"They loved the food - the naans are made in house, they take two days to make from scratch, in an imported Tandori oven. The chef even makes his own ghee. Everyone said they were really great, and they had a very pleasant time."

The couple dined at The Dutchess in Ojai

The Dutchess is named after the eatery's original oven - the establishment is a busy bakery in the morning and in the evening it transforms into a Burmese restaurant with a chef from Burma who has been there for 15 years.

It is located around 20 miles from the couple's family home in Montecito. And there's a high chance that Meghan's mother Doria stepped in to watch their children, Archie, three, and one-year-old Lilibet, so they could enjoy an evening out together.

Doria Ragland plays a huge role in the couple's family life

While Meghan and Harry have plenty of space for Doria in their main house, the royal couple also have a separate two-bedroom guesthouse which is the perfect pad for Doria when she comes to visit.

The hands-on grandmother reportedly spent nearly $5.5k in grandparenting classes to prepare for her grandchildren's arrival.

Reflecting on Doria's all-important role, Meghan later revealed: "It got me thinking about all the ways my mom supported me, how she took care of me and the house and herself… and how she just juggled so much…".
