Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have sparked intentional attention with their recent engagement. Both have officially set a date of May 19th, 2018 to officially tie the knot. However, Prince Harry has unexpectedly stopped doing this one thing, in particular, that has us all guessing as to why. What is this habit you ask? Prince Harry quit smoking!
Believe it or not, the Royal has been an active smoker for many years now. Many paparazzi photos have caught the young Prince smoking a cigarette or two outside of Buckingham Palace. Perhaps it is the influence of his new fiancee that the Prince has officially decided to quit smoking entirely.
Over 7 million people die each year from tobacco use, and another 890,000 suffer from permanent damage and even death from second-hand smoking. Many are addicted to the substance, and this is no exception to royalty. Many royals have famously smoked tobacco for years, but recent interests in healthy living have many people attempting to quit the habit for good.
In the case of Prince Harry, the royal seems to be no exception. Perhaps this is the influence of his newest bride-to-be Meghan Markle, an actress with an active and healthy lifestyle. Perhaps it was the fact that with each cigarette smoked, your life expectancy is reduced by 11 minutes. Is this a fact that influenced the royal couple’s decision?
The royal couple is expected to marry each other in mid-May, which will no doubt be a marvellous fanfare of pomp and circumstance. The fact that he quit smoking is likely for his fiancee’s benefit aside from his own.
Another factor that may have contributed to the Prince finally kicking the habit is the fact that every residence and building under the royal name does not allow smoking on the premises.
At any rate, smoking is one of the more addictive and toxic habits many people struggle to quit in their daily lives. Many swear by the book The Easy Way To Stop Smoking by Allen Carr, which places you in a very simple step program to kick the habit for good. Or you can be like some people and just quit entirely on the spot. We have no idea how they get through it though. Congrats Prince Harry on your latest decision to be a healthier person!
