Doria Ragland has flown across the pond from Los Angeles to London as Meghan Markle‘s due date grows closer by the minute, multiple outlets report.
Kensington Palace shared in a statement in October that Ragland “is very happy about this lovely news, and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”
The question remains when Meghan will give birth, but Kensington Palace said in October as part of her pregnancy announcement that the Duchess of Sussex was due “in the Spring of 2019.”
The former Suits star shared a few more specifics in January when she and her husband Prince Harry were on a walkabout in Merseyside. She said at the time that she was about six months pregnant, which put her due date towards the end of April and early May.
We’re getting there!
The U.K. has been immersed with royal baby fever ever since the October announcement that was made during their royal tour in Australia and the South Pacific.
Kensington Palace explained their decision to keep this information close to home in a statement a few weeks ago.
That means there may not be the same type of debut and photo-op that we saw with the birth of Prince William and Kate’s three kids and prior royals. This decision to do so has reportedly upset a handful of Britons.
The Queen’s statement added that it was a “long-planned move.”
Additionally, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently changed households from Kensington Palace to the more spacious Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. They moved into Frogmore earlier in the month and there’s the possibility that Meghan will give birth at one of the more local hospitals in the area.
Until then, we’ll be eagerly awaiting this royal baby!
