As they are preparing for their life as parents, Prince Harry and Meghan have some significant changes in their daily lives and for the better.
A bigger emphasis on her health
Meghan Markle, 37, has become more conscious of her own health, a source close to the Duchess of Sussex reports. “Her California roots are coming through,” the friend told PEOPLE.
“She’s being mindful of what she puts in her body and on her skin and even her at-home cleaning supplies … She’s hyperaware of what she’s using. She’s looking for natural things.”
Harry has also started to focus more on his wellbeing, especially his mental health. During an outing in Birkenhead in January, Harry told a Buddhist monk that he meditates every day. This habit he most likely picked from his wife, who has openly talked about her love for meditation on her now closed lifestyle blog The Tig.
The bigger the better
The soon-to-be parents recently moved from the bustling with royals Kensington Palace to something a bit quieter and peaceful in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
The couple moved earlier this month in the newly renovated five-bedroom home. This way they and the family they are about to start will have much more space and privacy, and be able to do their hobbies more regularly from yoga to cooking or just having the options of spending time outdoors.
Closer than ever
The parents-to-be have never shied away from PDAs, and with a baby on the way, the couple have grown much closer and their bond has become stronger. “This is a very happy time for Meghan and Harry,” a source told PEOPLE. “This baby has brought them even closer.”
A long deserved rest
Ever since becoming a member of the royal family in May last year, Meghan has constantly been busy with all kinds of royal engagements. But towards the end of her pregnancy, the Duchess herself admitted that she could use some time to relax. At the International Women’s Day Panel that she attended, she said that she plans to “put my feet up because that’s a deserved treat, especially in this stage of pregnancy!”
At the same time when the couple moved out of Kensington Palace, they started their own official Instagram account. One royal source says that on the new profile Harry and Meghan will post about both their work and personal moments. And it seems as a perfect place to share the first snaps of their first royal child.
