Meghan Markle reveals she gave Prince Harry a bench as gift for his first Father’s Day

 

Meghan Markle bought Prince Harry a bench with a poem on it for his first Father’s Day.

In a radio interview broadcast today, the Duchess of Sussex revealed he had opted for the gift shortly after their son Archie was born.

She told NPR: “As most of us do, you go, what am I going to get them as a gift?

“And I thought I just wanted something sentimental and a place for him to have as a bit of a home base with our son.”

Meghan wrote a poem about the moments she hoped the family would share on the piece of outdoor furniture.

“This is your bench,” the poem reads, “Where life will begin/For you and our son/Our baby, our kin.”

She said the words were inspired by watching Harry with the couple’s son.

Harry and Meghan, who last month welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet, now live in California after quitting as frontline royals last year.

The Duke of Sussex has a difficult relationship with his own father, Prince Charles, who he claimed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey had stopped answering his calls.

Earlier today the Mirror reported that Harry and Meghan’s son Archie may never be a prince as Prince Charles tries to slim down the eye-watering cost of the monarchy to taxpayers.

The first in line to the throne is reportedly set to cull fringe members of the family, as he believes the public are fed up of footing the bill for hangers-on.

This has reportedly infuriated Harry and Meghan, who are said to have learned about the decision shortly before their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

It has been reported that legal documents will be changed to ensure that Archie will not become a Prince – a title usually bestowed on grandchildren of the monarch.

Charles is said to be worried that the public is getting less keen to fund the lifestyles of more royals, and has clashed with younger brother Andrew over plans to slim-down the monarchy.

The family received a £69.4 million public-funded Sovereign Grant in 2020, but this does not include additional costs such as security, which is funded by police.

Campaign group Republic – which has called for the monarchy to be abolished – estimates the true cost of the royal family to be £345 million per year to taxpayers.

A source told the Mail on Sunday : “Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a Prince, even when Charles became King,”

The newspaper says the decision has plunged relations between the Sussexes and the royals to a “dangerous new low”.

Sources close to Harry and Meghan – who last year quit as frontline royals after relocating to the US – have previously said they expected Archie to be named a Prince when Charles takes the throne.

They are said to have been shocked to learn that Harry’s father will go as far as changing the Letters Patent in order to deny Archie the title.

It looks to be bad news for others as well, with Charles and Andrew clashing over security for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Although the detail has not been made public, it is expected that the slimmed-down monarchy will see full titles given to heirs to their throne and their immediate families.
