She 's known about her daughter's engagement for 'several weeks,' but Meghan Markle ' s mother Doria Ragland spent the weekend preparing for the announcement in a decidedly low-key fashion.

'Doria is no longer working at the mental health clinic in the Los Angeles area. It was Doria’s decision to leave,' a source told the outlet. 'She has talked about starting her own private practice, focusing on working with elderly patients.'

Meghan opened up about her mother and her work with the elderly in an essay published by Glamour last August.

'My mom's a yoga instructor, but she does social work, as well, and she works specifically with the geriatric community,' she wrote.

'For me to watch this level of life-long sensitivity to nurturing and caregiving, but at the same time my mom has always been a free spirit. She's got dread locks and a nose ring. She just ran the LA Marathon.

'We can just have so much fun together, and yet, I'll still find so much solace in her support,' she added. 'That duality coexists the same way it would in a best friend.'
