Here's How Meghan Markle Is Preparing for the Royal Birth

It involves a lot of quality time with family.

While the whole world waits for the arrival of Baby Sussex (any day now!), Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly getting some much-needed R&R and enjoying being around their loved ones. A source tells Entertainment Tonight that the last few weeks have been a "love-filled time" for Markle and that she has received "so much compassion from her new family."

The source also said that "Meg looks absolutely radiant" and is "looking forward to the birth."

According to reports, Markle's mother Doria Ragland recently made her way to the U.K. from California so that she would be by Markle's side when the baby came. A source shared that Ragland had been helping the couple get settled into their new home at the renovated Frogmore Cottage, and that she was trying to make things as easy as possible for the soon-to-be parents.

At Frogmore Cottage, the couple has been enjoying lots of visits from members of the royal family. A few days ago, Markle and Prince Harry had Kate Middleton and Prince William over. Then, news emerged that on Easter, the Queen herself had stopped by to check to see how Markle was doing. She also reportedly got a tour of the cottage, which she gave to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as a wedding gift.

Queen E later sent the Internet into a panic when a motorcade she took to Windsor Castle had pink blankets displayed in the window. Many people thought it was a sign of the baby, but their theories were quickly disproved by Buckingham Palace. They confirmed to CBS News on May 2 that the royal baby had not arrived, ending speculation that Markle had already given birth.

So, it looks like the waiting game continues. The upside is that the family-filled time that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are enjoying is going to continue—and it's likely going to get even better once their newborn is here.
