We recently received a complete list of gifts that were given to the royal family in 2019, and it confirms that the perks of the job are no joke. For example, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Harrison, is only 11 months old and has already accumulated a plethora of new goodies simply by being the newest member of the royal family.
Per the royal family, the gift giving took place during his first official visit to South Africa, where he gathered several new additions to his stuffed animal collection. Not only did he get a soft toy elephant and a monkey, but he also got two—yes, two—stuffed rhinoceros.
Archie also received a pilot logbook and two pilot’s shirts, in case he somehow takes after his dad, Prince Harry, who served in the Army for ten years.
While Archie gathered several books, two standouts include Desmond and the Very Mean Word and Children’s Bible Stories. They were a gift from author Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who met the young royal back in September 2019.
Other gifted items include a cotton bib, a drawstring bag, a pair of dungarees (aka overalls), a collection of toiletries and two baby wetsuits from Waves for Change. You know, just in case Prince Harry and Markle decide to give Archie a sibling. *Crosses fingers*
Archie’s playroom must be starting to resemble Mary Poppins’s magical purse. Seriously though, where are they putting all these toys?
