Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland is set to get her own place in the UK so she can spend more time with her daughter, sources say.
Doria, 62, made a surprise appearance at Kensington Palace on Thursday to support Meghan, 37, at the launch of her new charity cookbook, and is believed to have made ‘several private visits’ to the UK since the royal wedding.
The yoga instructor, who is based in LA, is now understood to be considering spending part of the year in England, particularly if ‘grandchildren come along’.
She and Meghan are said to ‘speak on the phone pretty much every day’, in stark contrast to Thomas Markle’s strained relationship with his daughter.

‘Doria is very close to her daughter, and she has made several secret trips to England,’ the insider said.
‘They speak on the phone pretty much every day and they are talking about Doria getting a place in the UK so that she can spend part of the year over here.’
Doria currently lives in LA, where Meghan grew up as a child, and is not believed to be considering a permanent move to the UK.

The source added: ‘I think the idea is that Doria will have a pied-à-terre here so that she has her own space. She wants the ability to be here more often, especially if grandchildren come along.’
The Duchess of Sussex’s mother was spotted returning to LA on Friday, just a day after appearing at a Kensington Palace reception celebrating the launch of Together: Our Community Cookbook.
Meghan’s mother looked chic in an all-camel ensemble as she attended the event with both her daughter and Prince Harry.
She wore a co-ordianting jumper and cropped trousers, which she accessorised with a Pashmina draped around her shoulders and a pair of £340 ($445) Stuart Weitzman heels.

She also embraced each of the women with a warm hug, telling them: ‘It’s amazing. I’m just as excited as you are.’
Speaking of her daughter’s experience at the kitchen, she added: ‘She felt very much at home.’
The reception on Thursday was the first time that Doria and Meghan have been seen together in public since the royal wedding in May.
