Meghan Markle's First Royal Gift Is Something You Probably Already Own
Meghan Markle may not be an official member of the royal family just yet, but that doesn’t mean she can’t reap the benefits.
According to People, the bride-to-be is already receiving official royal gifts. But, don’t let your imagination run away with you, as the first official gift she received is actually something you probably already own.
Each January, the royal family releases a list of all the gifts they received throughout the last calendar year. On this year’s list was one small gift for Meghan: an apron.
The small but meaningful gift was actually given to Prince William to give to Meghan while he was visiting Finland just days after Harry and Meghan announced their engagement. And really, it’s a heartfelt present as Meghan previously explained that she and Harry got engaged while cooking together in their cottage kitchen.
Of course, Meghan wasn’t the only member of the family to receive gifts last year. Prince George and Princess Charlotte both received a number of gifts including several books, toy trains, and candies. Kate, on the other hand, was gifted more fashionable items like dresses, earrings, and a handbag, all given while she was visiting Poland and Germany over the summer. Prince William also nabbed a few books and a vase on the trip.
And no royal gift list would be complete without noting the extraordinary things given to the Queen in 2017. Her majesty was gifted a few truly priceless items, including the Union Jack flag that Major Tim Peake, the first British citizen to be a part of the crew in the International Space Station, kept in his space suit. She was also given a few photographs of Aberdeenshire, Scotland, home to her summer retreat in Balmoral, which were shot from space by the governor-general designate of Canada, Madame Julie Payette.
But still, an apron is pretty cool, right?
