The royal family banned Meghan Markle and her mother from having coffee


How isolating and restrictive was Meghan Markle’s life as Duchess in the UK? Royal journalist Omid Scobie, days after Meghan’s big interview with Oprah, has shared new details about how little she was allowed to do when she was a senior member of the Royal Family in England.

Meghan spoke to Oprah about not being allowed to leave the palace, even when she wanted treatment because she was struggling with suicidal thoughts. The firm gave her everything that would allow her to move freely in the world upon her marriage: “You couldn’t just go,” she said. “I mean you have to understand too, when I joined this family was the last time, until we came here [to North America], that I saw my passport, my driving license, my keys. It all returned. “

Scobie added in a recent editorial for Harper’s Bazaar that Meghan was unable to go out for coffee with her mom Doria Ragland – or even get her mom out for her. And that concerned Ragland, of course.

Scobie wrote: “A lunch with friends might have cheered her up momentarily, but social outings were rejected by royals and aides who said it would be better to lie. Her image was” everywhere right now, “they told her. The existence stood out especially for her worried mother, Doria Ragland, who, during a summer 2019 visit to Frogmore Cottage, was surprised to find that neither she nor her daughter were able to travel to the city of Windsor to buy coffees here, “Doria told Meghan at the time, according to a source.”

Meghan and Harry, of course, have regained their freedom after stepping down as royals last year. They now live in Montecito, California and enjoy much more privacy and independence.
