From her impeccable pistachio-green Oscar de la Renta ensemble, to her calm demeanour as she sat alone on a pew at the front of the church, Doria was singularly impressive.

And Twitter has fallen over itself to pay tribute to the woman who virtually singlehandedly raised Meghan.

Many found the sight of Doria sitting alone, and often tearful, deeply moving.

As she quietly supported her daughter through one of the most momentous events of the century, Doria amassed a legion of new fans.

From wondering what kind of water she drinks, to setting her up to become besties with Oprah – the world has become obsessed with Doria.
