It’s War: Duchess Meghan’s Mom vs. the Queen!


Star (USA) - - BUZZ -

Do­ria Ragland is about to square off against Eng­land’s ma­tri­arch…

EVER since Duchess Meghan wed Prince Harry on May 19, the former ac­tress has been busy mod­ern­iz­ing the monar­chy — much to the ire of Queen El­iz­a­beth II. Sources dish that in her lat­est move ruf­fling Her Majesty’s feath­ers, the preg­nant princess de­manded the palace make way for her mother, Do­ria Ragland, to help the happy cou­ple raise the new­est royal. But in­sid­ers say the queen laid down an­other set of ex­haus­tive edicts — and Do­ria is ready to fight back! A whis­tle-blower in Buck­ing­ham Palace tells Star a row first sparked when the former yoga in­struc­tor, 62, was told she couldn’t em­brace her daugh­ter, 37, be­cause roy­als aren’t al­lowed to show PDA. “Do­ria made it clear that no one was go­ing to stop her from hug­ging her own daugh­ter, not even the leader of the monar­chy. She finds all these strict rules op­pres­sive, but this one was the tip of the ice­berg,” re­veals the palace in­sider, adding that the war has only just be­gun!

QUEEN OF MEAN Meghan has been met with an on­slaught of crit­i­cism from the 92-year-old monarch ever since she be­gan dat­ing Harry, 34, in 2016. No mat­ter how hard the former Suits star and di­vor­cée tried to fit in, there seemed to be no pleas­ing her grand­mother-in-law. And palace moles whis­per that Do­ria was dumb­founded when she learned of the clois­tered life Meghan is be­ing forced to lead — and can’t bear to fol­low suit! While the queen has re­port­edly in­vited Do­ria for Christ­mas, sources say she doesn’t want to fol­low palace pro­ce­dures. “There’s no eat­ing at the ta­ble once Her Majesty fin­ishes, and no shell­fish on the menu be­cause it can cause food poi­son­ing,” dishes the royal re­porter, adding that Meghan’s mother can’t make head or tail of the bizarre be­hav­ior. “She can’t even play her fa­vorite board game, Monopoly, and no one can tell her why!” groans our source. “It’s just an­other one of those rules that make no sense. Do­ria also can’t take self­ies with Meghan; they’re for­bid­den.” And while sources say that Harry, has “as­sured his new mother-in-law she’d get used to the way things are done,” pals in­sist that Do­ria won’t back down…

PALACE PAN­DE­MO­NIUM Ten­sions are sure to reach an all-time high with a new baby on the hori­zon, es­pe­cially since Harry and Meghan will re­port­edly swap their two-bed­room pad at Kens­ing­ton Palace for Frog­more Cot­tage, a Grade II-listed 10-bed­room home near Wind­sor Cas­tle — with enough room for Do­ria! “Meghan is de­mand­ing an ex­tra room be built for her mother at Frog­more House, which the queen finds os­ten­ta­tious,” says Star’s source. And while Meghan and Harry are sure to get their way, sources say Her Majesty will have the last laugh. “The queen doesn’t like the grip Do­ria has on Harry and Meghan,” says our source, adding that she’s ready to go toe to toe with Meghan’s mom upon move-in — de­spite palace reps deny­ing Star’s story. “After all, there’s no love lost be­tween Do­ria and the queen.”
