The royal couple, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, seem to be giving themselves a meager gift for the anniversary - what is behind it.
- US media reports details of how Duchess Meghan * and Prince Harry * spent their second wedding anniversary.
- Surprising for many: The Royals * donated almost nothing - even for non-royal conditions.
- According to insiders , there are good reasons for this .
Los Angeles - Since Duchess Meghan * and Prince Harry have turned their backs on Britain and are now residing near Hollywood * , it is not Sun , Daily Mail or Mirror who first want to know the details of their second wedding anniversary. But the American counterparts US Weekly and People - they are spatially closer to the action.
And so the US Weekly newspaper refers to an unnamed source when it reports what the two gave each other on their second wedding anniversary (May 19): “Meghan made a card for Harry and wrote an emotional love message by hand. Harry surprised her with a huge bouquet of roses and a ring that she thought was awesome. ”
Royals: Meghan and Harry are involved in the corona crisis
A map? Roses? A ring? It sounds like an 08-15 couple could celebrate their anniversary this way. Isn't there a bit more pomp in royal couples? The insider explains: "The most important thing for the two is that they can enjoy their company without interference from outside." Of course, their son Archie * was also part of this company on the wedding day .
So love is more important than anything material. And according to the report, Meghan and Harry not only give each other, but also others. So the two now worked together with a meal table for the needy in Los Angeles. During the corona pandemic , which is particularly devastating in the United States, the couple wanted to “create community spirit in the community and worldwide”.
Meghan & Harry: Gifts made of paper and cotton - that's the reason
Prince Harry recently praised the US youth aid organization "OnSide's Youth Zones" in the corona crisis. "You guys have the strength to get through this," he says. Meghan is currently enjoying being away from the royal limelight and using the time to get to know non-profit organizations such as "Crisis Text Line" or "Smart Works". In addition, she has contact with her mother, Doria Ragland.
Wedding gifts at Meghan: creative and romantic
But even before the Corona crisis, Meghan and Harry were stubborn about love gifts, People wants to know. On their first wedding day, all gifts were made of paper only! For example, Meghan wrote the wedding speech down by hand and framed it for Harry. "They like to give traditional wedding anniversary gifts their own handwriting," the newspaper quotes an insider.
And he or she knows even more: this year, all of the royal couple's gifts are said to be based on cotton. "Without a doubt, all of their mutual gifts are very creative and romantic," says the source.
The US wedding website The Knot, for example, provides clues as to what all of this could mean. Paper thus symbolizes the fragility of a marriage (first year), whereas cotton stands for an ever closer connection. It fits quite well that, according to the report, Harry and Meghan prefer to spend their evenings together at home.
