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."


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. 


During an interview session with "DailyMail," Joseph Johnson mentioned how thrilled he was that his sister would be there to help his niece who is soon to become a mother herself. 

“I think she’ll be a great grandmother if she helps to raise that child anything like Meghan was raised." — Joseph Johnson. 

Joseph also revealed that he does not agree with the stories of Meghan being a "difficult" Duchess. When asked if he thinks the Duchess enjoys the spotlight he replied,

“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. 


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!
