How are Kate and Meghan staying fit during the coronavirus lock-down?


From the Queen & Duchess Kate to former Duchess, Meghan, the royals are active even during the lockdown.

The members of the royal family and Meghan Markle are very much active during COVID-19 lockdown.

The royals have remained at their respective homes, carrying out their engagements remotely instead. The Royal UK takes a look at how the Queen and her family may be using their time to stay active with their favourite hobbies.

The Duchess of Cambridge

Kate is naturally sporty and was an athlete while at school. No doubt Catherine will let off some steam with a daily run or walk. The Cambridges are staying at their Norfolk home. Anmer Hall has a swimming pool and a tennis court. Kate has been taking tennis coaching at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in Fulham.

The Duchess recently spoke about parenting on Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast. She was quoted saying that she loves being outdoors with her family. She further added: “As children, we spent a lot of time outside and it’s something I’m really passionate about. I think it’s so great for physical and mental wellbeing.

Meghan Markle

As Prince Harry and Meghan settle into their new life in LA, no doubt the Duchess will try and fit in some yoga. In an interview with Best Health in 2016, Meghan told that her interest came from her close relationship with her mother, Doria Ragland.

“Yoga is definitely my thing,” she said. “My mum is a yoga instructor, and I started doing yoga with her when I was seven.” She continued: “I was very resistant as a kid, but she said, ‘Flower, you will find your practice – just give it time”.

Queen Elizabeth

Her Majesty still indulges in her passion for horse riding. She had her first riding tutoring at the age of three. She was given her first pony, a Shetland mare named Peggy by her grandfather King George V, on her fourth birthday.
