What Time Does Meghan Markle Go to Bed Each Night?

Meghan Markle might be new to the royal family, but her royal duties kicked in as soon as she and husband Prince Harry tied the knot. Although Meghan is pregnant with her first child, she still attends royal functions and has quite a busy day. That, along with her daily morning routine, means there isn’t usually much time to sleep in. And if she’s waking up early, she’s going to bed fairly early, too. Here’s what time Meghan usually goes to sleep.

Meghan wakes up as early as 4:30 a.m. and has a specific morning routine

Believe it or not, sources close to the royal family have said Meghan wakes up as early as 4:30 a.m. While this probably isn’t the case every morning, it may happen on Meghan’s busiest days. Supposedly, soon after Meghan wakes up, she begins emailing her staff for the day. She starts this around 5:00 a.m. (They probably hardly ever wake up before Meghan has had a chance to send them an email for the day.) Plus, this way her staff knows exactly what’s on the agenda the moment they log in to their email.

She typically does yoga in the morning to relax her before a busy day

Meghan has always been a yogi, and that is one thing that likely hasn’t changed since she married into the royal family. Meghan practices yoga multiple times per week, since it helps not only with relaxation but also with staying in shape overall. She includes well-known poses such as the downward dog, the warrior two pose, and the bridge pose. Her routine is fairly easy for anyone to do, but it relaxes her just enough on those busier days.

She balances royal engagements, daily errands, and quality time with her husband each day

There is never a dull moment in Meghan’s life these days. In addition to carrying a baby, Meghan has plenty of other duties apart from her growing family. She attends various royal engagements, either alone or alongside her new husband, which require plenty of time in the limelight. Meghan always needs to look her best, smile often, and sometimes spends hours talking to different people. Plus, she likes to do her own food shopping, so she fits that into the weekly routine as well. And at the end of the day, she still tries to make time to relax with her husband. After all, their marriage is new, and neither of them would want work to get in the way of these exciting newlywed years.

Meghan usually goes to sleep no later than 11:30 p.m.

By the end of the day, Meghan is exhausted. According to Business Insider, she doesn’t usually stay up later than 11:30 p.m. But the reason Meghan even stays up that late is because if the queen is around, she must stay up until the queen goes to bed. However, when Harry and Meghan are staying alone, she can go to bed much earlier if she pleases. And for a woman who wakes up at 4:30, she probably does choose to get some shuteye long before 11:30.
