The Duchess of Sussex was born to Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle back in 1981, two years after the now-divorced couple said "I do." The California resident, who has worked as a yoga teacher and social worker, crossed the pond to attend her only child's wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19, and watched with teary eyes as Prince Charles walked her daughter down the aisle. The 62-year-old has supported Meghan through her Hollywood career and now in her royal role, and was on hand to help launch her first solo charity project, Together: Our Community Cookbook, on Sept. 20.
With rumours that Doria may be moving to London to be closer to her daughter (perhaps in time to help welcome Baby Sussex!), catch up on everything there is to know about Meghan's mom.
