Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland is now helping the couple out.

An insider told US Weekly: “They’ve had lots of lovely gifts sent from friends and family members including Doria, but the most special thing she’s provided is her time.

“She’s been helping out at the house and her hands-on support is a major bonus.”
