Meghan Markle has revealed that she makes seven breakfasts every morning for the Sussex family - and no, it's not because everyone's having seconds. 

Meghan Markle has opened up about her morning routine with her husband Prince Harry and their two young children in the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes. 

The Duchess of Sussex dropped the sixth installment of the Spotify series, entitled Good Wife/Bad Wife, Good Mom/Bad Mom, on Tuesday, much to the delight of her loyal listeners. 

Speaking with Canada's First Lady, Sophie Trudeau, the 41-year-old unpacked what it means to be both a partner and a parent in modern society. During the candid discussion with her VIP guest, Meghan shared new details about her 'morning rush' with Archie, 3, and one-year-old Lilibet at her £14 million Santa Barbara mansion

"For me, it's both monitors on for the kids, to hear them, always up with Lili, get her downstairs, then half an hour later, Archie's up." She added that she starts doing Archie's lunchbox before he's up, while simultaneously giving Lilibet a "little nibble."

Meghan also revealed the "important" morning ritual she always observes - feeding Archie, Lilibet, and Prince Harry. 

"I make breakfast for all three of them," the duchess said. "I love doing it and it just feels like the greatest way to start the morning." It remains unknown what exactly Meghan whips up for her loved ones, but it's been reported that she favors steel-cut oats with plant milk and agave for her own breakfast. Prince Harry also revealed in 2021 that the Queen surprised Archie with the sweet Christmas gift of a waffle maker, which the duchess would use to cook treats from a 'beautiful organic mix'.

Meghan also said that she makes breakfast for the Sussexes' three dogs, bringing the sunrise meal count - including hers - to a whopping number seven. The royal couple famously have one black labrador and two rescue beagles, whom Harry has previously called his 'emotional support dogs.' 

Once everyone's been satiated, it's time to leave for work and school. 

"It feels like a whirlwind," Meghan admitted, after acknowledging, "I'm sure it'll only get more chaotic as they get older."
