Meghan Markle’s First-Ever Christmas Gift to Prince William Was Actually Brilliant

Meghan Markle has proven herself to be a gift-giving expert.

During her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017, the Duchess of Sussex had the honor of joining the royal family for their Christmas celebration. And when it came time to exchange the holiday gifts, Markle's present for Prince William left quite the impression.

According to Finding Freedom, a biography by Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, Markle gave William a spoon that had the words "cereal killer" embossed on it—and he definitely approved.

The authors wrote, "Meghan's biggest challenge was finding the perfect novelty gifts to amuse her new extended family. At least one of her gifts was a huge hit—a spoon for William that had 'cereal killer' embossed on the shallow bowl end of the utensil." Talk about clever.

But Markle isn't the only one who impressed the royals with her gag gifts. According to the book, Prince Harry is also known for giving a few funny gifts of his own. Per Finding Freedom, "One year, Harry reportedly gave the Queen a shower cap emblazoned with the phrase, 'Ain't life a b****,' which she loved. Another time he gifted his grandmother a Big Mouth Billy Bass singing toy that was said to sit proudly in Balmoral, her Scottish retreat, and provide the Queen with great laughs."

Although the royals have received hundreds of trinkets, books and accessories as gifts in the past, we imagine that most of them don't compare to these. 

Now, if we can just get an invite to the next royal gift exchange...
