The royal couple are living in Frogmore Cottage. It would be normal for them to hire a full staff to help them, but they reportedly held off on getting certain staff members.

The couple have yet to hire a nanny, chef, or a team of staff at their new family home,” royal reporter Katie Nicholl told Grazia. They instead relied on Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland to help with the baby and she was described as “indispensable.”

The new parents reportedly have tried hiring since then, but a nanny quit. According to the gossip magazine, New Idea there is a reason for this.

Meghan likes to be in control of everything,” an unknown source noted. “She just can’t have anyone be alone with Archie. She’s ignoring help. No one has looked after him but her,” they added. 

She reportedly had a hard time leaving the baby for the parade

Markle’s first public appearance after giving birth was for the Trooping the Colour parade. It was reportedly hard for her.

“She has spent almost every moment with him and saying goodbye was very difficult,” an unnamed source told Us Weekly. “But Meghan truly wanted to be at the celebration for the queen.”

The duchess reportedly had fun with other family members. “Meghan loved seeing all the other royal children and was doting on them,” said the source. Markle played with the kids “throughout the day.” She “always been great with kids, but seemed to gravitate to them more.”

Now that Markle has her own child she has been keeping busy at home. Little Archie reportedly is like his mother already.

Archie is reportedly well-behaved like how Markle was when she was younger

An insider claims to know what life has been like for Markle lately at Frogmore Cottage. The mom is obsessed with her newborn.

Meghan is enjoying days at home with Archie and is very much focused on family,” a source told Us Weekly. “We all expected her to be thinking about work, but her life revolves around Archie at the moment.”

The source said the royal is “spending so much time at Frogmore Cottage can be a little overwhelming at times” and is taking “one day at a time … and loving every moment.”

Markle’s mom reportedly noticed how the son is similar to his mother. “He’s adorable and super chubby,” the source said. “Very quiet, very well behaved. Doria [Ragland] said that Meghan was the same when she was a baby.”

It sounds like the mother has been spending a lot of time with her newborn. They already have similar personalities.
