Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have been quarantining with their 1-year-old son Archie in Los Angeles amid the coronavirus pandemic. But for Mother's Day, the family was able to see Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, who also lives in the California city, OprahMag.com and People report. A source told OprahMag.com that Meghan, Doria, and the family were mindful of proper social distancing guidelines.

Multiple sources told OprahMag.com that Doria is "incredibly close" to both Meghan and Harry. She also visited the family of three while they were living in Vancouver Island earlier this year.

Doria was also behind the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision to volunteer with Project Angel Food last month to help deliver meals to those at risk in the city as the state remained under a shelter-in-home order during the COVID-19 outbreak. Doria alerted them to food insecurity in the area and suggested they get involved with the organization.

The Duke and Duchess remain committed to their projects and using their platform to help others—their work with Project Angel Food being a testament to that drive. “If they see a solution they can be involved in, if they can help facilitate, then they’ll do it right then and there,” a source close to the couple told ELLE.com earlier this month. "It’s what drives them in their life and their charitable work."

Meghan and Harry spent last Mother's Day in England. The Duchess had just given birth to her son a week before. On their now inactive SussexRoyal Instagram, the couple shared an intimate photo of Meghan with Archie, sharing a heartfelt message to mothers everywhere.

"Paying tribute to all mothers today—past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered," the SussexRoyal Instagram post said. "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."
