I Tried Meghan Markle’s Pre-Royal Wedding Rituals


– Meghan Markle becomes
royalty this Saturday when she marries Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Along with most of England and America, I’m obsessed with Meghan Markle. She’s just so cool. She bucks royal traditions
and wears jeans, and not pantyhose, to royal events. She also rocks that messy little bun. Plus, she’s not having
fruitcake at her wedding, which is like, good on you Meghan. You have your cake and eat it too. Meghan and I also have a ton in common. She’s getting married soon,
I’m getting married soon. Her name has a silent H,
my name as a silent H. – Follow me, but don’t talk to me. – She acts on the small screen, and I act on the even smaller screen. She’s about to become
an American princess, well, technically a duchess,
but let’s not get into that. I’m an American who’s name
means princess, in Hebrew. Okay, so maybe not like a ton in common, but we’re about to have a
whole lot more in common because I’m gonna try to do all the things Meghan does in order to
get ready for her big day. That’s right. I’m gonna go on morning runs, use her celeb endorsed face lotion, take that crazy Pilates machine class, and get a buccal massage, which is probably not
what you think it is. – Open up, just getting to
know your mouth a little bit. – Hopefully, then I can be as cool and chill a bride as Meghan Markle. Meghan says exercising keeps her grounded as well as in shape, so I
started doing what’d she do. I took a run in the park. She follows that up with
meditation, so I did that. This kinda feels like a waste of time, but then again, it’s nice to
have a little rest I think. Honestly, I started the
day feeling pretty great. It was a good idea, thanks Meghan. So after that, I tried that luxe skin gel that Meghan is rumored to use, Biotulin. It’s dubbed Botox in a bottle, and I don’t even understand
how that is possible, but I implicitly trust everything Meghan puts on her face
because she is gorgeous. (choir music) Then, I went to this wedding dress expert to try to see if I could steal Meghan’s actual bridal style for the day. I’m here with Susan Spring, and Susan is going to give us information on wedding dresses. – Whatever she wears is gonna definitely come crashing down on bridal fashion. – She couldn’t give me the inside scoop on what design Meghan had actually chosen, but she could give me her educated guess. – Meghan Markle definitely
could lean towards the bohemian, but I think that she’s going
to follow the other trend, which is beautiful classic ball gown, because Meghan’s a pseudo princess. She’ll have some sort of lace or beading. She’s gonna have a super long train because of the cathedral. Something really giant
is gonna overwhelm her, so something fitted, and
chances are, very covered. There are some companies that produce copycat dresses almost overnight. With Kate Middleton, I
must’ve gotten 15 calls from fashion magazines asking if we had a little chubby sweater, like the one that she had
worn to her evening reception. You never know what part of her outfit is gonna be the one that
people want to mimic the most. – Meghan reportedly will wear two dresses, so she could have both. But, my wedding budget only
includes room for one dress, so I’m just gonna have
to take that chance, that I will be copying the soon-to-be ubiquitous wedding style. Then, because Meghan loves to work, I got into this royal
approved Pilates class. Meghan Markle does this really intense type of Pilates called Megaformer Pilates. Well, okay, I couldn’t find exactly that, but I did find a similar
crazy machine Pilates class. Meghan Markle does a version
of the classic machine, so we’re gonna try. They kinda look medieval, don’t they? They look like medieval torture machines. What’s this machine called? – Cadillac. – The cadillac, okay. – That’s called the reformer. – And that’s the reformer. All right. It was intense. – Chest up, flow backwards, use your core. Form follows function. – Okay. – [Anthony] Then you can
know what is functional about what we’re doing. – Yeah, Meghan has balance
and serious core strength. Maybe a little too intense for me. After that, it was time to relax with a type of facial that
Meghan reportedly recommends. – Today, I’m going to be performing my signature facial
treatment, the buccal facial. – And to be clear, we’re
not taking out a belt buckle and hitting me with it, it’s different. – No, no no. Its B-U-C-C-A-L. – I am trying to prepare for my wedding the same way Meghan Markle is for hers, and she apparently loves this. – She does. A lot of other celebs love it as well. Kate Moss, J-Lo. It’s pretty popular and
it’s a natural alternative to things like Botox and fillers. – Meghan walks in, she
lies down, then what? – I start the treatment by
just looking at your skin, analyzing, see what’s going on. Then I move onto
cleansing, facial cupping, which kind of gets the lymph going. – I need to be careful,
I could fall asleep. – [Danna Voiceover] This
isn’t a fluffy facial. We’re creating a microtrauma to the skin by the repetition of the movements, so that the skin can jumpstart the production of collagen and elastin. – What are we about to–
– Now we’re gonna be doing the inner mouth massage, which is the wow factor in all of this. – The buccal facial includes
a massage in your mouth. Yeah, at first I was pretty horrified. How could Meghan do this to me? – [Danna] Open up. – What, why? – [Danna] Just getting to
know your mouth a little bit. – Feels really strange. Has anybody bit your finger? – No, never. Please don’t. – Okay, I won’t bite your finger. – I work inside and
outside simultaneously, and I’m able to really
access the tiny muscles that we really never stimulate. This area is what makes a lot of people look like they’re
frowning as we get older. – Sounds like this helps
with resting bitch face? – Exactly. – And you know what? It actually wasn’t bad. It was kind of like a
facelift without the surgery. – I made you look like you’re 20 now. – Meghan Markle is like,
36 and you’re like she– – Is she? No way.
– Yeah. She does not look it at all.
– She does not look, well, she gets the buccal facial. – There you go. Afterwards, not only was
my body tired from Pilates, but my face was tired
from the facial workout. While getting ready for her wedding, Meghan is avoiding alcohol, but she still finishes the
day with a glass of red wine in order to unwind from all that stress. Her wine blog, Tig, was named after her favorite Tignanello wine, which costs around 90 to 120 bucks. – What did you figure out? – I didn’t have that
much budget remaining, so I settled for a bottle of $10 wine, and gulped down a glass, or two, or three. Okay, so being like Meghan Markle was way harder than I thought. Sure, she looks cool and chill, but she puts in the work to get there. Then again, I’m getting ready
for a wedding for 150 people. 18.7 million people watched Prince William and Kate
Middleton’s wedding on BBC One. She will have the pressure of millions of pairs of eyes on her. I don’t, so I’m going to enjoy it, but I’ll definitely be
following her recommendation for a daily glass of wine. To Harry and Meghan. Congratulations on your wedding. (upbeat music) – Ahh. That’s good. I can’t imagine how good the $90 bottle of wine that she drinks is. I don’t have very high class taste.
