Meghan Markle’s Top Travel Essentials


The former actress and soon-to-be Mrs. Prince Harry is no stranger to city-hopping. Markle used to live part-time in Los Angeles while filming in Toronto for the show Suits, and dating Prince Harry in London. With all this traveling, the soon-to-be princess has her travel essentials already packed.

  • Hand Sanitizer:

Although she does not consider herself a germaphobe, Meghan cannot afford to get sick on a plane, which is why she always keeps travel sanitizer. Think about everything we lay our hands on during a flight, from the food tray to the bathroom handle! This is a no-brainer. If you haven’t, get your travel size purell asap.

  • Neosporin:

Markle also avoids germs with this strange yet apparently very effective travel hack: coating the inside of her nostrils with Neosporin. The ointment acts as a germ barrier, and at the same time moisturizes the skin surrounding the nose.

  • Probiotics:

A high strain probiotic can always be found in the makeup kit of the soon-to-be princess. According to Markle, the combination of water and probiotics help you stay healthy, feel good, and fight jet-lag.


  •  A crossbody bag:

A crossbody bag won’t take up too much suitcase space and it’ll actually be a very practical choice to pack for any vacation. Remember, when you’re away you have to opt for functionality. Rather than packing a big heavy tote, you can get away with a smaller crossbody.

Meghan recommends choosing a crossbody bag in a neutral color to match most of your outfits so you can repeat and feel comfortable all day.

  • Scarf:

Scarves are a must in Markle’s suitcase, mainly because they double as cashmere blankets that “feel like hugs.” Easy to throw in your purse, Megan assures that a scarf not only keeps her warm but also reminds her of the feel and smell of home.

A scarf is also a great accessory to dress up a simple jeans-and-t-shirt look.


  • Flats:

Comfort comes first, so if you don’t know how many hours you’ll spend out of the hotel while on vacation, you should always pack a cute pair or two of flats with just the right amount cushion. No worse feeling than having to go back to the hotel because your feet couldn’t handle it.


  • Denim short:

There’s no need to buy all new clothes to wear on vacation, you can always pack an everyday piece -like denim shorts- and put on a white button-down shirt and a pair of flats to be vacation ready and casual at the same time.

  • Wrap dress:
