This is lovely.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, with their baby news dominating the headlines these past few months, with speculation mounting over baby names, God parents, nursery decor and nanny choices.

In fact, the couple are watched so intently that it is virtually impossible for them to do anything under the radar, with Meghan Markle’s surprise intimate baby shower in New York becoming one of the most talked about events of the year.

The world was surprised therefore when it emerged this week that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had been secretly visiting a different country multiple times since going public with their relationship.

Yes, really.

Where have the Duke and Duchess been jetting off to? Los Angeles, where according to The Sun, the couple have been visiting Meghan Markle’s mum, Doria Ragland.

‘Meghan is a mummy’s girl — their special mother-daughter bond hasn’t disappeared just because she’s moved to England,’ one of Doria’s neighbours reportedly told The Sun before explaining that the couple had been to visit in secret. ‘Meghan will always come back to Doria, this will always be her home.’

The source continued: ‘They are forever in touch, and Meghan has been here to stay on more than one occasion since going public with Harry. I even saw him here once, but it’s not my place to say any more.’

It won’t be necessary for long though with Doria reportedly set to move in with the couple after the royal baby is born.
