Royal baby watch has officially begun, everyone! Pregnant duchess Meghan Markle has been laying low for the last couple of weeks, and we've all been waiting not-so patiently to hear of any news about the upcoming bundle. However, her mom, Doria Ragland, just arrived in London from across the pond, making it very clear that Baby Sussex could come at a moment's notice. 

  • Yup, Meghan's mom, Doria, touched down in England, ready to welcome her little baby grandchild!

    According to Entertainment Tonight, Meghan's mom flew straight from Los Angeles to London. We don't know where exactly Meghan has been hiding out for the last few weeks, but we're sure that's where Doria was headed too once her flight landed. 

    If we had to guess, we'd say mom, daughter, and future baby are resting comfortably in Frogmore Cottage right now, just waiting for the main event.

  • Now, as we all know, Meghan is extremely close with her mom, so it's no surprise she wanted her by her side as she welcomes her first child.

    What girl wouldn't want her mom with her as she gives birth for the first time? It's unclear how long Doria will be staying after Meghan has her royal baby, but a source told People that she will not be making a "permanent move" to England.

    Either way, we're hoping her flight home is still a little open-ended. With all the press and attention that this baby is going to give Meghan and Harry, it's understandable if the duchess should want her mom to stay and help deal with the madness.

  • This isn't the first time Doria has visited Meghan since she's lived across the pond, but this trip has our baby radars going haywire.

    Doria was the only member of Meghan's family to attend the royal wedding, and she also visited back in September, when the duchess was celebrating the publishing of her community cookbook.

    And now, in late April, Doria is here for one reason, and one reason only: to see the upcoming (and undoubtedly adorable) Baby Sussex.

  • Sure, Doria's arrival means the time is almost here, but that doesn't mean we're going to know exactly when it happens.

    Meghan and Harry recently announced that they plan on celebrating privately with family before they tell the world the good news, which is very anti-royal way of doing things. But hey, that's the Sussexes for you.

    And now that Meghan's mom is finally in the same country, the duchess probably feels like she has all she needs to welcome little Baby Sussex into the world. It's only a matter of time now, folks!
