According to The Mirror, Ragland met with Oprah Winfrey at her California home last week, where they reportedly “thrashed out” ideas for the interview.
"Oprah and Doria spent a long time chatting and they got on really well," a source told The Mirror. "The most important and significant issue they spoke about was race and how badly some people had reacted to Meghan and Harry.
“What happened to Meghan and Harry was disgusting and they and all of their families were horrified. It’s an issue close to both Doria and Oprah, who have both suffered racism.
The unprecedented interview will require the green light from Buckingham Palace to go ahead.
There is no word on when the interview might air, but we’re guessing it won’t be before Meghan and Prince Harry say ‘I do’ on May 19.
When the pair do tie the knot they will become the first mixed-race couple of the British Royal Family.
The news comes after the palace confirmed that both of Meghan’s parents will be present at the wedding and that her father, Thomas Markle will walk her down the aisle.
“Ms Markle feels it’s very important to her that both her parents are part of the day,” Prince Harry’s communications secretary Jason Knauf said.
“(She) is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion.”
While Harry has met his future mother-in-law it will be the first time he is meeting his future father-in-law.
