Meghan Markle's Mom Doria Ragland Breaks Silence on Ex Thomas Markle's Media Scandal

Meghan Markle‘s mother Doria Ragland is opening up to the public for the first time in the new Netflix docu-series Harry & Meghan.

The first three episodes of the series are now streaming and Doria addresses her ex-husband Thomas Markle‘s media scandal that happened in the days surrounding Meghan‘s wedding to Prince Harry.

If you don’t remember, it was discovered that Thomas had staged paparazzi photos and he later ended up in the hospital and didn’t attend the wedding.

H and I called my dad. I said, ‘They’re saying you’re taking money from the tabloids to stage photos. Is this true?’ He says, ‘No,’” Meghan said in the docu-series. “And on that call, I’d said to him, ‘Look. If they can’t stop this story, then it’s going to come out tomorrow so why don’t we send someone right now to your house to get you out of there now because if that’s the case, your house will be swarmed by media. We’ll get you out.’”

“And he said, ‘No. I have things I need to do.’ And it felt really cagey. I was like, ‘It doesn’t make sense.’ And when we hung up, I looked at H. I was like, ‘I don’t know why but I don’t believe him,’” she added.

Harry added, “It’s amazing what people would do when offered a huge amount of money. Fifty thousand, a hundred thousand, to hand over photographs, to create a story. And thank God most of them said no.”

Doria said she “was absolutely stunned that Tom would become a part of this circus. I felt sad that the media would run with this. That he would capitalize, certainly as a parent that’s not what you do. That’s not parenting.”

Check out the biggest bombshells that were revealed in the docu-series.
