The Duchess of Sussex is a firm believer in keeping her mind and body healthy and has several health commandments that she lives by. Meghan has often spoken about the benefits of yoga – her mum Doria Ragland was a yoga instructor after all – and is even reported to have had a yoga studio built into Frogmore Cottage, the Windsor residence where she previously lived with husband Prince Harry and baby son Archie Harrison.

Teasing the class when describing the beauty section of the magazine, Meghan said it's something which "puts its energy towards internal beauty, celebrating the power of breathing and meditation, and [includes] a favourite workout that urges you to use your heart as much as your core."
