Here's What Meghan Markle Typically Eats In A Day

In the wake of the death of Prince Philip of Edinburgh at the age of 99 on April 9, 2021, some are speculating on whether his granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Markle will leave the Sussex family home in California to attend the funeral (via ELLE). She and her husband, Prince Harry, are expecting their second child, a girl, this summer. While it's generally considered safe to travel by air during at this stage of pregnancy (via American Pregnancy Association) it's not known whether the Duke and Duchess are willing to subject themselves to the potential stress of making the trip, which could include coping with speculation that Markle's interview with Oprah may have, in some way, hastened the Prince Consort's demise (via The Wrap).

So instead of contributing to the hum of "will they or won't they," or worse, dignifying the blame game with a response (and what could our response be other than, "seriously?"), we've decided to train our focus on Meghan Markle's exemplary style of eating. It has, after all, served her well. Moreover, it has apparently served as a positive influence for at least one member of the royal family, her husband Prince Harry (via Food Network). Here is what a day of eating with Markle typically looks like. 

Here's what Meghan Markle usually eats throughout her day

What Meghan Markle typically eats in a day is likely different now that she is pregnant with the second Sussex baby (via Town & Country) because doctors tend to advise expectant mothers to eat more of certain foods than usual and to refrain from eating certain foods they might otherwise be inclined to eat. However, when Markle is not pregnant, she has expressed a long-standing preference for a healthy, well-balanced eating style that includes lots of lean protein, veggies, and whole grains, but also the occasional splurge, which she detailed in a piece she wrote for TODAY in 2012 — an article where she also sang the praises of a good red wine. This was followed by an interview with Delish, where she confessed to a weakness for fries.

What Markle is much less likely to make room for in her diet is coffee, she told Delish. For Markle, there are much healthier ways to boost energy, including green juices. And apparently, this has rubbed off on Prince Harry, who, according to Food Network, is thought not only to have given up alcohol during Meghan's first pregnancy, but also caffeine.
