From yoga and Pilates classes to regular meditation sessions, we've known for a while that the Duchess of Sussex, a.k.a. Meghan Markle, leads a healthy lifestyle. So it's no surprise that despite her new title, the former actress is still passionate about incorporating wellness into her royal routine.
Markle, along with husband Prince Harry, were recently spotted visiting the health and wellness store, Ilapothecary. The Notting Hill-based boutique boasts an array of natural and organic skin products, some of which definitely tap into the "woo woo" trends, like "Cleanse Your Aura" hand wash, and "Good Vibes" diffuser reeds. There's also a Numerology glossary section on their website.
According to the Daily Express, the couple's shopping spree is just another indicator of the wellness-inspired life the newlyweds are embracing together with Markle leading the charge.
Prior to meeting the prince, Markle was enthusiastic about leading a healthy lifestyle. Inspired by her mother, a yoga instructor, Markle is a dedicated yogi, and once wrote on herh discontinued blog, The Tig, that almost anything can be solved with “yoga, the beach or a few avocados”. It's also said that she regularly meditates, a practice that Prince Harry also commits to daily.
No wonder the Daily Mail reports that the couple's new home, Frogmore Cottage, will feature a yoga room for the couple. And that's not all. The house will also feature an eco-boiler, and vegan non-toxic paint will be used in the nursery for the couple's upcoming baby.
And if the Duke and Duchess have their way, veganism won't stop at the paint in their child's room. According to Woman's Day, Markle wants to raise her baby as vegan, and apparently, the Queen isn't too thrilled with the idea that is most certainly is outside of royal protocol.
It makes sense that Markle would want to raise her offspring on a plant-based diet. It was revealed last year she eats a plant-based diet during the week.
"When I’m filming, I’m conscious of what I eat. I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends," she said. "But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things."
With Markle due to give birth at the end of the month, time will tell if Baby Sussex will be raised vegan. No matter what there's sure to be a lot of yoga and organic living in his or her future.
