Prince Harry gives up smoking for Meghan Markle

Prince Harry may have settled down and become a responsible pillar of the British monarchy like his brother, but that doesn’t mean we don’t remember his rip-roaring twenties. We won’t soon forget those wild years of partying, naked photos and light recreational drug use (yes, really). Though he’s certainly cleaned up his image in the past few years, one vice from his party days has seemed to have remained—at least until he met Meghan Markle. 

Yup , we’re talking about smoking. 

The Daily Mail reported in 2016 that Harry has been an avid smoker since his early teens, smoking up to a pack a day at some points in his life (despite a ban at Buckingham Palace). However, he has since quit and all it took was a health-conscious partner (and possibly true love?). 

A friend of the couple recently told The Daily Mail that Harry is done with the habit for good because of Markle’s influence.  

“Harry has promised no smoking at all at home. It’s not nice for Meghan as a non-smoker,” the source tells The Daily Mail. “So there’s no more hanging out of the window for a quick puff. Harry has quit for Meghan.”

Good on ya, Meghan, keeping your man healthy. We can’t help but wonder if the smoking was a deal-breaker for Meghan. 

Would smoking ruin a relationship for you (even if your partner was a royal)? 

Meghan Markle is no stranger to compromises in this whirlwind relationship. She made the decision to stop acting, pack up her life and move to the U.K. (she is set to become a U.K. citizen after marriage). She also put an end to her lifestyle blog, The Tig, earlier this year.

Have you ever given up a habit—health-related or otherwise—for a partner? Have you made a request of someone else?
