Meghan Markle’s ‘Californian health habits’ are rubbing off on Prince Harry who is ‘really taking to the West Coast lifestyle’, a source has claimed.
The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, are currently living in a £10 million Vancouver Island mansion as they plan their new life outside of The Firm, having stepped back from royal duties in January.
A source told ET that the Duke has quickly taken to the relaxed pace of life on the West Coast and that yoga-loving Meghan’s ‘healthy habits are rubbing off on Prince Harry’.
They also revealed the royal has followed his wife’s lead and taken an interest in cooking.

Native Californian Meghan has ‘always been very health-conscious’, according to the source.
But they said her habits are now ‘rubbing off’ on Prince Harry, as the couple adapt to life on the West Coast.
The Duke and Duchess have been residing in the opulent £10million [$14million] Vancouver Island mansion they have used since American Thanksgiving last year.
The source said while Meghan was cooking for the family, Prince Harry had also picking up his wife’s favourite hobby and enjoying a healthier diet as a result.

They are said to be ‘loving’ their life in Canada now they have made their decision to step back from royal duty.
The source added: ‘Being able to hike with friends, Archie, and their dogs in Canada is a simple pleasure that they love.’
Earlier this week, it emerged the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have axed all 15 of their staff and closed their Buckingham Palace office.
It is the surest sign yet that the couple and their son Archie, who turns one in May, are unlikely ever to return to the UK to live.

The couple also paid a visit to the prestigious Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
Their decision to work with academics at a university in California increased speculation about whether the couple plans to relocate to the West Coast permanently.
A source previously told People magazine how the Duke and Duchess felt ‘a weight had been lifted off their shoulders’ after deciding to step back from the royal family.
Another source revealed how quickly the couple had adapted to life outside Britain, saying: ‘They are enjoying living a quiet life…They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.’

They said they’d been enjoying taking long walks and practicing yoga together.
Last month, photographs showed the Duchess carrying her son as she walked through a park near the enormous mansion while wrangling her black Labrador Oz and beagle Guy.
She and Harry took a hike there on New Year’s Day, before he flew back to London to sort out the details of their split from the Royal Family.
It is now expected they will spend most of their time in North America, meaning Archie will have little contact with his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis or his aunt and uncle, Kate Middleton, 38, and Prince William, 37.
