DM: Duchess Meghan ‘banned’ Harry from drinking alcohol, coffee & tea

Royals Xmas Day church

As soon as Prince Harry and then-Meghan Markle got together, he seemed to make more of an effort, in general. He looked like he lost some weight, and reportedly he started eating healthier. He was a smoker (on and off, I think) and I think he’s pretty much given that up. He seemed to spend more time at the gym too. I truly believed he went on an honest-to-God diet before the wedding too. But now “sources” claim that Meghan has “banned” Harry from enjoying some of his last vices during her pregnancy: no more tea, coffee or alcohol?

Meghan has banned Prince Harry from drinking tea and coffee, a royal insider has claimed. The reformed party animal had already reportedly given up alcohol out of sympathy for pregnant Meghan, but now he’s drinking mineral water instead of caffeine, the Sunday Express reports.

The Duke of Sussex’s new health kick meant he looked fitter and bright-eyed at Sandringham for Christmas – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by the royal family. A source told the Express: ‘Considering he’s been a pretty brutal drinker since he was a young teenager, it’s quite an achievement.’

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, has also introduced Harry to yoga and has encouraged him to exercise more, showing him an alternative way to live claims the source. The new exercise regime and lack of booze has meant that friends think the 34 year old is ‘more chilled and relaxed’.

A source said: ‘All she did was show him there’s another way to live and he’s become a huge fan. He eats well, doesn’t poison his body, exercises, does a bit of yoga and is a lot happier.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I know this will shock so many royal sources who claim that Diva Meg orders Poor Harry around constantly and “bans” him from doing everything, but a lot of men willingly give up certain food and drinks during their wives’ pregnancies. I know a lot of men give up alcohol happily in solidarity with their pregnant partners. Coffee is a bit trickier, at least for caffeine addicts, but considering Harry is British, I wonder if he was much of a coffee drinker anyway. As for cutting out tea… that doesn’t even make any sense. But why is it “banning” again? Why can’t a former “wild child/party boy” grow up, mature, and figure out that he feels better when he drinks less and does some yoga?

    Just like she banned him from hunting on Boxing Day 👀👀👀😒😒😒

    • Kebbie says:

      Yep. The DM also had the exclusive on her sequined Ralph and Russo wedding dress. We all remember how gorgeous she looked walking down the aisle covered in sequins like a show girl!

    • MoxyLady says:

      “Man in his mid 30’s discovers healthy diet and exercise. Feels great! His wife forced him that scheming controlling harpy” wtf. I am so done.

    • PrincessK says:

      Are we really going to believe everything written in the toxic Daily Mail, which can’t seem to stop turning out daft Meghan stories by the minute. ‘Meghan has banned Harry from breathing unpurified air’. The latest story they have rehashed out for their trolls is a stale Vanity Fair article. Meghan is making too much money for too many people, its really horrible.

  2. Chef Grace says:

    Allow decaf at least LOL.
    On a serious note I feel so much better now I have given up caffeine and sodas. I do yoga for my RA and it is amazing.
    I lost 48 pounds in 2 years. I am 60 but I have some muscles tone now from the yoga and small weights I use.

    • CheckThatPrivilege says:

      Good for you, and congratulations!

    • CommentingBunny says:

      Way to go! You rock!

    • Fluffy Princess says:

      That sounds so encouraging Grace! I am determined this year to cut down and eventually out my soda, but have been worried about no caffeine. So to say that you feel great anyway gives me some extra oomph to try harder this year.

      • Agirlandherdog says:

        I used a phase out approach. The carbonation in soda was the worst for me, not the caffeine so much. Although once I started drinking more soda, I did get myself hooked on caffeine. So once I cut out soda, I was having caffeine withdrawal headaches. To combat that, I started making myself a cup of black tea every morning, so I’d get the caffeine and not be tempted to turn to soda. Once I know I’ve kicked the soda habit, I’ll work on cutting the caffeine out of my tea, too.

    • Tigerlily says:

      Chef Grace that is great to hear. I also have RA & did give up coffee after I started methotrexate. Methotrexate seemed to change my taste buds, I also gave up red wine with no difficulty which no one could’ve predicted. Do you do a particular type of yoga? I tried going to a class (I used to go regularly pre RA) but I’ve had rotator cuff tears and a lot of the poses I just cannot do. I am back to one cup of coffee in the morning but that is it.

      I too am tired of the DM and their hate on Meghan. Enough already.

      • Chef Grace says:

        Thank you all. The yoga I found after Googling yoga for back pain. Then just following links. LOL
        It has helped so much. 3 pound weights and 5 pound weights help with muscle tones.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Congratulations chef grace!I am aiming to cut out diet soda of which I am a complete addict of,and I want to be free of all chemical sweetener too,add that I also want to begin some yoga and Pilates.You are my #goals#inspiration😀

    • april says:

      Awesome especially knowing you did this at 60!

    • jan90067 says:

      there is a great Yoga show on PBS called “Yoga in Practice”. It is fantastic. I do it every day; each day has another “area” that they focus on. I tape it on the DVR and then do whatever “area” I feel needs the most focus on that day. Totally recommend it!

    • ravynrobyn says:

      WOW! You’re such an inspiration, and I thoroughly believe the UNIVERSE led me to read your post @ the exact moment I needed to read it…

      I’m turning 59 at the end of the month, and had a gastric bypass in July. I had the surgery to “cure” my T2 diabetes (which happens to 90% of people who have the surgery, except for me, at least not yet 🙄). I’ve lost almost 100 lbs and truly feel amazing. My poor body has gone through so many changes in the past few months and I’m having a lot of unexpected pain. Docs say it’s pretty normal, lots of muscle galactic acid build up; body trying to realign itself and adjust to the new normal.

      Been seriously considering yoga and really worrying about my rapidly decreasing muscle tone, so I’m so excited and grateful to hear about your success.

      Because of the surgery I had to give up caffeine and carbonation for good. My absolute favorite drink in the world is Diet Dr Pepper, yikes. Before the surgery I weaned myself off of caffeine but not carbonation. So I’ve been caffeine and carbonation free over 5 months. Although I still miss both, without caffeine I’m so much calmer and less reactive that it really is worth it!!!!

      Happy New Year fellow CB’ers and much luck to everyone trying to improve their health!

    One of my New Years Resolutions is to not visit It is a toxic website filled with fake news, hate-filled bots and nasty commenters. #Next

    • Reese. says:

      Sadly some blogs continue to use it as a source for their own stories and its racist, sexist rubbish articles continues to grow bc of it.

    • Mommy2b says:

      I like that one

      • Dali says:

        Absolutely agree!!
        I saw this story on DM but only saw the headline, i did not click on the story to read it, its so stupid and ridiculous its like an insult to my intelligence if i would have to read it.
        It’s like taking stories from the national enpuire or OK/intouch magazine seriously, i mean really? I thought we are the more intelligent readers at CB but we still have to deal with DM and the sun stories every day?

      • Kat says:

        It is a shame so many blogs, including this one, continue to use it as a source for their own stories thus becoming part of the cycle that makes it so popular.

    • gingersnaps says:

      I’ve done that some time end of last year & never look back. I just wanted to make a stand and not contribute to clicks and also not be exposed to their garbage articles.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Not only that, but I can’t handle the grammatical and spelling errors in every article. It’s like they have six-year-olds writing them.

    • Ravensduaghter says:

      Well done! Their nickname is “The Daily Fail”; that should tell you all you need to know.
      As for the Mail’s assertion, Harry is a grown man and can decide for himself. Also, it would be nice if he supported her in all she has to forgo in her pregnancy.

    • Diplomanatee says:

      That’s one of my resolutions as well!!
      It quickly crossed the line from “my brain needs a break so I’ll browse here” to “I’m feeding my brain crap when I browse here”

      Hugs and best wishes to all!

    • PrincessK says:

      I totally agree and understand but as I have said before some innocent people go there and believe the lies and manipulation the truth, so it does need people like us to counter it and expose the sinister tactics being employed by DM. I have noticed that too many decent people have given up defending Meghan. Another issue is the DM always has the best picture coverage of Meghan. I detect that they are presently very hungry for another sighting of her.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    Reducing caffeine will help with his blood pressure, not that we know whether he has a problem or not. My primary care doctor seems to believe that caffeine is one of the most evil substances that people use.

    • Erinn says:

      I think that people abuse it – but I’m thinking more of the issue is that people add cream and sugar to their coffees/teas/drink soda for caffeine. I drink black coffee. If you’re double-fisting frappes and mountain dew it’s not going to be good for you. But as long as you don’t abuse it, there are definitely benefits to caffeine consumption.

      There’s been links to a reduction of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s risk as well as possible protection against heart disease, it helps the liver, can prevent gout and decrease certain cancer risks. It’s not some magical cure all, but I don’t think it’s some awful thing unless you’re drinking way too much or consuming a bunch of unhealthy foods that contain caffeine.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I have liver problems. My liver specialist told me he agrees with my primary care doctor on the caffeine.

      • Erinn says:

        And by no means am I saying that my internet opinion is more valid than your primary physician. They obviously know your medical history and what will work for you. I think it’s one of those things that CAN be beneficial, but the circumstances definitely matter – it might be a case of reducing the risk of a certain condition – but if you have the condition it could exasperate things.

        Like … I’ve had a few rounds of kidney stones between 19 and 26. I *knock on wood* haven’t had a problem in the last two years. But there’s a lot of foods that are great for health that definitely can increase the chance of stones. But at the end of the day, moderation is the important thing for most foods/drinks/whatever and knowing what interacts negatively with your own health.

    • isabelle says:

      Really? As an asthmatic I’ve ben told to drink it daily (and it very much helps) but not over do it. So much so I my Specialist/Doctor told me to pack caffeine pills in my earthquake emergency pack. Caffeine when over done can be dangerous but done is moderate amounts can be beneficial for some illnesses and disorders.

    • Kebbie says:

      I think your PC doctor is evil for suggesting I give up my caffeine fix lol but as Erinn said, a lot of studies show it can be beneficial in reasonable amounts. People pounding Red Bulls or drinking espresso all day is a different thing entirely.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I didn’t want to believe her but begrudgingly went along with her for a short time and gave up all caffeinated beverages for about two months. It wasn’t difficult for me because I don’t drink coffee, but I do drink tea and an occasional cola. I refused to give up chocolate. I was shocked when my blood pressure improved considerably. My dentist also said she could tell the difference.

    • maxine ducamp says:

      I could never ever ever give up coffee, not only for the caffeine jolt in the a.m., but for the taste and ritual of making it or sitting in a cafe. However, I haven’t had a soda (aside from the occasional ginger ale when my stomach is feeling a bit off in over 30 years. They will pry my coffee cup out of my cold dead hands.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I love my morning coffee.I will learn to drink it black and give up aspartame,but I associate my coffee ritual as just that,a ritual that my family and I share in the morning.I am trying to stay away from alcohol for a while too,but it’s something I would do sitting at a sidewalk cafe.Certain things in moderation at certain times.

    • Katie Keen says:

      “I can quit caffeine whenever I want!” LOL

      I gave up coffee a few years back. It was hard, it still is hard, and recently I started drinking green tea as a pick-me-up around 10-11 a.m.

      That said, the benefits are great. The #1 benefit is that I no longer have dark circles under my eyes! And my mood isn’t quite so up and down during the day.

      So if you’re committed and can make it through the first week of headaches and withdrawals, I highly recommend.

      • minx says:

        The difference for me was a reduction in acid reflux. I have about one cup of coffee once or twice a month and my stomach thanks me. Cutting down on alcohol helps too, of course. I love red wine and love to have it with an evening meal, which I did during the holidays. But now I haven’t for a few days and I feel more energetic and rested because I’m sleeping better.

      • Lady D says:

        Caffeine creates dark circles under your eyes? I just might quit tea if I thought it would make these dark circles disappear.

      • Elisa says:

        I stopped drinking coffee 2 days ago (!) and I’m having headaches and am not very energetic in the mornings. And I miss the ritual and the wonderful smell!
        But if my dark circles go away, it will make it easier for me to continue.
        I’m actually sleeping better, not sure whether this is because of the coffee…

    • Tiffany :) says:

      My mom has low blood pressure, so maybe that is part of my deal, but I cut out caffeine for 3 months due to a (horrible) doctor’s recommendation…and I was taking naps in the middle of the day. I was so tired all of the time, even when getting a lot of sleep!

      I only drink caffeine before 3pm, and usually tea (black or green, hot and iced). I love coffee, but it has to be really good! My office has so many perks but SH*T coffee. WHYYYYYY!?!?!?!

  5. Jax says:

    Because they need to sell the papers.

  6. Marshyellow says:

    Harry hasn’t been looking great as of late. He’s starting to look haggard & his balding has accelerated.

    • Heather says:

      Having you and your wife constantly attacked by the media and her family would do that. What would really do that is neo-nazis saying you need to be shot because you’re a race traitor. None of that is very conducive to restful sleep. As for the balding, his brother’s accelerated around this time too. That part is probably genetic, poor boys.

    • Lauren says:

      I think he looks great. He’s definitely slimmer. The balding isn’t something men can control – it just happens.

      He looks more and more like Phillip the older he gets.

    • Berry says:

      Both brothers should get the hair replacement surgery. Yes, they’ll take some flack for it, but they’ll look better.

    • Beatrice says:

      Agree. He does not look happy these days. Very few photos of him flashing that brilliant smile.

  7. Maddie23 says:

    I can’t imagine giving up tea and coffee! Good for him if he is able to!

    • Mira says:

      What are the benefits of giving up tea anyway? I’ve never thought of it as a harmful substance. I’ve always thought that there’s a lot less caffeine in tea than there is in coffee.

      When I was pregnant, my doctor recommended cutting back coffee but she made no mention of tea.

      • Jag says:

        The only issue I had with tea was when I was drinking too much of it, e.g. a gallon of homemade tea a day. I ended up with kidney stones twice. I quit cold turkey after the second time, but have a glass about once a year or so.

      • Lady D says:

        Tea has 1/3 the caffeine of coffee. I drink about 10-12 large mugs of tea every day, and have been for a couple of decades now. I haven’t seen or noticed any detriments to my health yet. Sincerely hope I don’t end up with kidney stones.

      • isabelle says:

        Tea and coffee, without adding sugar and the junk, have been proven to be very beneficial for health.

      • Erinn says:

        I’ve had kidney stones too – it’s the oxalates in it, I think. Now, supposedly green tea can reduce the risk by changing the shape of the stones (something about affecting the bonds), but who knows. Being hydrated definitely helps, though – and I know I definitely wasn’t drinking enough during the times when I had mine. They find iced tea is worse in the long run because people tend to chug it a lot more than those who drink hot tea.

    • Eliza says:

      Caffeine, tannins, sugar

      All in high volume aren’t great for you. In controlled amount theyre fine. If he’s a 8 cuppa a day guy prob too much, if 1-2 there’s nothing wrong

  8. Becks1 says:

    Maybe he has completely changed because of Meghan, or maybe he realized that he wasn’t as young as he used to be and alcohol affects him differently, he needs to exercise to feel healthy, etc. As people age their habits change, its not that unusual.

    and if the worst thing the DM can say about Meghan at the moment is that she made Harry become a healthier person – then they’re really reaching today lol.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I know, its not until you read the article that you find out that ‘she showed him another way to live’ which he has embraced. Both brothers did like a good booze up and having children often makes people reflect on their lifestyles.

      Exercise is also good for mental health, I know several people who suffer from depression who regularly go to the gym and say that it has made such a difference to them and it shows as they seem better for it.

  9. Elisabeth says:

    Why is the media so hell bent on painting Meghan like she’s some domineering psycho? They both look happy. Leave them alone. (I know they won’t though)

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I have a huge problem with banning anyone from anything. It’s just not my cup of tea lol. Not my place to parent adults, but I don’t ‘ban’ my adult sons from anything either. Damn. I take that back. I used to not ban. Now I ban political discussion until the landscape returns to some semblance of professionalism lol.

    • Peg says:

      How do you know if this story is true, the man is 34 yrs old, I’m sure he has been making decisions for a while.

    • megs283 says:

      Pretty sure Meghan hasn’t banned him from anything…

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I don’t know. But I’m liking how you took it so seriously lol. Like I don’t ban adults, but they aren’t allowed to talk politics around me.

    • sa says:

      I don’t know if Meghan “banned” Harry from anything, but I do know that Meghan does not have the power to ban Harry from drinking tea or coffee without his agreeing to be “banned.” Which, if the story is true, kind of makes it more of a request and Harry acceding to the request.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        That darn Meghan next thing you know she’ll be *blamed* for banning Harry from smoking cigarettes and that’s why he quit and is healthier,How dare she…🤣

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    Good for him for having the willpower – while I don’t have a lot of caffeine (1 or 2 at most a day only on weekdays at work) I do like my wine and I would struggle to give it up completely.

    Pilates and yoga are great – I’ve just started reformer pilates (the one on the machines) and only had a few classes so far and already I feel a difference in my posture at least. Am told that regular classes will help with my lower back issues and help release the tension of sitting at a laptop all day.

    • Meganbot2000 says:

      Reformer Pilates is the BEST!!!

    • Eliza says:

      Lower back injury and pilates reformer was amazing for me too!! It’s been years since Ive had an issue because keeping the core strong took a lot of pressure off the spine.

    • Moneypenny says:

      I agree with others–Reformer is the best! So much more effective than doing pilates on a mat.

  12. Seraphina says:

    Dis he go hunting on Boxing Day? I heard they left early.

    So tired of the stories about Megs. And so tired of hearing she ORDERED hom to do this or that. I seriously doubt he would take orders from her anyhow. There is a certain mentality these rich, well connected men have. And i don’t think one raised as a prince would do so anyhow. Maybe at first because of the shock of it but then I would assume he would quetion it. But who knows what people are really like behind closed doors.

    • Lauren says:

      He went to the Boxing Day shoot. Meghan came out for a bit, too, and sat with the Queen and Kate. So definitely take this “she banned him” with a grain of salt.

      I think Meghan has been a good influence on Harry, but I also think she’s more a symptom than a cause of the changes he’s made. A lot of men get to a point where they are just done with frat boying it up and want to settle down. Harry got to that point and met Meghan, who could help him make the changes he wanted to make. I don’t think Harry would get that sort of push to reform from his old group of friends.

    • minx says:

      I don’t believe she ordered him to do anything because I don’t believe the DM.

  13. asdf says:

    oh BULLSHIT. Like any british person would give up their tea.

  14. Lowrider says:

    Lol. Meghan named her blog after wine and Harry admitted on a radio interview he’s not a coffee drinker..

    The tabloid have no shame in making up random lies.

  15. Melissa says:

    Another dumb BS from Daily Mail. I hope Meghan banned her staff from buying the Daily Mail.

  16. AprilMay says:

    Seeing as they were both seen drinking tea in Aus after announcing the pregnancy in gonna go with this is more made up BS.

  17. Desolee says:

    When the genders are reversed people will see control and influence differently i think. My bf asked me to give up alcohol this year. Usually I drink once a month and it’s him that gets the alcohol to drink together. Plus he drinks some beer on his own, less than once a month. We talked about marriage over the holidays, right after he said he wants to get married he mentioned the alcohol thing. He’s Muslim and I’m in the process of converting. I don’t crave alcohol, I know coffee is bad for me and sometimes I imagine quitting for my bones and teeth….but tea. Please no one take my tea away.
    My bff was a big coffee lover but is now totally caffeine free because even green tea makes her painful health issue flare up. She enjoys rooibus tea dairy free lattes

    • megs283 says:

      wait…so is he giving up alcohol as well?

      • Anna says:

        I did read that it only while Meghan is pregnant.

      • Desolee says:

        Yes. But he said, if he slips up don’t follow him. So I think he is already thinking he’s going to slip. But he would like this to be our lifestyle, it’s ok for me. I do like drinking here and there but it’s something I don’t mind giving up for the right person

      • CairinaCat says:

        He better be also giving up anything he asks her to give up
        Otherwise, big red flag

      • megs283 says:

        @Desolee, as long as he is the right person. <3 Just make sure his "slips" and your "slips" are treated with the same amount of kindness.

  18. Meganbot2000 says:

    Most Brits are huge coffee drinkers. It’s a myth that Brits drink more tea than coffee. Statistically, more coffee is consumed here in the UK than tea.

    I strongly doubt that he’s given up alcohol an caffeine entirely, probably just cut back a bit. Surely everyone in a new relationship or marriage adopts certain things because of their partner’s influence? The still have a lingering obsession with Ancient Rome because of a guy I knew fifteen years ago.

  19. Rescue Cat says:

    I wouldn’t mind detoxing from caffeine. Has anyone got any tips on how to do it?

    • historybuff says:

      I quit cold turkey once in response to blood pressure problems. I had pretty serious withdrawal symptoms for two days — nausea, sweats, chills — and a lingering headache for a week. Afterwards, I felt clean and clear for a few years. It was great to wake up alert, but I missed the afternoon pick-me-up cup. I found that if I could get outside for a brisk walk around a block at that time, I could focus for the rest of the day.

      • Erinn says:

        Same! It felt like a horrible flu. I’d say definitely cut back in a more reasonable way. I managed to kick it for a solid few months at a time, but I always go back. But I generally drink only one caffeinated beverage a day, if not less, so I’m managing it much better than I used to.

    • Bobbalou says:

      To that end, I tried half high test and half decaf for awhile then switched to all decaf. No problems. Once in awhile, I’ll still order an espresso drink but request only one shot. Good luck.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      I agree with Bobbalou about trying half decaf for a while then full decaf. How much are you drinking? Just coffee or sodas or…? I’ve quit cold turkey before and didn’t have any withdrawal symptoms but I was only a 1-2 cupper per day.

      In addition to trying decaf (assuming it’s coffee) I would also recommend using distraction techniques or changing your coffee habit/ritual. So if you usually drink an afternoon cup, find something different (enjoyable not a chore) and do that during the timeframe. If you have a cup at breakfast maybe be try eating in a different chair or use a lovely plate to give you a new aesthetic for the meal. A lot of times we just do things out of habit so if you can change the surrounding activities that support the habit that might help. You could also focus on the reasons why you want to make the change so you’re thinking about something positive instead of the loss of the drink you enjoy.

      Good luck!!

    • greyate says:

      Take an excedrine migraine pill, (aspirin and caffeine) the first few days. It helps with the withdrawal period.

  20. claire says:

    I don’t believe anything from the Daily Mail unless there is photographic evidence. And even then, you have to look at the photos carefully because often times they use pictures that are several years old to “illustrate” a particular story and support their agenda.

  21. Who ARE These People? says:

    Doubtless this story is all made up but my husband gave up soda, especially caffeinated soda, for parenthood – and we adopted. Didn’t want it in the house around kids.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      That’s really great!! Soda is sooo bad. I feel really lucky that my mom never allowed us to have it as children so I never developed a craving for it and now never drink it as an adult. Your kids will thank you one day (if they haven’t already)!

  22. Eliza says:

    Tea has caffeine. Especially a strong steeped tea (as served in UK). Highly addictive from caffeine but can also be addictive from the sugar (body gets dependent on that boost).

    Remember there’s no caffeine free “teas”, I forgot the celeb that had a nitpick fit, that the herbal “teas” are not teas but tisanes.

    • Desolee says:

      In French it’s tisane, in American English it’s “herbal tea” even though it doesn’t contain any tea leaves

  23. Lisa says:

    Grain of salt. Harry is grown and makes his own decisions same as Meghan.

  24. Charfromdarock says:

    Or maybe he’s just maturing 🤷‍♀️

    I gave up coffee last June. I was a 3-4 large mug a day drinker and it was causing health issues.

    I quit cold turkey and it was brutal for a week with headaches and irritability.

    I still drink decaf occasionally or a tea or some dark chocolate but I feel much better without it.

  25. gm says:

    Again, probably media making it up (Doria going to Sandringham for Christmas, she won’t get pregnant before tour because of Zika risk). Even if it was true, it’s pretty boring compared to the duchess feud story which was probably made up too. They were trying with the William ignoring her, but I guess that story did not get enough clicks. I will predict some upcoming stories, Harry is upset they are having a boy (based on the one time he said something about a girl) , Harry and Meghan on outs because she wants to have natural childbirth at home, Harry finds her unattractive as she gets larger or conversely she feels unattractive, or pregnancy scare! headline, the usual pregnancy gossip that is usually untrue.

    • Heather says:

      I agree. I’m waiting for the Duchess in Pregnancy Emergency! stories. Where in the stories there’s no emergency, just some comments from OBs that don’t treat her that pregnancy after 35 “can be” complicated.

  26. DML says:

    Fake news garbage. Meghan enjoyed her drinks whether it be wine or coffee or tea….or whatever. I seriously doubt she is telling Harry to not enjoy as he wishes, however, he probably has cut back because that is what you do when the person you spend the most time with and love has to too.

  27. Elaine says:

    As others pointed out, what is the point of repeating made up stories from horrible sources everyday? There must be stories with legitimate sources you could discuss… it’s okay if they’re not about Meghan. You’re just perpetuating and validating these fake stories.

  28. tori says:

    Well if true he certainly looks worse for wear. I’ve never seen him look so miserable and his hair is disappearing rapidly. He isn’t the most attractive guy to begin with. Stress!

    • Lady D says:

      The police arrested three wanna-be nazis on their way to ‘liberate’ Harry from his mixed-race marriage. He’s probably worried sick about the psychos out there wanting to harm his wife, add in geriatric pregnancy worries, and a few back-stabbing family members that don’t seem to wish him well at all, and he’s probably dealing with a lot of stress. Some of the comments made about his wife are both sick and scary. I saw one comment about the Christmas walk pictures that said, “it sickened me to watch her touch our future queen’s back.” Wtf?
      Then there’s the butthurt ex-party friends all howling because he isn’t spending time with them, an uncle in an all out rage because they ‘ruined’ his daughter’s wedding, and columnists constantly telling him publicly that he made the wrong choice in not making an English rose his wife. I’m surprised the guy has any hair at all.

      • tori says:

        I don’t care about all the garbage you’ve referenced. He looks miserable and unhappy. I have no idea why, its just what I see and my humble opinion. He must have known the press would attack mercilessly. Look at his Mother. Plus MM trash family didn’t help.

    • arsesds73 says:

      I think he looks fine to be honest. Everyone will have different perceptions about how someone looks. He is definitely losing hair for sure, but I don’t think he is as miserable, maybe a bit sad with regards to the negativity directed at his wife – I mean who wouldn’t be?

    • Olenna says:

      Oh, the Harry looks bad saga…again. To quote PW (that’s Herman, not Willy), “I love that story”, /s. You must have a 24/7 live feed of this dude for you to keep repeating this observation.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      LOL. There’s a certain contingent of royal watchers who have been hellbent on pushing this “Harry looks SO miserable!” claim. Please, do tell more about how awfully unhappy he must look to you.

  29. Rosie says:

    Maybe he needed to give up alcohol. He hasn’t always made the best choices when under the influence. I’m the same and I quit booze months ago. Actually not the same, I’ve never played naked billiards!! Anyway, I don’t believe she’s banned him, just maybe a good influence on him.

  30. Harryg says:

    Caffeine is very hard on your body. I avoid it.

  31. mtam says:

    So wait, the article tries to paint her as a controling wife by saying she’s “banning” him from these things, but in the article it clearly says he willingly gave it up, and that he’s much better off for it. So, I really don’t get the point? I mean I get with the headline that they’re trying to punch down on Megan, but then they write and article that makes it sound she’s basically the best thing that ever happened to him.

  32. Pokello says:

    Something is eating up the duchess of Cambridge,she has got so thin,hope William is not messing up,men are not easy

    • PrincessK says:

      She slimmed herself silly so that she can fit into her old clothes and then DM can keep calling her thrifty Kate.

  33. MrsBeast says:

    This story reeks of BS. I don’t think it is legit. Besides, pregnant women can have coffee and tea!

    • megs283 says:

      exxaccctly. I hate those articles that act like coffee/tea is off-limits for pregnant women.

  34. Diplomanatee says:

    It might be a bit late in the day for anyone to see this but… we really owe Meghan a slow clap right now.

    Here’s my theory, based on my own observations:
    Ever since the “rumors of dating” articles came out, it was clear Meghan and her team had a solid SEO (search engine optimization) strategy. Those first articles (I’m having a hard time finding an example, but I’m not surprised) found a way to mention them both by name, and also throw in phrases like “she has engaged in humanitarian activities…”, what that does is mention “Harry”, “Meghan” and “engaged” in the same article, so whenever anyone searched for those words online, they’d end up reading an article listing the virtuous of this relatively unknown Markle girl.

    For many out there this might sound like she was being manipulative or taking advantage of a situation. For anyone in the business, this is just a regular Tuesday, a little-known actress trying to make the most of an uncertain situation.

    My theory is she’s doing the same thing now with what appear to be leaks, she’s throwing in health-related keywords in the mix. Why? I think she’s being smart enough to make sure she has an income besides the one she may or may not get from the Royal Family. Right now she’s tight with the Queen, and she’s tight with Charles, but she’s famously not very popular with William, so, once again, she’s making the most of an uncertain situation. I think she’s aiming to be some sort of undercover influencer, where she can charge a fee for being photographed promoting brands “candidly”.

    As a fellow International Relations major turned fundraiser in a digital era, I have nothing but major respect for the hustle and smarts she’s displayed from day one. So, again, here’s a sincere slow clap (with mouth agape) to you, Meghan Markle!

    • Olenna says:

      Yep, that’s Meghan or Meghan Mastermind, if you will, a lone operative running covert strategic communications ops out of Nottingham Cottage while Jason and crew struggle daily with just keeping up with the KP social media accounts. That girl is sump’n else!

    • Peg says:

      I’m speechless, that was too wack for me. 👽👽

      • Diplomanatee says:

        Just my opinion as someone with a professional background in the area, so… you can take that as you will.

    • Dixiebells says:

      Is there any chance this is sarcasm? Because if not it is bananas. The most I will buy about Meghan managing her own PR and image(and I don’t doubt that she does it) is that she knows to stay polished, smiling, and stay above the fray. She knows she’s playing the long game.

      But why on earth would steering search engines to health related key words help? All it’s done is created another PR story about her being demanding. So I don’t know if I join your strange mouth agape slow clapping at her supposed master manipulation.

      And famously doesn’t get along with William? Says who? Commenters on gossip websites? Video of him touching his scarf? That’s not what famous means. It’s just one of a million rumors about her.

    • PrincessK says:

      @Diplomanatee… ridiculous I am LMAO! 😆

    I, too, have banned my husband from drinking. No wait, that was his increasingly severe hangovers as he approached 40.
