Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie Harrison is not even old enough to walk yet but apparently, he’s already learning a few baby yoga moves from his grandmother, Doria Ragland. During her time at Frogmore Cottage, Ragland reportedly made the most of her time by teaching her new grandson yoga. Ragland, who lives full-time in Los Angeles, is certified in baby yoga.
According to Vogue Magazine, Ragland spent the first few weeks at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give them a helping hand with their newborn son. Sources close to the royal couple say that Ragland was “indispensable” during her time there and that Markle in particularly loved having her mom close.

Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl says that Ragland got to check out Markle’s new mother-and-baby yoga room at Frogmore Cottage. It was reportedly built with a floating floor and completed during the extensive Frogmore Cottage renovation work. She told Vanity Fair in an interview, “Meghan, who is nursing, has relied on her mother, who helped cook nourishing meals for the family and trained in baby yoga before arriving in the UK.”
Doria Ragland has since left the Sussexes behind and is now back in Los Angeles, where she works as a full-time social worker and yoga instructor. But with that said, sources close to Kensington Palace believe that Ragland will be back sooner rather, even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumored to visit the United States sometime soon. Also, there’s a trip to Africa that is currently in the pipeline for them.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that Meghan Markle will be on maternity leave until at least the end of the summer. She currently has a few royal engagements and public appearances penciled in for October and later this year. However, there’s a strong possibility that Markle will be on hand for this year’s Trooping the Colour event, which will take place in June. The festivities are part of Queen Elizabeth’s annual birthday celebrations. Even though Markle herself hasn’t confirmed that she will be there, many royal fans pointed out that her sister-in-law Kate Middleton attended last year’s event following the birth of her son Prince Louis in April.
