Meghan Markle Has a Prized Possession She Plans on Giving Her ‘Daughter 1 Day’
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex doesn’t have a daughter — yet — but she’s already got a gift for her. Before marrying Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex in May 2018, and becoming part of the British royal family, Meghan shared what she plans on giving her daughter someday.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have 1 son
In October 2018, Meghan and Harry announced they were going to be parents. Meghan debuted her growing baby bump while on a royal tour of New Zealand, Tonja, Fiji, and Australia.
On May 6, 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Beaming, Harry publicly announced the news himself. Not given a title, Meghan and Harry made it clear they wanted their son to grow up out of the royal spotlight.
Two days after Archie’s birth, the couple introduced him to the world in a private photo call at Windsor Castle. Now nearing his second birthday, Archie’s made a few appearances. Meghan and Harry have shared photos of him and he even showed up at an official royal event in 2019. Most recently, Archie said Happy New Year with some help from dad, on Meghan and Harry’s Archewell Audio podcast.
Meghan Markle is saving her Cartier watch for her daughter
Meghan’s got a specific piece of jewelry she plans on giving her daughter if she ever has one. Before becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan starred on Suits.
When the legal drama hit got renewed for a third season, she marked the occasion by gifting herself a watch. But not just any timepiece. Meghan bought a $22,000 Cartier watch she told Hello in 2015 she’d “always coveted.”
“When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version,” she said, referring to Cartier’s French Tank watch.
Meghan continued, saying she intended to pass it down to her daughter.
“I had it engraved on the back, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’ and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them,” she said.
Since becoming a British royal, Meghan’s also been spotted wearing what appears to be a Cartier watch that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child
Meghan and Harry gave the world a Valentine’s Day surprise on Feb. 14, 2021. They announced they are expecting their second child. “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child,” a spokesperson for the couple said.
Along with the statement, Meghan and Harry released a black and white photo of themselves sitting in the grass at their home in Montecito, California. Meghan showed off her growing baby bump wearing a dress she’d had custom-made during her pregnancy with Archie. The pregnancy announcement comes months after Meghan revealed she experienced a miscarriage in July 2020.
As for Meghan’s due date, the couple didn’t provide specifics. When Meghan was pregnant with Archie, she and Harry made the announcement seven months before their son’s arrival. If they did something similar for the announcement of baby no. 2, there’s a chance Meghan could give birth in September 2021.
