But it seems Meghan already has some tips to avoid getting ill while travelling.

In an unearthed post on her blog The Tig – which was taken down when she began dating Harry – in 2016, Meghan gave her top tips for “self-care” on a plane.

According to the Express, she wrote at the time: “If you’ve been tracking my social media of late, you’ll notice that not a week goes by without me finding my derrière on a plane.

“Yes, it’s fun, and yes it’s purpose-driven and yes it can sometimes feel quite glamorous; but jet-setting (for work or pleasure) comes with its own set of complications.

“The foremost issue is self-care.”

She continued: “A dear friend of mine once told me that Leonardo DiCaprio gave her an excellent travel tip.

“I know – I could have written an entire post on this conversation alone.

“What is it, you ask? Evidently, he said that to avoid getting sick on planes, he puts a little Neosporin [an antibiotic ointment which aims to decrease the risk of infection] on a cotton swab and coats the inside of his nostrils.

“Not only does it create a barrier for germs, it also lubricates the skin in the nose.

“That’s important because when the skin cracks, germs can come a-running in, so the coating of the Neosporin doubly protects you.”
