Meghan Markle will employ the ancient Chinese technique feng shui when decorating her new home at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
Feng shui – literally meaning ‘wind-water’ – is influential in many parts of Asia, where people adjust their lives and carefully position items in offices and homes to maximise their luck and wealth.
The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly a fan of the 3,500-year-old philosophy, which says that all events are dictated by the varying balances in the five elements that make up the universe: metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

She will incorporate its ideas when renovating Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, reports The Sun.
Meghan previously noted the merits of feng shui on her new-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, writing: ‘The ancient Chinese art of feng shui has been practised for nearly 3,000 years.

‘With so many layers of tradition and technicality, it may seem daunting to introduce to your home aesthetic and ethos.
‘However, the core of feng shui is about making you feel comfortable and at ease in your home so that it can translate into every aspect of your life — so fret not.’
Examples of feng shui that the Duchess might employ include positioning the bed so that your sleeping direction faces the door, keeping all clutter out of sight and allowing as much natural light as possible.
She and Prince Harry will move into the Grade II-listed cottage later this year with their new baby who is due in the at the end of April or beginning of May.
The couple’s builders plan to add fireplaces, staircases, and a floating floor, but will keep the original floorboards and shutters.
As well new additions, the royal couple are also set to go green and install a £50,000 energy unit that will provide heat, hot water and electricity.
The cottage is just 200 yards from the publicly accessible Long Walk, meaning it will require upgrades to ensure the family have privacy and security.

Last month it emerged that Meghan had hired the top designer of the Soho House clubs, Vicky Charles, to oversee the renovations.
Ms Charles has overseen the design of Soho House branches in Malibu, Chicago and Barcelona.
She has also worked with the Beckhams and George and Amal Clooney, who are friends of Harry and Meghan.
