Meghan Markle Confesses She Can’t Do This Sport—But She Wants Her Kids to Learn it

Just like their dad, Prince Harry

Whether we’re talking about Prince William’s love for soccer (pardon us, football) or Kate Middleton’s impressive rugby skills, it’s clear the British royal family members have a knack for sports.

And recently, while attending an Invictus Games party in Düsseldorf, Germany, Meghan Markle, 42, revealed the one sport she wants her two children, Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2, to try in the future.

The Suits alum accompanied her husband, Prince Harry, 39, to multiple events that took place during the Invictus Games, a sporting tournament which the royal spare launched in 2014. During a Games party, the Duchess of Sussex apparently revealed to Bridget Bridge (aka wife of an IG25 board member) that she wants her two kids to learn how to ski—just like their dad.

“Meghan said that she really wanted her children to learn to ski and that maybe Whistler [Canada, the location of the next Invictus Games] was the ideal place. She said she didn’t ski, so we told her they must come and learn,” Bridge exclusively revealed to The Mirror

It would be a full circle moment to see Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet take up a sport their father has enjoyed since he was little. Back in 1991, Prince Harry and his older brother, Prince William, went on a ski trip with their mom, Princess Diana

In a photo (see below), the three of them can be seen riding a ski lift while wrapped up in snow gear.

The late Princess of Wales also had a deep love for the activity herself. Back in August 2022, we stumbled upon throwback pics of Diana having fun on a ski trip in Switzerland with her sister-in-law, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson, in 1988.

We would love to see pics of Prince Harry teaching his kids how to ski.
