Meghan Markle Will Be Taught Self Defense as She Gets Ready to Join Royal Family, Source Says

By

Meghan Markle is getting ready for her big royal wedding to Prince Harry.

The former Suits star might be busy with formal preparations for her big day, but she’s also taking time for herself.

ET has exclusively learned that Markle is seeking a professional martial arts trainer to teach her the basics of self-protection.

“Meghan will be trained in many different [areas], including what public places she should avoid, what she should do if she was ever approached and attacked in public and how to release herself from a situation like that,” a source tells ET, noting that the 36-year-old actress will travel with royal protection at all times.

According to the source, Markle has also consulted with one of the U.K.’s best known personal trainers “to get her in the best shape before the wedding in May.”

Meanwhile, the palace tells ET that Markle intends to travel for the next couple of months, visiting her family and friends before she settles into her new life at Kensington Palace.

Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel. For more on the happy couple, watch the video below.
