As a member of Britain’s most famous family, it goes without saying that Prince Harry has probably tried his hand at some very exciting hobbies over the years.
The royals are often photographed horse riding or participating in hunts, but it turns out The Duke of Sussex has recently taken up a new hobby that’s very different from his other ones.
According to reports, the father-to-be has started meditating every day, and people think this new pastime may have been inspired by his wife, Meghan Markle .
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex undertook their first joint engagement of the year on Monday, when they headed to Birkenhead.
While there, People claims Prince Harry chatted with a 69-year-old Buddhist monk named Kelsang Sonam.
Harry is said to have revealed his daily meditation habit to the monk and so Kelsang presented him with a copy of a book called 8 Steps to Happiness.
Meghan, who recently announced she’s six months pregnant, is also known to be a big fan of meditation.
The former Suits actress once posted about it on her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig.
On the blog she admitted she had been "daunted" by the prospect of meditation at first and worried she would find it boring.
However she stuck with it and claims it made her much "happier".
She wrote: "Last week marked the one year anniversary of my relationship with meditation, something I found endlessly daunting at first (the thoughts, the distractions, the boredom of it), but soon became the quietude that rocked my world.
"I can’t put my finger on the why or the how, but I will tell you this much, for me…I am just happier. And meditation has so much to do with that."
"I urge you to give it a shot," she added. "The worst thing that can happen is that you gave yourself ten minutes of quiet in an endlessly loud world. Shhhhh……it feels good."
And this might not be the only lifestyle change the duchess has encouraged her husband to make.
It was recently reported that she’d ‘banned’ Harry from drinking alcohol, tea and coffee during her pregnancy.
A source close to the couple claimed that the duke was looking much healthier and chilled after making the changes.
