Meghan Markle has been touring Australia with Prince Harry and their unborn child. Because she's busy with their engagements, one would suspect she’d be sleeping like a log at night. However, the Duchess revealed to one of the women she met that she’s often up in the wee hours of the morning. She says it’s her pregnancy that’s keeping her awake.

Among the people Meghan met was a woman named Charlotte Waverly who had a friendly chat with the former actress. When Charlotte asked Meghan what her pregnancy was like so far, she told her it “was like having jet lag.”

Meghan explained that she would be up at 4:30 am and unable to go back to sleep. In order to relax, she revealed she does yoga.

HER MOTHER'S DAUGHTER

Meghan is a yoga enthusiast like her mother, Doria Ragland who’s a yoga instructor. Before her engagement to Harry, she opened up to Best Health’s Melissa Greer about her passion for the fitness discipline. She was quoted as saying “yoga is my thing” having learned the technique from her mom as early as she was seven.

Meghan recalled resisting it at first but her mother encouraged her to give it time. That seemed to have worked since the pregnant royal has been relying on yoga ever since.

But that’s not the only thing Meghan inherited from her mother. According to her father, Thomas Markle, his daughter got her attitude from Doria. In July, at the height of his estrangement to Meghan, Thomas blamed his ex-wife’s genes for Meghan’s lack of kindness towards him.

“Meghan got her attitude from her mother. Doria always told Meghan: ‘If they’re not doing anything for you, why should you do anything for them?'”

SEVERED TIES AND TIGHTER BONDS

Meghan and Thomas haven’t spoken since the scandal involving paparazzi photos he staged before the royal wedding. Despite his efforts to reach out and apologize, their ties seem to be permanently broken.

Meanwhile, Meghan has been leaning solely on her mother, who’s rumored to be moving to London to be close to her daughter. Doria was reported to be “very happy” when she found out about her daughter’s pregnancy. A spokesperson for Kensington Palace revealed she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.
