Trump, according to a newly released poll. Yet, many women voters in these states remain undecided. And women at this point are a little less motivated than men to vote in November’s presidential election, according to the poll from Baldwin Wallace, Ohio Northern and Michigan’s Oakland universities. In the Great Lakes states, more women voters said they would support the Democratic Party’s yet unnamed candidate over Trump if the election were held today.

President Donald Trump has one more distinction he can add to an unprecedented White House tenure. The president has blown past individual Democratic presidential campaigns in fundraising for his 2020 reelection bid. But the crowded primary field together more than tripled his 2019 cash haul, according to a CNBC analysis of Federal Election Commission filings and campaign statements. No incumbent president this century has been so thoroughly outraised by a field of challengers in the year before a reelection contest. The main Republican challengers to President Barack Obama in 2012 barely took in more than the incumbent in 2011.

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.
