Meghan Markle and her mum Doria Ragland were reportedly banned by the Royal Family from going out to get coffee during her UK visit in summer 2019.

It's been claimed that in the course of their time at Frogmore Cottage, 39 year old Meghan and her mum, 64, were not allowed to go into Windsor to buy coffee for themselves.

A source reportedly told Omid Scobie, who wrote in Harper's Bazaar, that Doria told her daughter at the time: "You're stuck here."

Meghan's representative has declined to comment on the matter to OK! online. The Queen's representative has also been approached for further comment.
