Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘took Archie to enjoy socially distant Mother’s Day with Doria Ragland’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "took baby Archie to spend Mother's Day with Doria Ragland while social distancing", according to reports.

Meghan, 38, celebrated Mother's Day for her mum Doria on 12 May, while in the United Kingdom Mother's Day took place on 22 March.

But it is thought Meghan and her 35 year old husband took their son, who turned one earlier this month, to enjoy the day with Doria, 63.

A source told Oprah magazine that everybody was "mindful of proper social distancing guidelines" but still managed to have a "special" day together.

It is believed that Doria lives close to Harry and Meghan in Los Angeles, where they are staying in a £14.5million mansion owned by actor Tyler Perry.

She is also thought to have lived with the trio in Vancouver while they spent time in Canada over Christmas and New Year.

Doria is also believed to have been instrumental in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's recent charity work for Project Angel Food — telling her daughter and son-in-law about the organisation personally.

World Mother's Day isn't the only occasion the family have celebrated this month, as their son turned one on 6 May.

Earlier this week, an insider spilled on the celebration: "Meghan made the cake — strawberries and cream. And Harry helped with decorations and blew up balloons."

They added to People magazine that day was "simple" and "incredibly joyous" with Meghan's product being used as a smash cake.

It is also believed that Archie and his parents enjoyed video calls with their family and his Godparents on his lockdown birthday.

The trio are said to have been surrounded by their dogs on the special day, with the source spilling that Archie is "best friends with his dogs," adding: "They make him laugh and are gentle with him."

Sharing the day with their fans around the world, Harry and Meghan posted a video of her reading the children's book Duck! Rabbit! to her son.

A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess said they wanted to mark Archie’s birthday by highlighting the issues.

The Duke has long been active in charity work for children and young people, notably in Africa. The Duchess has spoken passionately about gender equality, focusing global attention on the disadvantages faced by girls in health, education and prospects for work.
