Meghan Markle's Uncle Reveals First Baby Photos of the Duchess of Sussex and Her Mom
Meghan Markle's baby pictures have surfaced on the internet after being released by her uncle, Joseph Johnson. The 69-year-old who reportedly shares the same mother with Doria (Meghan Markle's mom) released an unseen album of baby pictures.
In one picture the Duchess and her mother were in the hospital. Presumably, it was the day she was born. In another, she could be seen with her late grandmother "Jeanette."

“If things are wrong and there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something.” — The Duchess of Sussex has become Vice-President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which Her Majesty The Queen is Patron, and The Duke of Sussex is President. In her new role, The Duchess will highlight the Trust's partnerships with young people across the Commonwealth, and in particular its work supporting women and girls. In celebration of International Women’s Day, Her Royal Highness joined a special panel discussion of female thought-leaders and activists convened by The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, to discuss a range of issues affecting women today. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2019 #QCT #QCTxIWD
Jeanette was described as a "significant influence" in Meghan's life since she would cater to her while Doria was at work. Markle remained close to her grandmother till she passed away at the age of 71 after battling with heart disease and stroke.
There was also another lovely image which showed the little Duchess as she took her first steps outside and walked towards the camera.

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.
“I think she’ll be a great grandmother if she helps to raise that child anything like Meghan was raised." — Joseph Johnson.
“She likes that attention, she’s had the schooling, and then being in Hollywood, which is a good type of preparation, so she can handle that. I have read that some of Harry’s old girlfriends couldn’t handle all the scrutiny. But from what I hear, from what Doria says about Meghan, she loves it.”
The couple who recently moved into their new home is expecting their first child in a few weeks from now. Meghan also has taken a break from public appearances. The Kensington Palace announced that the royal couple would keep details of their birth private until the parents and family have had the chance to celebrate the great news.
The Duchess' mother, Doria who has always been very close to her daughter, is of course expected to fly over to the UK to help with the birth of her grandchild.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
The former first lady, Michelle Obama also advised the soon to be mom; the duo have known each other for some time, and Michelle knows Prince Harry reasonably well. In an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, Michelle said:
“Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she'd have a life like this, and the pressure you feel — from yourself and from others — can sometimes feel like a lot. So my biggest pieces of advice would be to take some time and don't be in a hurry to do anything."
The Duchess of Sussex was a very cute baby!
