She travelled from England to Australia on the night of Princess Eugenie’s wedding, and she’s pregnant with her first child.

But Meghan Markle proved she’s not slowing down anytime soon by revealing that she was up at 4:30am this morning and tried to beat her jetlag with yoga.

The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex, who visited Bondi Beach this morning to meet a local surfing community group and greet members of the public, told locals she was working out before the sun came up.

“She was saying yoga is what she does. It’s her outlet,” Kavie Jarrott, from surfing community group OneWave, told Yahoo Lifestyle.

“So at 4:30 in the morning she woke up. She was jetlagged and she just got up, did her yoga in the house and that was enough to give her the energy to get her through the day.”

Charlotte Bodell, who lives in Sydney, told Yahoo Lifestyle that Meghan told her the exact same thing.

“With the jetlag at the moment she’s up at 4:30am and she said what I do, I do yoga straight away,” she said.

“She hasn’t just got jetlag but she’s got a beautiful baby on the way as well.”

Lisa Nicholls, who drove for seven hours to meet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, said the Duchess told her yoga helps her with ‘the mindfulness of trying to push anything bad out of your mind and breathing’.

Back in 2015, Megan gushed about her love of yoga with Best Health magazine, saying she practices it a couple of times a week.

“Yoga is my thing. My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven,” she said at the time.

“At this moment in my life, I would define yoga as the balance between desiring more and being content with what is.”

Meghan’s former Instagram page was also scattered with images of her contorting her body into mind-boggling yoga poses.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also took part in the ‘Fluro Friday’ session at Bondi Beach today, which saw people of all ages share their experiences of mental health issues
