Meghan Markle He had just met his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, just four months before his wedding, coinciding with the Duchess of Cambridge’s birthday. And, for such a special occasion, Meghan did not have it easy. If the Duchess of Cambridge once admitted having difficulties finding the right gift for the Queen on her first Christmas at her side, it is easy to imagine that Meghan had the same problems to give Kate.
The 36th birthday of the royal and the incorporation of the, at that time, actress from Suits The Royal Family were two events that joined in 2018, and, as it has been known now, Meghan had many doubts before choosing her gift for which she would soon become her sister-in-law. The gift chosen was, finally, a Smythson agenda, an English brand highly regarded for its leather goods and its large assortment of luxury stationery. This and other details have now become known thanks to the new biography, Finding Freedom, Signed by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand about the relationship of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry before and after their royal wedding and which will go on sale this month.
Although it may seem like a simple gift, an agenda from this firm can cost 400 euros, not bad to give to someone you just met.
So that agenda, in addition to a gift, became the cover letter of the future duchess of sussex, which would be followed by many other gifts and gestures of union between the two, although at that time there were no other gestures of complicity either between them or with Princess Charlotte, who at that time was only 20 months old.
Thanks to the book, they have also been able to meet other details such as the reception that Meghan had from the Royal Family, and about which he assured that “it was very welcoming and that little by little not only the institution made it feel, but also part of the family.”
