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!
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
