Meghan Markle Has Completely Transformed Former Party Boy Prince Harry
For those of us who remember the time when Prince Harry was the rebel royal who enjoyed games of strip billiards while downing vodka Red Bull cocktails, bounced from one fling to another, and dressed up in a Nazi uniform for Halloween, his transformation has been quite stunning. In fact, his oldest friends are “baffled” by the changes, according to a new report.
There was a time when Harry’s friends thought that he might never find “the one.” But, thanks to a mutual friend, Harry met Meghan Markle in the summer of 2016, and those fears went away. According to Vanity Fair , the Duke of Sussex recently told a friend that he couldn’t believe his luck, now that he is happily married and getting ready to become a dad for the first time.
There is no doubt that Harry is a changed man. He appears to be happier and healthier than ever. And, his new healthy-eating regimen - that includes giving up caffeine and starting his day with green juice - has left his friends in “utter shock.”
Thanks to Markle, Prince Harry has a new holistic way of life. He meditates every morning, and he practices the Eight Steps to Happiness, which come from a book given to him by Buddhist monk Kelsang Sonam.
And, the plans for Harry and Meghan’s new home, Frogmore Cottage, show that the couple is building a yoga studio because Meghan insisted they have one. The Duchess of Sussex loves hot yoga and vinyasa, and she has continued practicing yoga during her pregnancy. She has even encouraged Harry to try it.
Prince Charles is loving the fact that his youngest son has gone from party-loving prince to yogi. But, his friends can’t believe it.
“We never thought Harry would be raving about yoga, but he loves it,” one of his friends recently revealed. “He looks great, he’s lost weight, he’s super healthy, and I think he’s really happy, although I’m sure he does miss going out with some of his old mates for the occasional pint.”
Harry has also given up drinking while his wife is pregnant, and he has even quit smoking. The weight loss is from a new exercise regime, and he also wears a fitness tracker to make sure he is hitting his daily step quota.
“Harry used to love lying in, but he’s up super early with Meghan, and the first thing he says he does is a work out, then he has a green juice,” says the friend. “Meghan is definitely behind his new regimen. They both see a nutritionist and are into their supplements.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child in April.
