The joy of a mother Doria Ragland #royalwedding2018

One of the most amazing moment in the royal wedding was watching the mother of the bride Doria Ragland.  She seemed to be carrying inside her  inner peace and joy. In a room filled with royalty and celebrities she .looked so humble, but like a little star she was radiating so much joy and happiness,  with a twinkle in her eyes. I guess sitting their alone, she was ok, avoiding all distractions and being in the moment enjoying  her daughter getting married.

 

As a single parent, I could relate, I was in tears as I looked at her  and  imagined the thoughts that where going through her head, the challenges that they must have had in life and  she sitting their wondering if she was dreaming that her wonderful child she carried for 9 months was about to marry her Prince.

What an amazing mother – Doria Ragland – Such a powerful message; standing solidly unshaken alone in an unfamiliar world, with grace, composure and absolute pride. She held her own and carried herself like a Queenl

    What a lovely post! I completely agree, Doria too stole my heart that day. I agree! She is such a quietly strong woman. I think it was incredibly brave of her to sit by herself as the only representative of Meghan’s family that day. Though Meghan’s as an emblem of modernity in terms of race, the fact that she is an American, an actress and a divorcee, is very groundbreaking, I can’t help but feel that having her mother play such an important role in the ceremony also speaks to so many single-parent families. I know that her father was unable to attend because of health problems and not due to the fact that he is an absentee father, but it was really nice to see Meghan have her mother act as the substitute father of the bride when Doria accompanied her to the church. In years to come, Doria will signify that a mother can be just as important in a marriage ceremony as a father.
