It’s a Dry January for Prince Harry, By Royal Decree of Pregnant Wife Meghan Markle
Royal daddy-to-be Prince Harry is drinking a lot more mineral water these days.
Prince Harry won't be hitting Kensington Palace's liquor cabinet anytime soon. It's been reported that the papa-to-be is honoring the dry January tradition this year, cutting out alcohol for about a month. And yes, his pregnant wife Meghan Markle might have had something to do with that.
According to so-called "royal insiders," the Duchess of Sussex has kindly requested that her husband give up liquor as she sticks to mocktails herself. Not only that: The prince has reportedly also been asked to swap out mineral water for caffeine, and he's exercising more.
This isn't the old Harry! A source told the Daily Mail: "Considering he's been a pretty brutal drinker since he was a young teenager, it's quite an achievement."
So, is sober Harry still fun at parties? One source had this diplomatic response: "He was a great laugh but it was always very full on,” the source said. “Now his new regime doesn’t make him the most entertaining party guest in the world, but he’s definitely more chilled and relaxed."
Well, if Meghan had to cut out one of her favorite foods for palace life, this only seems fair. (Kind of?)
