Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland was spotted taking nanny classes not far from her home in Los Angeles. The sighting sparked more rumors that Meghan is pregnant with her and Prince Harry's first child.

Royal watchers were buzzing after the Duchess of Sussex's mother was seen taking nanny classes. Hollywoodlife.com reports that Ms. Ragland, 62, is planning to move to London soon.

Ragland was spotted taking nanny/baby care classes at the Cradle Company near her Los Angeles home, according to Daily Star Sunday.

“Two of the teachers, Brandi and Hannah, are training Doria at her home half an hour away to avoid attracting unwanted attention,” a source told the newspaper.

“Meghan wants to avoid hiring staff if possible once her first child arrives. The thought of having her mum move in with them and take on the role of baby nurse is the best possible solution to that. Even more so because it’s something Doria has always wanted to do anyway. She already specializes in prenatal yoga. She’s learned everything from breastfeeding and lactation consultancy, basic baby care, CPR and first aid. The course also covers sleep training for later on, weaning and helping the new mother with her recovery."

Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot in May. Meghan, who recently turned 37, was married once before to a commoner. The brief union did not produce children.

    ----------------
    She's still married to one, an ordinary person whose family continues to fool people into believing that royalty exists.

  • Trey

    hahahahaha...she was mandated by the royal house for this foolsihness..lady done raised kids and told she need to take lessons to be a nanny......

  • Trey

    So I guess no black kings are queens ever existed

    Nanny classes?? How degrading...

    Smdh all the slavery movies didn't raise a red flag to what will happen to Megan's mom???

  • MythCalledLove

    There is a PR chapter on how to fake a pregnancy and make the public believe it. The "Beyonce Sit" is no longer taught. We now teach "Nailed It" Now let's finish prepping mom. Operation She's having my baby will start once we have the operation perfect. We need to get those Meg bumps & seamstress ready to go.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Hollywoodlife? They write more bs there then there is in sewage station.

  • Soda

    Not really, just ordinary people. People were too afraid to question it back then since they had no freedom of choice or thought. What makes someone royal?

  • WhoKnew

    Meghan's mom looks and sounds like a sane and sound-minded person who can be trusted with a child, so I think it's a good idea for her to be both G-Ma and the nanny but I don't think she'll need classes. Being a good mother and a good grandmother come naturally. Ciara's dad is a nanny to her kids. You have to have people you can trust unequivocally without worry or doubt with your kids.

    Now Meghan's crazy as a damned fox, a squirrel, a horney ass bear, a nutty ass fruit cake daddy HELL NO I would not trust him as far as I could throw his fat ass.

  • ALLMINE?

    They made a "QUEEN" take nanny classes? ????

  • hi-liter

    It ain't Nothing like having G-Ma as a nanny-sitter. Its a good idea to keep her mom around for her baby.

    I swear.

  • cherrypie

    The Royal family aint slick...trying to get a bit of melenin in their bloodline for future heirs

  • Alextra Ballard

    This is getting tiresome. ...these people continue to monitor Meghans reproductive system. They never watched Kate this closely

  • Cricket404

    It's is customary for African American mother's to look after their daughters child. I love that Meghan brought her this rich culture with her to the palace. I have never seen Kate's mummy.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    OMGosh I guess they know when she takes a šhit too!

  • dontgetblocked

    Every race does this not just African-Americans. How is this a culture thing?

  • Renee26

    Hmmmm so she had to take classes as if she didn't already raise her own children....interesting

  • Karen Brady

    Her mommy is soooooo beautiful ?

  • Dreadboi

    You would he surprised what their bloodline REALLY consist of..Don't let the narrative fool you about the royals..

  • J2PC

    Children? Doria only has one child: Meghan who is now 37yrs old. That is eons ago for a 62yr old woman to wrap her mind around trying to figure it all out again. It's a good thing that she's is learning how to be a proper nanny rather than a grandmother wingin' it. lol

    Simply having food on the table keeps a child alive. With the school & TV programs occupying most of their time is not raising them. Those kids are dragged NOT loved well & raised up properly.

    As a result, they often turn out be highly dysfunctional, lost souls resorting to drugs, alcohol abuse & bad relationships where the cycle repeats itself when they have children.

  • J2PC

    I have seen both of her parents plenty of time. Some folks recall those articles & pics whereas others might not. -White mothers who work & have a career don't have time to look after their grandchildren, except for special visits.

    Black grandmothers who were stay at home wives/mothers or part-time workers oftentimes don't have a choice but to pitch in & help out to keep their children from going into system or the mother from losing her apartment.

    It is not customary for most Black women with a career, husband or job of their own to nanny their grandchildren.

    -Meg's Mother happens to be free & single where she can quit her professional career as a licensed Counseling Therapist along with her private Yoga Instructor Classes.

  • J2PC

    They are obsessed with a biracial Black woman marrying into the royal family. -and the hate is real.

  • Dowoop

    Well said.. Nothing wrong with a refresher. I have friend with a 3 yr old and 3 nth old and they said they forgot how much work a newborn is.

  • J2PC

    History has proven that 2 Mulatto women were already married into the royal family decades ago. One of the known Black Queen of England was the 18th Century Queen of England Sophie Charlotte. -look it up.

    Therefore, they are not trying to be slick since this has already happened at least twice.

  • J2PC

    Kate was a commoner & so was Camilla. -upgrade to what? A loveless robot by designed from a social circle? He tried all of those women & was in a long-term relationship with 2 of them, but that didn't make him happy.

    Love is based on real substance & matters of heart not some manufactured publicity stunt. Those marriages seldom last.

    Prince Di was a Spencer & far prettier than Camilla. Yet, the Prince loves his current wife far more than he ever loved the manufactured higher society wife. -love is not about what spectators or outsiders think, but what the 2 individuals in a relationship feel and think.

  • Faithz

    Beautiful girl Meghan, she and her
    Mom seen very close that is good!

  • Faithz

    That sure is Interesting.

  • Faithz

    Oh My.

  • J2PC

    Royalty has to do with families who led & won major wars to rule & lead their country or territory for decades. That title & power to rule is kept in-house or among family for generations until they are dethroned & ousted via a war, etc.

    -not sure what you are assuming Royalty means.

  • J2PC

    Who cares? If true, renting a younger womb (as pouch) to carry their DNA/baby is safer than risking a miscarriage. But, I believe that Meg is pregnant. She looks like she is fighting & pushing through morning sickness all day.

    Plenty of late 30s & 40 something year old women have naturally gotten pregnant and had their oopsie baby without IVF.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LOL drastic, yes!

    Just saying, these people can’t even go grocery shopping without media coverage.

  • Faithz

    That could be stressful often time.

    This is crazy.. Meghan is unda alot of pressure, however, she plays it off well. I hope Harry is worth it. Just let her live!

  • the guest

    Meghan looks just like her mom and her dad, she is a perfect blend of her parents. I'm just so excited about locks and yoga in Buckingham Palace. Meghan's mother brings such a regal and lovely presence to the royal family. I imagine they will eventually give her a title.

  • the guest

    Kate's mum is very involved, her grandchildren visit with them often. I recall reading her mother moved in for a while after George was born.

  • the guest

    to keep their children from going into system or the mother from losing her apartment.

    ****

    A tad stereotypical?

    I've never known one black woman at risk of losing her children or apartment. Grandmothers help because they love their grandchildren.

  • CookieMobster

    If I'm married to the dang prince of England, my momma ain't gonna be the hired help though. I will have her set up nicely somewhere very close by, but not as my nanny!!!!!!!!

  • Bea Mack,ThaLiteSkinMissCelie

    Um..... whaat?!?!?!?!?

  • Allihave2say

    The hate is thicker than London Fog. Not only are the Brits bitter but the comment section on fat daily mail from Americans is brutal.

  • Allihave2say

    Meghan's wedding dress was a replica of Charlott'es dress. There was a lot of historical presentation in Meghan's wedding that so many missed.

  • Bea Mack,ThaLiteSkinMissCelie

    I know you are serious..... but why are you dragging ALL the slave movies into this? ???

    ?thinks about about how Mandingo ended ? .......is that how it will end for her mom? With her being boiled alive?!?

  • Allihave2say

    That's why Kate is so full of hate.

  • Bea Mack,ThaLiteSkinMissCelie
  • Wreckognize Game

    I see this kind of like the Obamas when they were in the White House. Michelle's mother was there with them and available if they left the girls home. Sure they had a full staff but nothing's safer than Grandma?

  • J2PC

    Nowadays, those with jobs will only help to an extent on the weekends. A number of kids grow up, go onto college and/or the military, get married, have a career with each of these taking them to different states, towns/cities or countries away from their parents.

    -grandmothers can't be there except to come visit and return home to her own busy life & job.

  • Dun Dilly

    Black Mom taking "NANNY" classes? Hmmmmmm

  • WhoKnew

    As a grandma I say Amen to that!

  • Soda

    Guess I sat right next to you, you couldn't answer the question.

  • WhoKnew

    Right. Really? A white mom might need nanny lessons but certainly not a black mom. Most black women did not grow up with a silver spoon in their mouth or with their own nanny. Most black women learned how to be a mother from their own mother and from Big Mama. And Big Mama learned from her mama and her Big Mama etc.

  • Soda

    It means nothing, just an archaic system people follow. Those so-called royal families are no better than the people of the countries or territories they invaded & stole.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Beautiful mom and daughter. Those in harm's way of this storm I'm praying for your safety ?

  • Coco Mcluvin

    The mother is just playin her part versus complaining so she can be there to support her daughter and future grandchildren, unlike the dad.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I’m sure the nanny classes are to help her assimilate to her child’s new lifestyle and new responsibilities as a member of the royal family. That’s big of her to be open to learning and supporting her daughter and future grand babies in this way. It’s a completely different culture than what she may be familiar with as an American.

  • Rayne

    Whose better to do the job than yo mama?!? The kids will be around strange ppl doing strange things. So you know yo mama gone be right there with those concerned grandma eyes ?

    “What’s going on in there??”

  • Trace da Ace

    here yall go again...ovary hustling.....moving on--->

    Why doe she have to to take a nanny classes after raising a whole well rounded child?

  • iWasteTime

    Y'all mad that she takes a class to ensure she gets a damn check!
    What is the problem.
    Yeah she could do it for the love of her grandbaby but why not get paid too. Chris Brown paying his BM mother 4K a month

  • free

    my mama would still be about that life though. it's probably gonna be tough as hell!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I'm aware of all this, being married myself, but in my opinion that's an upgrade. And if she didn't feel like Harry was a great catch and good for her life then she would not have married him.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Because the white supremacists requires it

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Well from all these strippers and thugs being produced in the black community I think black women do need a lot more than nanny classes

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I was thinking the same thing, lol....why not make a job out of spending time with your grandkids. Look at the way Ms Tina is able to spend time and bond with Blue Ivy. If she had to work a regular 9-5, she probably wouldn't have the time, energy or money to experience the things and create the memories they have.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Of course! I expect nothing less of her....those children need to know where there mother came from as well. But there is no sense on her being over there complaining and such. That is the life her daughter chose. Her dad has completely ostracized himself because he couldn't get his act together.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    There are strippers and thugs in every community. Cut the shit....

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Right...that comment is insane. I wonder where they got those statistics. I thought black grandmothers help out because it takes a village to raise a child, we barely trust family, let alone strangers and daycare is extremely expensive. But wtf do I know?!

  • Guess Who

    oh....

  • TOO REAL

    So desperate to be in the limelight that you willing to become a modern day slave. In other words she's fine with another country telling her how she must act and what she has to learn to live anywhere near a child she gave birth to. Her child is selfish and an ingrate to put her mother through this. PITIFUL CHASING FAME.

  • TOO REAL

    F--K BEING PAID THE POINT IS SHE RAISED HER CHILD WITHOUT CLASSES AND OBVIOUSLY KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING SO WHY THE CLASS NOW BECAUSE ANOTHER COUNTRY SAYS DO THIS OR NO DAUGHTER THAT YOU BIRTH. GTFOH

  • Guess Who

    LMAO!

    You know, I think that is the price you pay when you become a "royal". Maybe that was why Diana always looked so miserable and stayed abroad trying to help the less fortunate.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Exactly? So why require her to take classes....if it is a requirement?

  • free

    when she put a chicken bone in that child mouth to suck on all hell is gonna break loose.

  • Kimocha

    Hmmm.... It sounds like the ROYALS have a "certain type" of way of caring for their babies and mom's gotta get with the program... I guess it's part of "the proper process and procedures" when being married to royalty... I'm sure they knew this when they signed up for this.... May GOD be with them... because these royal people are not regular folks and you got to follow strict rules and protocols if you're gonna be included into this family..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    i didn't think that our people took nanny classes. back then, we would resort to our "maw maw" or " big mama" to get our parenting or medicinal advice from. if my great grandmother was still here, i would still be visiting her for advice and "at home" remedy treatments. she could make a concoction just by gathering the roots and berries in the woods. i guess that is why she lived to be 101 years old. the only reason she died was due to falling and breaking her hip. gosh do i miss both her and my grandmother.

  • Kimocha

    Lol! Love it!

  • Renee26

    Once a mother always a mother...it's like riding a bike. She only taking those classes cause the Queen ordered it in order for her to care for her grandchild. Grandma's across the world have been helping take care of children and they don't need a special class to do it.

  • none yubiz

    That's exactly why Princess Di was unhappy. Those reptilians controlled and watched her every move. And when she went the unconventional route and tried to rebel, they slaughtered her for the world to see.

    I am a firm believer that Elizabeth is a damn shape shifting reptilian. Even looking at pictures of her, she doesn't look like your average sweet, old white woman grandma type. She looks like if you accidentally opened her bedroom door at 3am she would be fully pounced on an innocent young child, feeding off it's young blood with blood dripping down her chin.

    Who cares about how their baby is born as long as it is still both of their own DNA is the point. The rest is whatever. lol

  • J2PC

    Plenty of people from all walks of life have been or are mothers. Not ALL mothers are created equal. Some are criminals, highly dysfunctional, very abusive & have no clue about how to instill good values into their children.

    Dysfunctionals will expect the hood; daycare, grandmother, the TV, electronics/social media or music as well as school for their free lunch programs to just drag up their kids for them. Dragging up is just yelling at them, shooing them away & feeding them just keeping them alive. But, most of those kids are dead inside & become lost, dysfunctional souls. Hence, the stuff we're witnessing in today's society. ijs

    There is nothing wrong with learning the educational & psychological aspect to properly raising a child in Royal setting where there is an art & mindful thought-process also behind raising a child well. -it is not about just wingin' it with a milk bottle & sitting in a rocking chair as the days go by. lol

  • J2PC

    Upgrade is a myth created by the hood because Black women aren't suppose to achieve greatness or find a decent man. That woman also happens to have royal blood via her father. The Queen tracked her down & made her a match for Harry. ;)

    Prince Harry may not be marrying a commoner, after all since research finds that Meghan Markle actually has royal blood in her via her Father. Meghan is the direct descendant of England's King Edward III, who ruled from 1327 until 1377, according to genealogist, Gary Boyd Roberts. That technically makes her and Harry 17th cousins.

    Upgrade? This is what people don't know unless they do the research: Markle, a Los Angeles-born American citizen, is a 24th generation descendant of King Edward III. The lineage was discovered through Rev. William Skipper, a royal descendant who arrived in New England in 1639. He's an ancestor of Markle's father, Thomas Wayne Markle.

    Let's not forget that not only was she well-educated and attended private Catholic grade school before going onto the elite Northwestern U. -she also had worked & earned a networth of $4.3mil by the time she was introduced to Prince Harry. They are equal. She is a decent woman of good quality. He is lucky to have her as well.

  • J2PC

    Might not mean nothing, but it means everything when all the commoners are still willing peasants paying high taxes to finance the lifestyle of the royal family. -of course they are just people, but it's all about who is in control of who.

    The royal family controls many parts of the world. Canada, America, Australia, UK and influence other countries. -while others are talking, they will continue to be protected & live well for generations to come. ijs

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    No one said he wasn't lucky to have her and he's an upgrade compared to her ex as far as I'm concerned. Shrugs

  • J2PC

    Thank God upgrade is not my way of thinking. That is why the Black community fare the worst of all with 78% of Black fathers never been married. Wow! Only 27% are married or have ever been married. -it's a messed up mentality that needs to be deprogrammed. Upgrade is made up by the hood or rappers & not even real and very materialistic which is why nothing ever last for long with them.

    It's all about bouncing from female to female with this so-called "upgrading mentality" while selfishly creating a bunch of fatherless babies growing up in broken family homes or raised in single-mother households.

    -whether or not a man is Royal or have money, it's about the quality of a man's character. Money only pays the bills. Otherwise there wouldn't be so many wealthy people divorcing. Prince Harry could have grown up finally into a decent man ready to be somebody's husband or could be the biggest jerk with status & money leading them to eventually divorce. That would NOT be considered an upgrade.
