She said: "Meghan told me that pregnancy was like having jet lag. She said she was up up at 4.30am this morning doing yoga in her room as she couldn't sleep. 

"It’s a bit of a double whammy for her, she said, as she has both the baby and the jet lag to contend with.

"We both talked about how you feel jet lagged even though you have not travelled anywhere.

"Even in her jet lag she got up to do yoga this morning at 4.30. Physical activity like yoga and surfing is so good for healing your mind."
