Harry and Meghan ‘called in’ Meghan’s mum to help with Archie during lockdown

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are said to have "called in" Meghan's mum Doria Ragland to help them with baby Archie during lockdown.

Doria stayed with the Duke and Duchess at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor for a period shortly after the birth of Archie.

A Sussex insider revealed that the couple also had Doria move into their home in California during the first coronavirus lockdown, in what represents the "most time she has spent with her grandson".

A friend of Meghan's told reporters that Doria had been "really worried about Meghan" and was encouraging her to put her mental health first.

The pal said: "Doria is very much about being true to oneself and so of course she will continue to encourage Meghan to take the road less travelled.”

There are concerns about her husband as well.

Talking on the ROYALS podcast, royal watcher Angela Mollard said she believed that Harry has "no sense of purpose" and no "stabilising" family influence during the lockdown period.

She said: "I really worry about Harry, he is someone who is very connected to his family, it is all he has ever known.

"He had his life with his mum and his dad and then he had his life with his mum and dad separately then he lost his mum and so he was with his dad and Prince William."

Although Meghan's mother got to spend time with Archie as he was growing up and subsequently Lilibet, the same cannot be said for Harry's family who have not seen the children since the couple moved stateside in 2020.

That will all change in a a couple of weeks however, as the Sussexes are expected to attend the Platinum Jubilee alongside their children – giving the Royal Family the opportunity for them to meet young Lilibet for the first time, following her birth last year.

A spokesperson for the couple recently said: "Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”
