A royally low-key day! Duchess Meghan is spending her first Mother’s Day with Prince Harry, their newborn son, Archie, and her mother, Doria Ragland at their home in Windsor, England, on Sunday, May 12, an insider tells Us Weekly. “It will be a very quiet day full of spending time with family.”

As for their new Frogmore Cottage home, the insider notes: “Meghan and Harry are very happy with how the house and nursery turned out, everything is comfortable and they are much happier than when they were living at Kensington Palace.”

According to the insider, three isn’t a crowd at their abode, either. “Meghan and Harry both love having Doria there, she is so level-headed and just what a set of new parents need to keep them calm and give them great advice,” the source shares of the former Suits star’s mom, who has been visiting from Los Angeles since late last month.

“Harry and Meghan are truly in baby bliss right now,” the insider notes. “It is a life they’ve both dreamed of and now they get to live it.”

The couple — who wed at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018 — announced the arrival of their son on Monday, May 6, and two days later they shared the first picture of the newborn and revealed his name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The California native, 37, and the former military pilot, 34, posted a heartfelt message to moms around the world on Sunday, May 12, alongside a photo of Meghan cradling Archie, with only his tiny feet showing. In the snap, the mother-and-son duo gave a subtle nod to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana, with her favorite flowers, forget-me-nots, featured in the pic.

“Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honor and celebrate each and every one of you. Today is Mother’s Day in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan, and several countries across Europe. This is the first Mother’s Day for The Duchess of Sussex.”
