If you notice more people playing lawn bowls in the coming weeks, then you have Meghan Markle to thank for the ultimate endorsement. It’s been reported that, since moving to Frogmore Cottage, the Duchess of Sussex has become fascinated with the English pastime - and has even made a surprise visit to the Royal Household Bowling Club (which is situated near her home on the Queen's Windsor estate).

It’s believed Meghan garnered an interest in the game after watching it from her bedroom window, so wanted to stop by and chat to the players. According to the Sunday Express, a source said, ‘Meghan remarked to the two players how elegant the game looked.’ However, unfortunately the source did not confirm whether the royal had a try at the game herself.

Obviously, Meghan isn’t the first of the royals to pop by a bowling club, as the Queen made a visit to the Brimfield and Little Hereford Bowling Club in 2013. Brimfield player David Evans said at the time, 'She watched us play for around 30 minutes in all, there was quite a lot of pressure on us to perform in front of her. It is an amazing coincidence she turned up, I heard she has only been to the bowls green around four times in the last 18 years.' Princess Diana was also photographed playing the quaint game on various occasions.
