She may be the mother of the Duchess of Sussex, but it seems Doria Ragland hasn’t altered her life — or her shopping habits — too significantly.

The 62-year-old yoga instructor was spotted browsing the aisles of a Target store in Los Angeles on Saturday. (She’s in good company — Beyoncé was also recently spotted at the budget retailer.)

According to fellow shoppers, Ragland kept a low profile as she picked out items at the store known for its affordable home furnishings, beauty products and clothing.

An onlooker was astonished to see the future grandmother of the seventh in line to the British throne shopping at Target’s Baldwin Hills location.

Target is a middle-of-the-road store and everyone shops there,” the person told news agency SWNS. “But you don’t expect to see someone connected to the English royal family wandering down the aisles.”

The shopper added that Ragland has a “very distinctive look and I immediately recognized her.”

Meghan Markle’s mother is no stranger to Target, however; she was also seen picking up some essentials last May, just days after her daughter’s royal wedding. Ragland was the only member of Meghan’s family to attend the May 19 nuptials. The duchess has reportedly had no contact with her father, Thomas Markle, over the last several months, and she is also estranged from her half siblings, Thomas Markle Jr. and Samantha Markle.

Ragland will become a grandmother when Meghan gives birth to her and Harry’s first child in April.
