Meghan Markle’s ‘sweet’ mum Doria Ragland brought Royal Wedding dress designers SNACKS
MEGHAN Markle’s mother Doria Ragland lovingly bought the designers of her dress for the Royal Wedding snacks during her fitting with them, it has been revealed.
During her daughter’s wedding in May, Ms Ragland wore an Oscar de la Renta pastel green dress with a matching hat.
She had arrived at the ceremony in a carriage with Meghan.
The mother of the bride then walked the future Royal to the entry of St George’s chapel.
Now, several months after the wedding, the dress’ designers have come forward to discuss the experience they had while working with the Duchess’ mother.
Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia explained how Ms Ragland was “sweet” and brought them snacks for the fitting.
Mr Garcia, while speaking with Buro Middle East, explained how they were chosen for the job.
He said: “Meghan Markle’s assistant sent us an email one night and said she would like to speak to you guys about something.
“She wanted to have an American designer represented in the Royal Wedding because she’s American.
We flew to LA to meet Doria and she brought us snacks to the fitting.
“And then we flew to LA to meet Doria and she brought us snacks to the fitting.”
Ms Kim added: “She’s so sweet.
“Her snacks were so cute too.”
Mr Garcia then elaborated a little about the types of snacks that she brought.
He said: “They were healthy snacks because she’s a runner.”
Ms Kim added: “Yeah it wasn’t, like, cookies, it was very thought out.”
While the designers did not say what types of snacks she specifically brought, some are speculating they could have been carrot sticks with hummus or almonds or some sort of mixed nut trail mix due to the “healthy” nature of Ms Ragland.
Following the wedding, the co-creative directors explained that they felt extremely stressed and excited on the day of the wedding.
Mr Garcia said: “There was this eerie sense of unity.
‘When you’re in New York and you’re watching the Oscars you think okay some people in the world are watching this, but you really let the world was watching this and that sort of amount of pressure was on.
“We didn’t know if something had happened, if something had pilled on the outfit, you don’t even know that it’s going to actually happen and when it came out it was quite exciting.”
Since the wedding, the two designers have seen an increase in business and not only because of the dress that Ms Ragland wore.
Meghan wore an Oscar de la Renta princess gown during her tour in Australia.
She also wore a wrap dress from the same designer to Celia’s wedding.
