Prince Harry's wife follows a committed supplement routine, and the school's website states: "Students learn about proper nutrition, physical fitness and hygiene as essentials to health and well-being."

The Duchess is also a keen exercise fan, dabbling in everything from hiking to Pilates to boxing – and her high school likely shaped this love of fitness.

So strong is Meghan's passion for wellbeing, she invested in plant-powered latte brand Clevr Blends in 2020.

Clevr Blends calls itself a 'self-care company' and sells mushroom-based powders that you make coffee and smoothies from for a daily health hit.

The supplements Meghan invested in are powdered coffees that combine medicinal mushrooms, adaptogens and probiotics, including Lion's Mane and reishi, both of which make some pretty serious health claims, including soothing stress and anxiety and aiding mental clarity.

Meghan even turned Oprah onto mushroom supplements, sending the presenter a bundle at Christmas, prompting Oprah to call the powders her "new drink of choice for the morning and night."
