Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on SECRET trip to LA before baby arrives

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted during the “hush-hush trip” by stunned neighbours, it is reported.

The royal pair apparently jetted to LA to visit Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland at her bungalow – just yards from a cannabis store.

A neighbour told The Sun: “Meghan is a mommy’s girl — their special mother-daughter bond hasn’t disappeared just because she’s moved to England.

“Meghan will always come back to Doria, this will always be her home.

“They are forever in touch, and Meghan has been here to stay on more than one occasion since going public with Harry.

Although it is not known when the visit was made, royal experts believe it is likely Meghan and Harry used the return trip of their tour Down Under in November to stop off in LA.

The revelation comes a week after Meghan enjoyed a plush jaunt to New York for a baby shower thrown for the mum-to-be by her celebrity pals.

The £350,000 bash is a far cry from her mum’s much more modest lifestyle in a two-bed bungalow in the aptly named Windsor Hills district.

She reportedly bought the property for £180,000 in 1994, and it features a 10ft by 15ft, cactus-covered front garden with a sign warning “trespassers will be prosecuted”.

The only sign of her link to royalty are plastic signs in the front garden warning “trespassers will be prosecuted”.

Her nearest store is Dollar Tree, a budget store that is equivalent to Britain’s Poundland.

A cannabis ­dispensary — which is legal in LA — is within walking distance and offers various types of weed including in hash brownies and chocolates.

Doria has reportedly shunned offers of financial help from Meghan as she continues to enjoy her modest lifestyle.
