After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their daughter Lili, the Duchess of Sussex's mother Doria Ragland has reportedly moved in to help the couple.

The pair, who were congratulated by Prince William and Kate Middleton, are said to have been joined by Doria in their California home.

According to Page Six, Doria, 64, is "overjoyed to welcome her new granddaughter".

The publication said that although she wasn't present at the birth, she is now believed to be helping out with the newborn at the couple's $14.5million home in Montecito.


The yoga teacher previously flew out to the UK for the arrival of her first grandchild Archie's birth back in May 2019.

She spent a few weeks with Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, ahead of the arrival and stayed back to help out once he was born.

The Duke and Duchess announced Lili's arrival on 6 June and shared the news on their Archwell website.

Meghan welcomed Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on Friday 4 June at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, at 11.40am, weighing 7lb 11oz.

She and Harry chose the name Lilibet in honour of the affectionate family nickname of her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, as correctly predicted by Ok! magazine last week.

Meanwhile the middle name of Diana was selected to honour her beloved late grandmother, Princess Diana.

A message from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their Archewell website, read: "On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.

"She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe.

"Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."

Meghan and baby Lili are said to be "healthy and well" and are "settling in at home" at their house in Montecito, Santa Barbara.

A statement from their press secretary read: "It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world.

"Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home."
