The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been minding their business for months in LA, and the fools at the Daily Mail, Express and the Sun haven’t been able to deal with that. The Mail just ran a story about how evil Meghan and poor, hapless Harry have “cost” the British taxpayer £44million. Yes, the DM apparently hired (or simply paid) a forensic auditor to review one (false) version of the Sussexes’ expenses and that’s how they came up with that number. I wonder if the forensic accountant wants to take a swing at the Duke of York’s finances, because that’s something I would genuinely want to read, rather than this unhinged racist bilge full of false data. All of this builds to one inevitable conclusion: how dare Harry and Meghan have nice things and how dare they leave us when we were hurling abuse at them constantly?
In happier news, “someone” confirmed Harry and Meghan’s anniversary activities to People Magazine. We previously heard that Meghan gave Harry a card and he gave her flowers and a ring. Not so fast! People’s sources say that M&H gave each other meaningful gifts based on cotton, which is the traditional “gift” for a second anniversary.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry go the extra mile when it comes to gift-giving! The couple, who just celebrated two years of marriage, “always give each other incredibly romantic gifts,” a source tells PEOPLE. And Meghan made her husband’s birthday last September extra special by bringing back memories of the trip they took to Africa when they first started dating in 2016.
“Last year, for Harry’s birthday, Meghan recreated their Botswana camping adventures in their backyard,” the source says. “It’s a place that means so much to them — and to Harry in particular — so Meghan wanted to bring that happy place to him on his day so she set up a tent, got sleeping bags, cooked dinner and recreated Botswana where they fell in love.”
Meghan, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, celebrated their second anniversary this week by exchanging meaningful presents. “They love to do their own take on traditional wedding gifts,” another source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. “The first anniversary was paper, and Meghan wrote out the wedding speech and had it framed for him.”
The source continues, “This year, they both gave each other gifts based on ‘cotton.’ Undoubtedly, it was a very creative and romantic gesture as all their gifts are to one another.”
According to the wedding site The Knot, “Cotton’s woven threads symbolize how you become more interconnected as time goes on and learn to be more flexible.”
This kind of thing just reminds me that it must be killing Meghan (a little bit) that she can’t post some inspo anniversary stuff on social media this year. It’s killing me too, Meghan! Just launch your new Instagram so we can see your cryptic anniversary riddles! What were the cotton gifts they gave each other? My guess is that she went for something super-personalized and likely handmade. He probably went for romantic/sexy but store-bought. Also… for the first anniversary, Meghan wrote out the wedding speech? I guess she did it in her calligraphy. That’s very romantic.
