MEG-A HELP Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s in-house ‘marriage counsellor’ who they turn to after arguments, insider claims

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are said to have an “in-house marriage counsellor” who they can trust if they need advice.

Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland has reportedly moved into the guesthouse of their £11.4million mansion in California and is proving to be a big hit.

A source told Closer: “Harry always jokes that Doria’s their ‘in-house guru’ but it’s not far off.

“Any time they’re having trouble making a decision or arguing about something, she’s the first person they turn to.”

Yoga instructor Doria was the only member of Meghan’s family to attend her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

Meghan is currently estranged from her lighting director dad, Thomas Markle.

While it was initially announced that Thomas would walk his daughter down the aisle when she married Prince Harry, he pulled out after he had a heart attack and had to undergo surgery..

After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from royal duties in 2020 and relocated to Santa Barbara, they were closer to LA-based Doria – but she was still a couple of hours away.

It’s recently been claimed that she has now taken up residence in their guesthouse to be closer to the couple, and their kids, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two.

The source added: “Doria is so much more than a mother-in-law. Harry looks to her for advice and support whenever he’s struggling.

“If he’s had a disagreement with Meghan, instead of wading in head-on, he’ll ask Doria for her take on it first.”

Doria is said to be good at being “neutral” and a “mediator” and while most people would be hesitant about living with their mum-in-law, she is proving to be a “marriage counsellor and loving granny all rolled into one.”

The support is no doubt welcome with Prince Harry, who lost his own mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.

He’s since had strained relationships with his dad King Charles, and brother Prince William, which he detailed in his bombshell Spare memoir.

Last month, relations between Charles and Harry were said to be fractured beyond repair amid the fallout of the royal race row, where a family member was said to have raised “concerns” about their baby Archie’s skin colour.

Hopes of a reconciliation had been raised after Harry called Charles to wish him a happy 75th birthday in November 2023 and sent a video of the King’s US-based grandkids.

But the family rift, years in the making now, appears not to be easing with time.

King Charles is said to have been left deeply hurt by Harry’s actions, according to royal expert Robert Hardman’s new biography: ‘Charles III: New King, New Court. The Inside Story’.

While the King reportedly feels “exasperated” by Harry, he is too preoccupied with Royal duties to dwell on it, according to a friend.

Of Harry’s relationship with his father, Hardman claims a pal said: “Of course the King is extremely sad about Harry and Meghan but there is a sense of exasperation, that he has done what he can and now he is King, there are many more things to think about.”

The new book, serialised in the Daily Mail – offers a number of illuminating insights into the thoughts and feelings of senior members of the Royal family.

The book claimed The King needed to have “discreet discussions” with William before being expected to “console the whole country”.

Author Hardman claims one of the new monarch’s first decisions was to sit down with his eldest son hours after Queen Elizabeth passed away.

He wrote that in previous years, Harry would have also been involved with tensions high, so it was decided it was for the best he sat out the conversation.

It claims neither King Charles or William have read Prince Harry’s explosive autobiography Spare, but they’ve been briefed on key points.

Prince William is understood to be “mortified” by Harry’s “casual betrayal” of shared secrets in the explosive memoir.

And in Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary series Harry claimed Royal men marry look to marry someone who “would fit the mould”.

Prince William, interpreting him as referring to his wife Kate, slammed the statement as the “lowest of the low”, according to Hardman’s book.
