Tyler then started to hunt for formula on their behalf but came up empty handed. At that point, he said, he called Meghan and Harry, who were in the UK at the time, to ask if stores in the UK were also struggling.

The crisis would have impacted Meghan – not least because she herself is a mother of two. She welcomed son Archie, now three, in May 2019, followed by daughter Lilibet in June 2021.

While in conversation with Jameela Jamil and Shohreh Aghdashloo, Meghan revealed that her two young children both “love vegetables”.
Meghan is known to follow a very heathy diet
Given that Meghan is known to follow a healthy, balanced lifestyle and hails Los Angeles as the holy grail of health food in her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, it only makes sense the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to her children’s diets.
The Sussex children are growing up on Santa Barbara’s sun-drenched coastline in Montecito, where health-conscious residents are known to fuel their mind, body and soul with the town’s array of ultra-healthy restaurants and organic local produce.
Before Archie and Lilibet were born, Meghan’s makeup artist friend Daniel Martin told Gayle King: “I’m sure the baby’s gonna be raised like, definitely clean and green. Clean and green for the baby. She loves to cook. Eating organic whenever she can.”
