Prior to moving to England to be with Prince Harry, Meghan was an avid ice hockey fan, with an Instagram post by Meghan's friend Heather Dorak revealing that the pair used to attend matches together.

Ice hockey is a national pastime in Canada, so it makes sense that Meghan was a fan of the sport when she lived in Vancouver while filming Suits, but the Canadian city wasn’t the only place Meghan enjoyed ice hockey.

She was also pictured watching a game in 2013 in New York at Madison Square Gardens, proving a long-term passion for the sport.

Meghan has shown herself to be a committed fan of watching sport, no matter the game. She's been by the side of the pitch for many of Prince Harry's recent polo matches, even referring to herself as a PWife (polo wife).
