Royal Baby Gift Guide: 12 Potential Presents for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Future Newborn


Samir Hussein

Here's to the greatest news EVER since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement—the royal pair is expecting! Meghan's loose Givenchy ensemble from Princess Eugenie's wedding over the weekend initially sparked pregnancy speculations, and the Palace revealed the long-awaited news in a statement earlier today. The royal infant (and soon-to-be seventh in line for the throne) will be born this upcoming spring, meaning there are just a few more months until the world is blessed with a mini Harry and Meghan. Just imagine their baby's upcoming playdates with Prince William and Kate Middleton's children. Adorableness. Overload.

Aside from brainstorming potential royal baby names (another Elizabeth, perhaps?), we're also interested in potential gift ideas for the future royal tot. After all, it wouldn't be a royal birth without a shower of high-end presents (Prince Harry even reportedly dropped $10,000 on a christening gift for his nephew, Prince Louis, so there's that). Pulling picks from popular British children's brands and a few of Will and Kate's go-to's, we rounded up 12 baby gifts truly fit for royalty. Curb your royal baby fever, or even gain inspiration for your own expecting friends.
