Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want to raise their first child on a vegan diet but the lifestyle ‘won’t be tolerated’ by the Queen, according to a royal insider.
The couple’s first child arrives any day now, and according to reports in Woman’s Day the health-conscious couple are planning for the baby to be vegan.
As one of the world’s most famous couples, the decision could have a huge influence and raise awareness for the benefits of veganism.
Meghan Markle has been influential over Prince Harry’s health and animal rights record since the couple tied the knot.
The couple moved to Frogmore Cottage in April and created a vegan nursery for their baby.
And Harry was reported to be eating less meat and drifting towards a plant-based diet to bring himself closer to Meghan’s lifestyle.
Supposedly under Meghan’s influence, Harry also didn’t take part in the traditional Boxing Day hunt this year – a favourite pastime of the Queen.
‘The Queen won’t have it’
And according to reports the Queen is unhappy with reports that the couple are set to bring up their child as vegan.
A palace source told Woman’s Day: “The Queen won’t have it.
“It’s created tense discussions between Meghan and Harry, who doesn’t want to upset his grandmother.
“He’s hoping Meghan will settle once the baby comes and he’s putting this latest polarising idea down to heightened emotions while being pregnant.
“Meghan keeps pushing the boundaries with the royals and it’s not being well received, least of all by HM.
“Meghan seems to have little regard for royal traditions but bringing the baby up as a vegan simply won’t be tolerated by the monarch.”
