Quick, Harry, read this! It’s Meghan’s Valen­tine wish list

Lin­gerie? Tick. Love notes? Tick. But she’s also wait­ing with bated breath to be dipped into a Parisian-style kiss. Yikes!

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Char­lotte Grif­fiths

IT’S a fraught de­ci­sion for any man: ex­actly which ro­man­tic gifts should you get for your new love on your first Valen­tine’s Day to­gether?

But Prince Harry should be able to get things ab­so­lutely right for his girl­friend Meghan Markle, as she has hand­ily de­scribed ex­actly what she ex­pects in an on­line ar­ti­cle.

What’s more, noth­ing on her wish list – not even the sexy lin­gerie – should stretch the bud­get of a smit­ten Prince.

In­cur­able ro­man­tic Meghan says she’s a ‘sucker for Valen­tine’s Day’ and wakes up every Fe­bru­ary 14 ‘wait­ing with bated breath to be dipped into a kiss’. Af­ter that, Harry should serve her break­fast in bed on a tray em­bossed with the words ‘All my love’ and give her a sin­gle flower and a ro­man­tic hand-writ­ten note.

Most im­por­tantly, all of this should be hap­pen­ing in Paris, as Meghan likes to feel as if she’s ‘im­mersed’ in the fa­mous 1950 photo by Robert Dois­neau of a smooching cou­ple in the City of Love.

On Fri­day, the ac­tress gushed on her blog about ‘the sea­son for heartshaped choco­lates, red roses, and lovey-dovey greet­ing cards’. But for the lowdown on what she re­ally wants, Harry should turn to an ear­lier Valen­tine’s Day gift guide in which she wrote: ‘In terms of gifts, be it break­fast in bed, a sweet love note, or a sin­gle flower... it re­ally is the thought that counts.’

First on her gift list are ‘love coupons’ – re­la­tion­ship prom­ises such as ‘Let’s get shame­lessly dressed up for high-class ro­mance’ that can be cashed in any time. Even though they needn’t cost any­thing, Meghan wrote: ‘These coupons have some real thought and cheek­i­ness to them, so they’ll make your other half giddy.’

Next is a £20 pink and white lace bra and knick­ers set by Heidi Klum, which Meghan says is ‘un­der­stated and la­dy­like’ and prefer­able to ‘in-your-face bright red push-up bras and the like’.

Also ‘la­dy­like’ is the Jo Malone Wild Blue­bell Cologne which she wears ‘re­li­giously’, and which costs £86 for a 100ml bot­tle.

She adds that the ‘All my love’ square tray for £42 by chic Amer­i­can brand Kate Spade is ‘beau­ti­ful’ and will be a daily re­minder to a woman of the part­ner who gave it to her. Last on her list is a £3 lug­gage tag car­ry­ing the leg­end ‘Some roads are not meant to be trav­eled alone’ – with the Amer­i­can spell­ing of ‘trav­eled’ – which may come in handy for the ro­man­tic ski­ing trip she and 32-year-old Harry are said to be plan­ning soon.

Meghan has also given some warn­ings as to what Harry could ex­pect from her, thanks to her list of sug­gested gifts for men. They in­clude a pil­low em­broi­dered with ‘Hello there hand­some’, a pair of Ar­gyle socks, a set of poker chips, a beer­mak­ing kit and a pair of ‘uber-cool’ LSTN Trou­ba­dour head­phones.

The price­less ad­vice comes from a post Meghan made in 2015 on her life­style blog, The Tig, named be­cause of her ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the wine Tig­nanello.

Last year, be­fore her re­la­tion­ship with Harry blos­somed, Suits star Meghan was sub­dued, telling read­ers to ‘be your own Valen­tine’. But last week she was open to ‘shar­ing a date with a spe­cial some­one’.

MEGHAN’s half-brother Tom Jr has been cleared of al­legedly threat­en­ing his girl­friend with a gun in a drunken rage last month. Two charges were dis­missed af­ter au­thor­i­ties in Ore­gon were ‘un­able to lo­cate’ 50-year-old Tom’s girl­friend Dar­lene Blount, The Mail on Sun­day has learned.

The good news: her gifts won’t cost you the Earth, Harry

The bad news: you’re get­ting a beer-mak­ing kit and socks

RO­MAN­TIC IDEAL: Meghan adores the clas­sic 1950 pic­ture of a kiss in Paris, in­set be­low, and loves to feel ‘im­mersed’ in it
