The fascinating story of Baby Sussex's doting new Grandma: Doria Ragland

The Duchess's mother is a force to be reckoned with.

By Jess Pullar
When cameras caught the look of pure happiness and pride on the face of Duchess Meghan's mother at her royal wedding to Prince Harry, it's safe to say our hearts melted.
From that point on, Doria Ragland became known as our Queen of Hearts.
There's no mistaking the 62-year-old for the powerhouse she is: just look at how incredibly poised and caring her only daughter Meghan is - that kind of person can only have been raised by the best.
The mother and daughter duo have certainly already left a strong impression on the royal family. Earlier in September, Doria attended the launch of Meghan's charity cookbook at Kensington Palace - an unprecedented move given non-royal family members traditionally don't join royals on official engagements.
And now, as her daughter welcomes her first child, you can guarantee that Doria was right by her side
Confirmed in a statement from Buckingham Palace, the proud new mum is currently staying with Meghan and Harry at their home Frogmore Cottage in Windsor as they spend their first few days with their family's new addition.
The Palace also confirmed that Doria was "overjoyed" with the news - and we can certainly see why considering her and daughter Meghan's close bond.
