The Daily Mail is reporting that Ragland was spotted at Oprah's California home this week, with The Mirror revealing that "the pair met for six hours" and "thrashed out ideas for the interview."
If the publications are right, and Oprah conducts a tell-all interview with Markle's mom, then fans of the royal family from all over the world are likely to tune in.
An alleged source in the TV industry tells The Mirror:
"Oprah and Doria spent a long time chatting and they got on really well. The most important and significant issue they spoke about was race and how badly some people had reacted to Meghan and Harry... It's an issue close to both Doria and Oprah, who have both suffered racism. If the interview happens it will be groundbreaking, it just needs the green light from Meghan, Prince Harry and the Palace."
Prince Harry's relationship with Markle was marred with racism, especially early in their courtship, with the royal even issuing a statement about the issue in Nov. 2016. While members of the royal family don't usually comment on personal matters, Prince Harry was forced to issue the statement regarding his girlfriend's safety, as Markle was "subject to a wave of abuse and harassment," which he wanted to bring a stop to.
As The Mirror notes, "The explosive chat will go ahead if Buckingham Palace gives the green light." But it's clear that if the interview does happen, then Markle's mother will soon be a household name.
