MEGHAN MARKLE may have accidentally given her fans a hint of what she may be gifting Prince Harry this Christmas.
The Duchess of Sussex is spending her first Christmas as a mother away from cameras and the media scrutiny. Meghan and Harry will unlikely share private details of their holidays – but the Duchess gave away what she believes being the perfect present for a boyfriend or husband many years ago.
Writing in her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, which she founded when she was an actress, Meghan urged her readers to be “creative”.
Rather than buying something he will need, Meghan said, make sure he will “enjoy” the present.
She wrote: “It’s easy to grab another t-shirt for your man — but you’ll likely steal it for PJs anyway.
“Instead, give him something creative that he’ll actually enjoy like these little gems!”

The then-Suit actress also provided examples of what would be a great and funny present.
In the list of ideas, she included a box set of colourful socks, a Crosley radio turntable, a Brookstone pocket projector for displaying photos and a wash bag.

In a statement, their spokesperson said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month.
“Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, [the couple] will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria.”
The Palace statement said the Queen was supportive the Sussexes decision.

The statement added: “This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen.”
Meghan and Harry have spent the past two Christmases with the monarch and other senior royals in Norfolk.
Their Christmas away from the Queen mirrors the decision taken in 2011 and 2016 by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William to spend the festive season with the Middletons rather than the Royal Family.
The Sussexes haven’t been seen in public since the end of November.

However, they have remained in touch with their fans and supporters on Instagram by publishing several updates in the past weeks.
Last night, Meghan and Harry shared a few pictures of themselves speaking at the Endeavour Fund earlier this year together with snaps of people supported by the association.
The charity, created by Harry to help wounded, injured and sick servicemen and servicewomen, has supported more than 6,000 people since 2012.
Meghan and Harry wrote on Instagram: “Spotlight on: Endeavour Fund.
“Today we are taking a look back at the amazing work done by the @EndeavourFund, an organisation created by The Duke of Sussex to support the Armed Forces community.

“HRH was motivated by the ambitions of wounded, injured and sick (WIS) service personnel and veterans across the UK, who wanted to use sport and adventurous activity as part of their recovery.
“And what they choose to take on is extraordinary!
“These men and women break global records and set goals for those around the world – non-disabled and disabled alike, including:
“The first amputee to cross Greenland icecap unsupported, the first triple amputee to qualify as a rescue diver, the fastest unsupported rowing time across the Atlantic, and so many more.
“The endeavours they take on are inspirational, but also have a tremendous impact on their physical, emotional and social recovery, as well as a lasting effect on the family and community around them.”
