It looks like Prince Harry is picking up on Meghan Markle’s healthy habits. The royal has been impacted by the former Suits star’s incredibly wholesome lifestyle, which is packed with nutritious meals and fitness regimes. According to Entertainment Tonight, the 36-year-old actress has been a very positive influence for the 33-year-old Prince. Royal expert Katie Nicholl, who wrote the book Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, spoke with the show about just how much Harry and has changed because of his new love.

"There's a park outside Kensington Palace and Meghan has been seen running a circuit there. She's often in and out of the gym," Katie said. "Meghan is a complete fitness fanatic. She loves to run laps around Kensington gardens, which is just outside Kensington Palace. I'm told that she's a fan of a private members club that does intensive fitness training classes, it's called the Skinny Bitch Collective. She was introduced to it by her friend Millie Makintosh. She loves her yoga, in fact, she starts most mornings with a yoga ritual and that's rubbed off on Prince Harry."
She continued to say: "One of the things I was told by a friend of his for the book is that he's also getting into yoga. He likes to start his day with a green juice now, just like Meghan, and his friends all find this very amusing that he's turned into a bit of a fitness fanatic himself.” It looks like he’s even begun hitting the gym! "You'll often see him visiting the gym and he's given up his beloved Marlboro Lights, or at least he's smoking less and he's drinking less. So Meghan and her green LA lifestyle I think have really rubbed off on the Prince, and for the better."
