Recently, Prince Harry’s lady love, Suits star and honorary Canadian Meghan Markle is said to have met the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Charlotte in London. The actress reportedly gifted Kate a leather-bound dream journal for her 35th birthday, and while Kate reportedly “loved” the perfectly sweet and tasteful journal, we dreamed up five other things she could have put a bow on for less than the price of a Smythson notebook (’cause we’re betting she shelled out for more than a Moleskine).
1. A pair of jazzy Wolford stockings to shake up her nude tight wardrobe
Because Kate has never met a nude stocking she didn’t love and this pair is just a little bit playful while still being totally classy.
2. A piece from her Reitmans collection
The luxe-for-less cashmere poncho would be perfect for traipsing around the English countryside but the budding designer will have to call in a favour to snag one of these—her collection sold out online not long after news of her romance with the redheaded prince broke.
3. A fancy calligraphy pen
OK, so this one could actually go alongside a journal but a chic calligraphy pen is a nod to Meghan’s past (she reportedly made ends meet at the beginning of her acting career by hand-addressing invitations, like Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding invites!).
4. A rustic Hudson’s Bay blanket for Will and Kate’s Norfolk country estate
This classic blanket is a cute little wink to the country Meghan calls home.
5. A box set of the best royal movies
So they can let their princes enjoy some brotherly bonding and have a girls’ movie night in with popcorn and vino.
