Meghan has injected some new interest into the British Royal Family, making royalty lovers out of all of us. But for the die-hard fan who lines up the wedding route or gets out of bed at 4am to watch the wedding TV coverage live, here are some Christmas gift ideas that don’t involve souvenir plates or tea towels.
Every British Royal Family afficianado would adore the Strathberry Midi Tote Meghan carried during her first official public appearance with Harry after the engagement. Her bag in burgundy, white, and navy is currently sold out but they will be restocked and an IOU is always appropriate.
The Links of London Hope Egg Silver and White Topaz Earrings are a favourite of Princess Kate and are pretty for day or evening.
While the pressure may be on for Meghan to sport UK goods, she is fond of this Everlane Market Tote. It’s in stock but not shipping until after Christmas.
The British monarchy does not have a monopoly on mixing custom pieces with more accessible style. Denmark’s ultra-chic Princess Mary is one of the best dressed people on the planet and has been known to wear pieces from H&M’s Conscious collection. Queen Letizia of Spain often wears Zara (as does Princess Kate.)

While no member of the royal family has yet purchased this floral printed midi dress by Zara, I think this brand new style looks particularly regal.
If you can’t dress like royalty, you can eat like them! The Queen loves chocolate and Charbonnel et Walker boasts a royal seal. You can often get their chocolates at TJ Maxx or HomeSense.
To add a royal touch to someone’s bar cart, you can gift a bottle of Dubonnet so they can mix the the Queen’s favourite Dubonnet and gin cocktail.
