Forever our favorite royals. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s anniversary gifts to each other for their second year of marriage will make you emotional. The former Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their second wedding anniversary on Tuesday, May 19. And while they didn’t receive many well wishes on Instagram from the British royal family, the couple did celebrate on their own, and they gave each other the sweetest presents.
According to a source for Us Weekly, Meghan gave Harry a handwritten card that she designed herself. Her husband, on the other hand, gifted his wife a bouquet of roses, along with a ring to celebrate two years after he put a ring on her wedding finger to mark the start of their marriage.
“Meghan designed Harry’s card, and hand wrote a beautiful, sentimental message inside expressing her love for him,” the insider said. “Harry surprised Meghan with a huge, stunning bouquet of roses and a ring, which she loves.”
