Prince Harry loses half a stone on ‘health kick’ inspired by Meghan Markle

Prince Harry is set to wed Meghan Markle in just a few weeks time, and is reportedly focussed on his health with his bride-to-be in the run up to their big day.

Everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day and it seems Prince Harry is no exception to this.

With his wedding to Meghan Markle just around the corner on May 19, the prince is said to have committed to a carb-free diet, inspired by Meghan, in an attempt to shape up fast.

His efforts would appear to be working, as Prince Harry is reported to have shed an impressive seven pounds ahead of his wedding, which will be watched by millions of people across the world.

According to the Daily Mail, Prince Harry has joined in with his future wife’s diet and exercise regime which includes regular trips to his exclusive £575-a-month gym near the couple’s Kensington Palace home.

Like Meghan, Harry is also thought to have taken up juicing and has cut out carbs and processed food for superfood ingredients like kale and quinoa.

A source told the paper: ‘Meghan has completely changed Harry’s diet. She’s got him juicing and he has lost at least half a stone, which is a lot for someone as skinny as he is.’

The source continued: ‘They have bought a top-of-the-range juicer and she has him on fruit and veg smoothies. She’s also weaning him off meat.’

Prince Harry and Meghan revealed that they would be having a lemon and elderflower wedding cake but the menu has not yet been released. Perhaps the couple will opt for healthy dishes for their guests and stick to Meghan’s preference for ‘clean eating’.

At Kate and William’s wedding in 2011, the menu championed local ingredients and included a starter of salmon and a main of roast lamb.

Prince Harry famously proposed while the couple were cooking a roast chicken, so perhaps they will pay tribute to this special moment in their wedding menu.

Following their pre-wedding health-kick, could Meghan and Harry move away from tradition and go vegan? According to an interview the former actress gave Best Health in 2015, Meghan Markle likes to eat vegan during the week, choosing vegan breakfast and vegan lunch recipes that avoid meat, fish, dairy and any other animal products.

With just a few weeks to go at least we don’t have long to wait to see the bride-and groom walk down the aisle and all the details from their big day to be revealed.

We’re excited, are you?
