Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland is continuing to live with her and Prince Harry and is helping take care her grandson, according to US Weekly.
The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, are currently living in Tyler Perry’s exclusive Beverly Hills $18million (£14.5million) mansion with 14-month-old son Archie – which is a 24,545 square foot, eight-bedroom home known for its absolute privacy.
‘Doria Ragland continues to live with Meghan, Harry and Archie,’ a source claimed, speaking to Us Weekly. ‘This has been the most time she has spent with her grandson since he was born.
Doria, 63, is reportedly enjoying being on grandma duty, spending quality time with the 14-month-old, ‘get[ing] up in the morning and read[ing] to him,’ and helping Markle make his ‘all-organic’ baby food.

It comes after reports last month that Doria, a former social worker, is acting as an ‘unofficial nanny’ to Archie and to help the couple out as they find their feet in the United States.
A scroll back through Tyler Perry’s account gives a tantalising view of his eight-bedroom, 12-bathroom Tuscan-style villa, which sits on 22 acres on the top of a hill in the ultra-exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community, offering sweeping views of the city from the backyard.
Photos posted by the Meet The Browns star, show a home with a luxury sunken bath, high ceilings and a spacious kitchen with a marble island – not to mention a chic white and grey nursery originally designed for the tycoon’s son, Aman.
A source previously told Mail Online that Meghan wants to keep her mother close as she is ‘her rock’ and now ‘doesn’t trust many people’ outside of an immediate circle of family and friends.

It is believed Meghan Markle had the full support of her mother when she and Prince Harry quit as senior royals back in January.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex dropped the bombshell news that they were quitting, dividing their time between North America and the UK and would work to become financially independent, the royal family and the rest of the world were caught off guard.
However, Meghan reportedly had the backing of her Los Angeles-based mother, who ‘was really worried about Meghan… and is relieved that her daughter is putting her mental health and well being first,’ the insider said.
The friend added: ‘Doria is very much about being true to oneself and so of course she will continue to encourage Meghan to take the road less traveled.’
