Meghan Markle, the princess the world needs but does not yet deserve, officially joins the Royal Family on May 19th (order the tea and crumpets now for the ultimate watch party), but is getting some nice engagement gifts from the United Kingdom's allies.
And by nice, I mean lame.
Markle's brother-in-law-to-be, His Royal Highness Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, went on a royal visit to Finland last November, and a recently published PDF cataloged the gifts he received from the Finns.
Prince William scored a lot of cool stuff, including a wristwatch from the president, a bottle of gin, and TWO FABRIC GNOMES!!!
Members of the Finnish public also gave Prince William some tchotchkes to pass on to Kate and the kids, including two hobby horses and a necklace.
Way down at the bottom of the list, is the gift a Finn gave to Wills to give to Meghan, and it's a goddamn apron.
Her first gift as a member of the Royal family and it's something she'll probably never use?
"You're getting married—now get in the kitchen and make your man a sandwich!"
Come on, Finland. Meghan deserves better.
Where are her FABRIC GNOMES?
The Welsh, on the other hand, are better gift-givers. Prince Harry and Meghan are visiting Cardiff Castle today, and they scored a traditional Celtic love spoon from cute kids with their names.
Wales: 1. Finland: 0.
