The travel essentials Meghan Markle never flies without.


When it comes to jet-setting, Meghan is a seasoned pro. By spending so much time flying, she now knows what are some of those things that are essential for her.

 The Duchess of Sussex’s style of flight routine may have changed over the years, but her taste for travel hasn’t.

With so many miles on her passport, it’s no surprise that the new royal bride has become something of a travel expert. She is familiar with both the glamorous ups and the disappointing downs of globetrotting.

So how does Meghan manage to stay happy and healthy while between time zones?

With a few tips from celebrity friends and a curated collection of in-flight must-haves. We have some things, that are most important for Meghan Markle when she is flying.

Do some cleanup.

No one can accuse Meghan of not taking hygiene seriously. In a candid interview, few years ago, the Duchess said:-

“I’m no germophobe, but when I get on a plane I always use some quick hand wipes or a travel sanitizer spray to wipe it all down. That includes the little TV, the service tray, and all the buttons around your seat”.

For maximum seat sanitation, her go-to was the Murchison-Hume Travel Spray Essentials set. Although, it is now sadly unavailable. 

Protect yourself. 

The Duchess of Sussex’s most unusual travel tip comes from an unexpected source. Markle once told:-

“A dear friend of mine once told me that Leonardo DiCaprio gave her an excellent travel tip. Evidently, he said that to avoid getting sick on planes, he puts a little Neosporin on a cotton swab and coats the inside of his nostrils”.

“Not only does it create a barrier for germs, it also lubricates the skin in the nose. And that’s important because when the skin cracks, germs can come a running in, so the coating of the Neosporin doubly protects you”.

While it’s somehow hard to image the flawlessly fashionable Duchess sticking antibacterial ointment up her nose, Leo’s not alone on this oddball travel hack. A quick internet search reveals hundreds of threads by fellow nose-swabbing fans. 

Grab a portable bag. 

This is Meghan Markle’s term for one of her other in-flight essentials, a scarf. Meghan added in her interview that:-

“This one thing has become invaluable to me when catching some sleep on a flight, or feeling swaddled in a hotel room. Throw it in your purse or backpack”.

“No matter how far you travel, you will always feel comforted both on and off the plane with something that feels and smells like home”. Some cozy options from Made-well were at the top of her list.
