Just like Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle drinking wine

We know the mercury might be pushing 40 degrees right now but trust us, this hot drink is worth pushing through the sweats to enjoy. Meghan Markle’s take on a red wine hot chocolate combines, as she describes on her website: “two of every lady’s classic loves, wine and chocolate.”

Megan has previously expressed (on numerous occasions) her love for a vino, telling The New Potato: “God, do I love wine; a beautiful full red or a crisp white,” so it only makes sense she’s create her own version of this indulgent hot drink.

500g dark chcoclate

1 bottle red wine

2 cinnamon sticks

4 cloves
