Meghan Markle may have married into the royal family and on the cusp of motherhood, ready to look after her own bub – but it doesn’t mean her mum Doria Ragland won’t be by her side.

The Duchess of Sussex’s mother is said to have come to her daughter’s defence after reported surfaced that her ex-husband and American actor Trevor Engelson had plans to launch a TV comedy based on their failed marriage.

According to British newspaper The Sun, “Doria Ragland, who is currently preparing to head to Windsor for the imminent arrival of Baby Sussex, was previously dispatched by the Duchess of Sussex to confront her ex-husband Trevor Engelson about his plans to launch a TV comedy based on the couple’s failed marriage.”

The comedy sparked a lot of conversations, with the executive producer of hit TV show Modern Family working on it with Trevor via Fox Studios.

It was expected that fans would follow the story which saw the ex-husband of a British princess struggle with having to share custody of their (fictitious) child with a princess in England.

The storyline had obvious comparisons to Meghan and Prince Harry’s public marriage,  therefore The Duchess heavily opposed the comedy, particularly as it planned to make fun of the royal romance on a weekly basis.

The Sun suggests Meghan’s mother “is believed to have maintained a friendly relationship with Trevor – and her intervention seems to have worked. He ended up agreeing to drop the comedy altogether.”

Meghan and Trevor began dating in 2004 and tied the knot in 2011. He was a producer on her famous legal drama Suits.

The Duchess is yet to make any formal announcement about the TV show.
