This is Meghan Markle's go-to travel bag so you can zip through the airport

Meghan Markle has been traveling a lot lately as she prepares to join the British royal family at her wedding to Prince Harry. But this isn't a new hobby for the soon-to-be royal. The soon-to-be royal actress started the old lifestyle website The Tig , which regularly documents her guides to cities around the world, along with advice on how to travel to them most comfortably. Although The Tig was shut down in April 2017, the archives remain on the web - and from them, we can gain insight into Markle's likes, dislikes, interests and what kind of hand sanitizer she uses. For example: Scroll through The Tig archives to learn about Meghan Markle's favorite travel essentials and why.

Everyone has essential items in their carry-on luggage. Maybe a bag of carrots to munch on during the flight. Maybe it's a neck pillow. Maybe it’s the pile of gossip magazines you read endlessly for off-road entertainment. “Necessary” is a personal word, and definitely a subjective word. But we can all learn a thing or two from other people's must-haves.

Markle is no stranger to traveling between cities. Even before she was engaged to Prince Harry, the former actress filmed her TV series Suits in Toronto, lived part-time in Los Angeles, and dated Harry, who was based in London. Additionally, in their first interview since their engagement, the couple revealed that their third date was in Africa. Only a travel expert can pull off such an appointment with ease.

Needless to say, she's no novice when it comes to hitting the road. She might know a thing or two about what you have to pack.

Germs run rampant on airplanes, and considering how often you travel by plane, the last thing you want to do is get sick. Markle is naturally one step ahead. She admitted on The Tig , "I'm not a germaphobe, but when I get on a plane I always use some quick hand wipes or travel sanitizing spray to wipe down everything: the little TV, the serving tray and everything. "Sure, the person next to you may look askance at you, but by the end of the flight, you'll be the one whistling and not sniffling. ” She lists plant-based cleaning brand Murchison-Hume as her favorite hygienic travel companion.
