Meghan Markle is celebrating Mother’s Day as a mom for the first time following the recent birth of her first child with Prince Harry, Archie Harrison.
According to People, the Duchess of Sussex is spending Mother’s Day at the couple’s new home in Frogmore Cottage alongside Harry and mom Doria Ragland.
Ragland reportedly flew to London from her home in Los Angeles prior to Easter in order to help her daughter prepare for Archie’s arrival, and is remaining to assist Duchess Meghan in her first days as a new mother.
“She’s super excited,” a source tells People of Ragland. “She and Meghan are so close.”
Added another source: “Harry really gets on well with her too. Any new mom wants her own mom around at this time, so it’s great.”
On Sunday, the @SussexRoyal Instagram account shared a special Mother’s Day greeting on Instagram along with an adorable photo of baby Archie:
