Archie Harrison might only be a few weeks old, but it looks like he’s already doing yoga with his grandmother, Doria Ragland! Doria was on hand to help out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for a few weeks after her daughter gave birth to the royal tot back on May 6th. And apparently, she wasted no time in teaching the newborn a few baby yoga moves.
Vanity Fair’s royal correspondent Katie Nicholl says that Doria is actually trained in baby yoga. She’s a yoga enthusiast who has gotten both her daughter Meghan and Prince Harry to do sessions with her each time she’s visited London. And now it looks like little Archie is already following in his mother and grandmother’s footsteps, despite the fact that he can’t even walk yet!
“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 was a huge help for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as the royal couple has decided not to hire a nanny for Archie right now. That’s because they prefer to be hands-on parents who will do everything on their own. As a matter of fact, the Sussexes have decided not to get a nanny until Meghan is ready to go back to work. She is currently on her maternity leave and is expected to stay home with Archie throughout the summer.
“There is no chef, no valets, just them which is how they want it to be. Of course, they will have help in time, but they don’t want to be surrounded by staff at the moment.”
One source even said that Doria Ragland was “indispensable” in her help while she was staying at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. So far there is no indication as to when Doria will be back in town, although we have a feeling that she will be back sooner rather than later!
Meghan Markle is currently expected to make a brief appearance at the Trooping the Colour, which will take place on June 8th in London this year.
