Kensington Palace just announced that Prince Harry’s fiancée, Meghan Markle, received her first official royal gift. Before we share what the present is, it should be noted that we are living in a time where women’s voices are finally being heard. We’re the forefront of change, if you will.
In fact, Prince Harry’s marriage to a bi-racial, divorced Hollywood actress is groundbreaking. (She’s also a feminist, a warrior for human rights and equality, an advocate for animals, a humanitarian, and a remarkable and inspiring woman.)
So when the palace revealed that Meghan Markle was given an apron, we were like, “Huh?”
Prince William received the item on behalf of the couple while touring Finland in November, and it’s believed Meghan was gifted with an apron because she’s an avid cook. We’re guessing the Finnish public took notice to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement interview, where they were cooking when Harry popped the question.
Meghan explained, “[It was] just a cozy night, it was, what we were doing? Just roasting chicken… trying to roast a chicken, and it was just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”
Although the gift might have been inspired from this story, we think they could have given the former actress something that appeals to her humanitarian side. But that won’t stop Meghan and Prince Harry from being humble recipients. On Instagram, we can see what the couple have used as their official “thank you” card.
