It may seem like an odd choice to welcome a new royal into the family, but a gift Meghan Markle received back in December — her first official royal gift — could not be more fitting for this admitted foodie.
She received—an apron.
How do we know this? Because at the beginning of every year, the royal family makes a list of all the gifts they’ve received the year prior. And even though her wedding to Prince Harry isn’t until May 19, Markle received a gift back in November on behalf of her soon-to-be brother-in-law, Prince William, during a trip to Finland.

Anyone who watches Suits knows that Markle’s character, Rachel Zane, is obsessed with dining and fine food. And even if you’re not a fan of the show, Markle told the world during her and Harry’s first televised interview that he proposed while they were cooking chicken at home.
“It happened a few weeks ago at Nottingham Cottage…just a cozy night roasting chicken…It was an amazing surprise and so sweet…very romantic,” she said.
If that’s not the definition of hygge…
She even told Food & Wine that she brings roasted chicken to dinner parties, calling it “a game changer.”
When Marie Claire interviewed Markle back in 2013, she talked about her foodie status:
“I love to cook. My character is a foodie because they know that I’m a foodie. I’m always on the quest to find amazing new restaurants and new recipes. I’m a California girl, right? I grew up with that farm-to-table dining before it was sweeping the nation. I do think there’s some value to really throwing yourself into food and embracing where it comes from.
So, basically, whoever got Markle the apron is a genius.
