Meghan Markle is dedicated to her wellness routine, regularly practicing yoga and treating herself to acupuncture sessions, but she does have one wellbeing hack that us mere mortals can easily copy – and it could be the secret to her health.
The Duchess of Sussex reportedly eats an apple every day (in both her morning smoothie, and as a daily snack) and it turns out the humble fruit, which costs as little as 15p, is one of the healthiest snacks we can consume.

According to diet doctor Michael Mosley, who spoke about the benefits of apples on his Radio 4 podcast Just One Thing, the skin of an apple is packed with flavonoids, which help support our heart health and our cognitive function.
In fact, eating an apple a day like Prince Harry's wife does, has been shown to improve our blood pressure, help us lose weight and even lead to a longer life
Dr. Mosley also adds that eating apples daily reduces cholesterol and helps with chronic inflammation.

If that's not enough to have you chomping on an apple slice, Dr. Michael Mosley also explains that apples can help our good gut bacteria.
According to the doctor, apples contain prebiotics, which feed the good bacteria in your gut, to reduce inflammation and improve blood pressure.

Meghan credits apples with giving her a boost in the energy department, explaining to Today: "It's easy to fall into the trap of rushing for a coffee when you hit that 4 p.m. slump. But if I blend some apple, kale, spinach, lemon, and ginger in my Vitamix in the morning and bring it to work, I always find that sipping on that is a much better boost than a cup of espresso."

An apple isn't the only fruit Megan eats daily. Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand revealed in their book Finding Freedom: "Her morning ritual started with a cup of hot water and a slice of lemon, followed by her favourite breakfast of steel-cut oats (usually made with almond or soy milk) with bananas and agave syrup for sweetness."
