Despite all the difficulties in Meghan's relationship with her dad, her mom seems to be willing to do both parents' job alone! Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, has tried a lot of jobs in her life so far: she's been a makeup artist, businesswoman, social worker, and yoga instructor. By the way, yoga was something she has been teaching Meghan since childhood.
Doria has always been there for her daughter from day one. Without any help from Meghan's father, she managed to side with the royal family. If you remember Meghan and Harry's wedding, it was clear that Doria was able to establish a great connection with Prince Charles and his wife.
Doria was also present at such an important event as the presentation of the cookbook Together, which Meghan launched at Kensington Palace along with the victims of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in London.
Such support made it clear that Doria will be there beside Meghan at every important stage of her life, including preparation for labor. She arrived in London in advance to help Meghan prepare. After the labor, Doria stayed with Meghan and the baby so they needed no nannies, because the only person Meghan can trust with Archie wholeheartedly is her own mother. Harry has to leave because of work, but Grandma Doria is always around!
Another fact that shows Doria's importance and influence on the baby's upbringing is that she is present in the official picture of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip meeting Meghan and Harry's son.
According to the royal expert, Meghan and Harry really have neither a nanny nor a chef. Doria is of great help; she's irreplaceable.
Although she has her own practice, dogs, and a lot of other things left in the USA, for the time being she is ready to be torn between two countries to help her daughter at the most challenging stage of motherhood. Kudos, she is worthy of "the best grandma of the year" award!
