The royal couple was the subject of pregnancy rumors for months. Last month Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, took an elite babysitting course in California before flying to London to assume her royal duty as head nanny.

Ragland's rep released her statement on Monday, saying "Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild."

Now the royal couple can go about their lives without the pressure to produce a heir.

Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37, are currently touring down under in Australia.

  • Phillybruh

  • cherrypie

    Sigh...so many haters - wishing them well while hoping for a girl with a ginger colored afro

  • iWasteTime

    You give a shit!

  • Victorious82

    Damn they’re really making Doria the mammy. Seems degrading. The black relative is also the hired help. Idk maybe I’m not looking at this wrong but it just seems all kinds of wrong to me.

  • Lady_Elle

    Congratulations to the Happy Couple!

  • Trace da Ace

    Well I'm glad she really pregnant now and folks can stop placing bets on her ovary activity.....I wish them well and happy healthy pregnancy!!! Congrats!!

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    It tickles me inside when I see black women praising this woman..LOL That baby will be white and will know nothing about anything that has to do with being black.. Shhhhiiiiitttt Meghan lowkey doesn't give af either. This is not a win FOR BLACK WOMEN! SHE AIN'T BLACK

  • Lady_Elle

    The baby's maternal Grandmother the head Nanny... GREAT!!!
    I would trust my mom... in charge of those caring for my baby!
    I might be a bit concerned that some might have an issue with my baby.

  • We Can Do This

    I bet there are a lot of fingers crossed hoping that blackness doesn't resurface.

  • Kanyade

    congrats to the lovely couple :)

  • hottlanta

    Congrats 2 the 3 of them.

    Congrats baby inheritance is marred with the blood of our black ancestors. Don’t @ me Queen anarchy is a the number 1 murdera in the world. All thin lips baby

  • GuestSTAR

    The Sprites in her family are the one's acting like JEALOUS WHITE TRASH.

  • Bashi22

    Preach she was living with her man in Toronto

    sad, but true. i remember on downton abbey, that nanny wasn't feeding the little girl and was calling her 'half-breed' because her deddy was the chauffeur! i can only imagine what a 'one drop' baby might be subjected to when no one's watching, Lol!

  • MoniquetheGeek

    A lot of grandmas are babysitting their children. My grandma was babysitter for her grands. I don't see a difference with this. Do you think it's degrading because Meghan's royalty now?

  • hottlanta

    If she wasnt married n had 6 kids by 12 men she would b black all day everyday. There would b ni arguement. She married someone with generational wealth n now she aint black. Megan know she got a perm kit in the beauty salon.

  • Lady_Elle

    I kind of understand what you are saying... but it is her Grandchild. She is related by blood.

    It gives her some $$$ in her pocket and a place to live.

    I kind of look at it as an honor.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    basically. congrats and a safe delivery girl. (welcome to Lil Freckles, Lol!)

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    girl! i was about to font something about a bright red baby 'fro, Lol!

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    So happy for Meghan. By next month they would be saying the ROYAL WOMB is unproductive.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    exactly. if Fergie's drunken azz could be a "Royal" the bar was already lowered, so Meg should do very well actually.

  • hottlanta

    Really. Like the rockefellars is giving money 2 spelman collage bcas they truely love black women.

  • Lady_Elle

    Some people just logon to hate!
    Seems like Cardi-B is the person receiving all kinds of praise lately on this board. Others are not so lucky. :-(

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Yep bringing them in under budget and on schedule.

  • AmericanDream

    Man the royalty is the only thing of ‘value’ the brits have left . We’re talking about a country that used to control about a quarter of the world’s land about three centuries ago. I couldn’t live in a country where I’d have to call a man with an expiration date like me a king , queen , prince or whatever. Congrats though.

  • abby500

    This is BS.....Bag Secured....

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    If she wasn't married and had 6 kids by 12 men she would be black?? Bwhahahhaaaaa having all those kids and men she could be Puerto Rican too, SHhhiiitttt Messy-can... You know wtf I mean! The only thing that's black is Mehgans mother! Meghan doesn't even have a black friend,, Bwhwhahhaaa and black women out here praising her?? why? comical

  • Ihatemoney

    My heart goes out to her as Woman. I wouldn’t like my womb to be everyone’s business. Creating life is a delicate balance

  • Phillybruh

    All I see in my neighborhood are white grandparents and Chinese grandparents instead of a nanny taking care of the babies.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Awesome news for them. I wish her a healthy pregnancy ??

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Congrats!

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Oh she loves the attention.

  • Rayne

    Shidd, I would’ve been pregnant when we met. Congrats ?

  • Abel Ervin

    Ummmmm know the Fuck I don't it was annoying to see this as head news, I not some lil fuckbitch or fucknigga, you failed miserably

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    *dead*

  • WhoKnew

    Congrats to them. I just hope her petty ass father and super petty ass jealous half-sister will leave her alone. I have observed that women who have a stress-free pregnancy tend to have happy babies who don't cry a lot and women who are on a drama-filled roller coaster during pregnancy tend to have whiney babies that cry all the damned time.

  • Tammie Reed

    I was spot on cause her wardrobe changed drastically over the last few months. I always follow her style and fashion choices. Congrats to them, they make such a cute couple!

  • Fire & Ice

    Congrats to them!

  • Guest

    Congrats Meghan and Harry!

  • Logan Roberts

    Congrats!!! Now folks can stfu.

  • cherrypie

    Girl, I hope it is bright red with tight curls. Lol

  • cherrypie

    This is true. Alot do cape for that bird.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The mother doesnt have a whole lot of black in her, so that baby's probably going to look straight white, kinda like Paula Patton and Robin Thicke's son.

  • Victorious82

    Babysitting. A nanny is a full time job. Let grandma be called grandma not the head nanny. That’s degrading. She’s a damn employee. Michelle Obama’s mom helped her out with their children but they didn’t call her a damn nanny and make her take courses before hand. Is Kate’s mama the head nanny or is she just the grandma?

  • We Can Do This

    True. But there is always that possibility.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Are you talking about that little albino boy?

  • Victorious82

    An honor to be the child’s employee? This isn’t oh I’ll pay my mama a few dollars to watch Ray Ray instead of sending him the a daycare. Why is this black woman the only one of the grandmothers that’s been relegated to be staff? I’m sure they will refer to her as the nanny and Megan’s mother and not the child’s grandma.

  • rockstar2142

    That would be beautiful

  • guest

    Megan mother -head nanny....and that just how they would think of her..NANNY! smdh

  • Wreckognize Game

    I know her mother is elated. Wonderful news for them.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I could care less that she is pregnant but did anybody catch the dic print of Prince Harry in this pic YUMMMMMMMMMMMM I see why she is so hot and heavy about him !!!!!!

  • what?why

    Um-m-m why is she traveling to the South Pacific - laden with disease?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ion even know these two....so I have no clue why I am so excited about her being pregnant...but I am. Congrats to the both of them....I guess that wheel chair bound susta of hers finna go into Cardiac Arrest. Ol jealous,trifflin asz

  • Alextra Ballard

    It's her first grand baby so um sure she's ova the moon! I know I would be

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    She is so much motivation of what one can become. I find her inspiring.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    CONGRATS TO THEM!!!

  • Neva RuthLess

    She’s biracial with a black mother. The child will have mitochondrial DNA from a line of black women. Only women can pass on mitochondrial DNA to their offspring, men inherit it but can’t pass it on. Meghan carries a black woman’s MTDNA in her, hopefully it’s a girl so that the dna will live on. She was birth and raised by a beautiful classy black woman. I can relate to her and want to raise my future daughter how Meghan was raised. Bottom line is her children will be able to trace their MTDNA centuries back to Africa.

  • Crazy tee

    OMG the news, website and tabloids are going to drive us insane for the next 6 months...

  • Aries Dog

    All she has to do is look at her black mama if she ever forgets

  • Crazy tee

    You missed me with this one...I’m really not seeing it?????

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Congrats ???

  • dru and neil

    Good for them. The racists are having a conniption.

  • Dun Dilly

    Securing the bag 101.

  • dru and neil

    Yes, I’m sure Doria has no problem caring for her grandchild, but people are even complaining about that, wanting to know why she “gets to skip immigration protocol” or “whose footing the bill for her stay in England.” It’s ridiculous over on daily mail. Just an infestation of jealous racists.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Congrats! I know you love your Royals so Im sure we're going to be on baby watch until spring 2019.

  • MsPam

    Yes, her plan is working out like she has planned.

  • MsPam

    The baby will only know it’s half black because of the grandma/nanny.

  • dru and neil

    She already had a bag of her own. Suits was in its seventh season when she left. People act like she was a reality TV vulture scrapping by.

  • Renee26

    Congrats to them!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Congratulations! Healthy, happy baby.

  • Renee26

    ? when I saw the stance I said to myself "look at big D Harry" lol

  • ClaireHuxtable

    There was probably melanin already in the Royal family. It's just out in the open this time.

  • Renee26

    ? he's not albino

  • KcoolMuziq

    I knew she was preggers. I have a gift of telling when any woman is.

    Congrats to em!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Why is this black woman the only one of the grandmothers that’s been relegated to be staff?
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Ummm bc the other grandmother managed to die... and the great granny is a Queen of a whole ass country? IDK. *shrug*

  • FukkFolks2018

    Wait...Spelman was named after a Rockerfeller no?

  • cherrypie

    Hope that baby come out with beautiful red 4C hair which would come from Harry cause his hair looks bit course. She bet not put no relaxer on it either

  • Victorious82

    I’m not talking about just Harry and Megan. Is Kate Middleton’s mom dead? She’s not a nanny. Was Princess Diana’s mama the nanny? Was the Queen Mother the Queen’s children nanny? I’m all for mom helping her daughter out but why does she have to be an employee and call the head nanny? Shit reminds me of Imitation of Life.

  • Merkaba morris

    Well I feel sorry for her because once she have those kids theres no reason to keep her around anymore, we no how they get down they take your sanity , mind , money , children, and life, remember Princess Diana and her story , This is a wicked ass bloodline ...but yall memory is so bad as long as you get a lil change you good . Yall know dam well The Queen wouldn't let no dam negus in her family without a ulterior motive . they bloodline is becoming extinct so they need that melanin Baby that the Indigenous people can help them get . Her Mothers lineage is what they need to merge to create a different Mulatto, so for the ones who think this is a good thing Yall Pineal Gland need to be decalcify so yall can really see what the fuck is going on ..Wake up ..Love and Light

  • sceutie

    I agree. She's traveling to islands where there is a risk of contracting the Zika virus, not sure how serious this strange show really is. Her father's really quiet these days.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I know but he is quite pale with his blonde hair from his paternal grandmother.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Congratulations to the beautiful, royal couple!

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    right!!!!!! :-(

  • cherrypie

    She had money but she didnt have royal money money

  • FukkFolks2018

    Princess Diana HERSELF was a nanny. Like that was her job prior to being a princess. I dont think anyone looks down on it there. Her mama wasnt a nanny to the grands and for good reason. Frances Kydd was a drunk. A very bad one. A very public one. Kate's mama IDK what she does or doesnt do. I dont think this is a huge deal however. Again a whole ass woman who eventually became a princess herself...at one time was a nanny. Maybe this is Doria's choice? We dont know.

  • MsChocCookie

    She had a welfare bag, compared to his bag, so yes she's securing a huge bag!!

  • gellie

    No chance that trailer trash side of her family will leave her be. No chance at all.

  • KLo

    i recommend newlyweds spend about 2 yrs enjoying one another before having kids....... but I guess if your rich , you can hand them off to the nanny when you need me time

  • Victorious82

    It was her whole ass job to be a nanny. She was an employee. That’s it. Why give this black woman the title of nanny instead of just let her be grandma D? She could still help care for the baby but why call her the nanny? I’m done with it. Y’all rejoice that Doria is the royal baby’s mammy. ??

  • the chosen one

    lmfao

  • gellie

    Operative word being BIRD. It disturbs me how many black women in particular stan for Cardi. What they celebrate in her, they would NEVER tolerate from a black woman. She can act as hoodboogery as she wants and we eat it up. And YET, I've seen more outrage in the hotep fauxtep community for black women praising Meghan Markle (who actually has 1 legit black parent and carries herself with class and dignity) than Cardi B's (she's only black when she wants to say the N word) bird behind.

  • gellie

    Better Meghan than Cardi. At least Meghan HAS a black parent...a REAL one, not one you got to look at the AncestryDNA to find. Cardi out here all kinds of hoodbooger and rachet throwing shoes at people and black people (black women in particular) love and cape for her.

  • pure_igenue?

    If Doria is truly moving over there, employment secures her citizenship...its for the papers...think outside the box a bit...you know good and got dam well Doria will be taken care of by Meghan

  • dru and neil

    We are the ones making that comparison though. She may have been perfectly content. Everyone trying to make her out to be a gold digger is just assuming she wanted more money.

  • pure_igenue?

    Yup, folks need to learn about ethnicity/DNA testing...the Mowery twin married to the WM has a daughter that is browner than her, despite Mom being half black/white...those African genes can snatch back when they want to

  • Yardgirl

    I totally agree with you!! Next to taking care of your child yourself, the next best is YOUR mama!! Call her whatever, that is her grandchild and I for one think that this is a great thing for the baby.

  • Miss Thang

    Thank God. Now we can all relax smh

  • Miss Thang

    She knew what the deal was when she married a prince. The whole point is to get knocked up asap.

  • Miss Thang

    LOL!

  • pure_igenue?

    Exactly, Doria would be an immigrant and a "commoner" once legalized, so she has to do the protocol nonsense in line with their laws/traditions so the public can't complain about favoritism...the Brits are already salty that Harry married an American who is half Black, so Doria definitely needs to be employed...on paper lol

  • pure_igenue?

    Well technically Harry and co are on welfare...their royal wealth is secured via tax dollars

  • pure_igenue?

    I don't believe it, too many look inbred lol

  • Eileen

    I waited 18 months before I became pregnant. A couple should have at least 2 years alone with each other working out the kinks, getting to know each others personal habits.and just enjoying other as a married couple.

  • Eileen

    girl you crazy it aint like her kid gonna sit on a throne..LOL

  • Eileen

    You crazy I know all about the pineal gland blah blah blah LOL

  • Eileen

    After World War 2 it was over for those dam Brits. The black soldiers were coming home demanding equal rights , the Civil Rights movement was bubbling up and the UN had been formed. There was no need for colonization anymore. It wasnt in their financial interests morality NEVER played a part in it that is why they call them those damn brits. They raped every black and brown country and then left it to the victims to clean up their ish! History is so interesting...but all is forgiven at least by me.

  • Eileen

    her skin isnt light enough to have a caramel baby and Megan's mother is light complected. would Meagan call her baby black ...i dont think so

  • Eileen

    he does look albonish

  • Eileen

    sad but true...

  • Eileen

    sadly you speak truth it is not as if meagan embraced black culture she NEVER did unless it was in a strategic way, ie: her friendship with Serena!

  • Eileen

    Yep thats true

  • Eileen

    Yep I saw her edges!

  • hottlanta

    Sitting on piles a money is a softer throne 2 sit on.

  • hottlanta

    Why not. I saw some kids at a party last week that had natural hair that screamed hair comb. The parents twisted thé hair one time n stopped.

  • Eileen

    I would suck it dry for what its worth/...LOL it is her grandchild!!

  • hottlanta

    No they do a lot of funding for spelman. If spelman was founded by a black woman we never see her family lineage or a statue of her outside of thé school like mary mcleod bethune at the school bethune cookman. Spelman was a school for black women not founded by black women. It wad found by white people so the black girls could have their own school just like morehouse.

  • hottlanta

    Couples should get pregnant on their own love timeline n no one elses. Just like 3 time serial marrier Steve harvey talking bout folks should wait 90 days b4 having sex when he didnt wait 90 days b4 he went from his 2nd wife 2 his 3rd wife. 2 years might work for u but may not work for someone else. Love is not a 1 size fit all for everybody.

  • tia

    I'm happy for them. I am curious to how this baby is going to look? A "gingered head" baby with melanin poppin' ( a little bit anyway) ? Maybe like the Curry kids or back in the day the Eve's Bayou movie with Jurnee Smollet? Whatever... Beautiful I'm sure and all babies are precious to me. No matter how they look, I dare not talk about anybodies baby--EVER.

    Whatever the case, praying for a full term healthy pregnancy. Congrats to the couple.

  • TMW

    I was with my husband for 6 1/2 years before we married - thought I knew everything and had been through everything. We wanted to have a child right away, and the doctor told me to stop taking BC 6 months prior to our wedding date. Guess how many months pregnant I was when I got married?? Anyway I don’t think having the baby right away changed the dynamics out of marriage, but I know we both made decisions during our marriage to stay because of the baby.

    To each his own. What works for some doesn’t work for everybody.

  • TMW

    I am not into psychic stuff, but I read that Diana’s go-to psychic predicted that Meghan was indeed pregnant, that they will have 3 kids and divorce/separate after 2 years of marriage, and that Harry will be devastated because he will never see it coming. She said she believes this partially because Meghan’s other 2 relationships didn’t last more than 2 years.

    OT: could Cardi B be dumb enough to be pregnant again? She asked on Twitter what her fans thought if she was to have another baby. Good grief.

  • Yardgirl

    You got it!! *high five*

  • cherrypie

    True but Meghan is 37. She knew she had to get it poppin soon so she can shoot out a few babies before its too late.

  • devonia

    That is correct. Let's not forget Queen Charlotte, the wife of George III. She was of African descent and she was gorgeous.

  • Eileen

    You mean shading on harvey...LOL at least he legitimized all his kids...

  • Eileen

    Absolutely!!!

  • Meme

    wtf mito....what? That's why I love coming on here learn something new everyday.thanks! Now im off to google

  • Meme

    "would Meagan call her baby black ...i dont think so"

    she doesn't have to....others would do it for her!

  • MrsHBC

    I’m excited for Meghan & Harry. They seem smitten with one another. Prayers for a healthy pregnancy & easy delivery.

  • MrsHBC

    That doggone psychic didn’t predict Diana being killed. At first she said Diana spoke to her beyond the grace & she approves of Meghan. Then she came back and said Diana was angry & didn’t approve. Now this? Sounds like she’s confused to me. She’s hating on Meghan because of her roots. In regards to Cardi B SMH the child needs guidance. ?????

  • Quitedeliteful

    Oh GAWD! First, congrats to the happy couple. That being said, I don't want to hear about this, read about this or talk about this for the next year. I'm really not interested. The media will cover this nonstop.

  • Quitedeliteful

    snicker...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I got a headache just thinking about it...

  • TransMichelle

    I said before that ain't no way they would have gotten married if Meghan wasn't fertile as hell. That's part of the requirement that these women who marry royalty must reproduce and quickly. They gave Meghan all types of tests to make sure those ovaries were working over time. Now they' produce a heir and a couple of spares.

  • Dun Dilly

    Her bag aint that BRITISH ROYALTY BAG going back a 500 yrs and will last 500 more. There are levels to these bags.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    L0l! Lil Charlotte & George look cute, but them other ones...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Grace Kelly and the Monaco royals have their claim on melanin too! Everyone wants a lil taste of melanin.

  • dru and neil

    But did she want that? She married him just for that? Everyone assuming she wasn’t content with her life. There’s perks involved, but I think she and Harry married for love not financial come up.

  • Maat Morris

    Evidently you know nothing of the 3 Eye and its purpose if you didn't understand what text I was using it in and why I have that narrative , It looks like u jus go up and down committing on subjects you know nothing about , stop fucking with people if you dont agree jus keep it moving. It seems to me like u are the one mentally challenged . Love Yourself, Go read a book .....Love and Light

  • Dun Dilly

    I'm pretty sure giving birth to a British Royal was exactly what she wanted. That's NOT a bad thing to want something like that but it is a "WANT" and desire.

  • dru and neil

    There seems to be a large amount of the population determined to make this woman into a gold digging opportunistic interloper...

  • BaileyBlue17

    I was thinking THE SAME THING about the kid looking like Jurnee if it's a girl and Blake Griffin if it's a boy. Lol!!

    Blah blah...

    I'm sick of it already and they just started. :-(

    she was mixed race

  • Lunatic Frank

    people try call kim k a gold digger too not knowin kim k is worth millions

  • sceutie

    Any real educated black person would know NOT to marry into this family. When the balance of power is off kilter so is the relationship. Her mother must not be a student of history. The sideshows from this relationship looked like they were cooked up in central casting. Time will definitely tell.
