What Meghan Got From Prince Harry Just Before Going Public With Their Relationship

The Duke of Sussex, 33, spent thousands on a cute gift for then-girlfriend Meghan Markle in October 2016, which was also the same month that the couple went public with their relationship.

Prince Harry went and bought an adorable painting from an exclusive art gallery in London. According to sources, Prince Harry got a piece called Everybody Needs Somebody to Love by British artist Van Donna.

The acrylic, stencil and spray piece shows a boy and a girl holding hands, and next to them, the words “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” in the romantic red script.

What makes it even sweeter, even though some art fans might complain, is the fact that Harry asked for the piece to be split in half so it could be shared by two people.

An art collector told People: “Harry is one of the regulars in the area and regularly goes into the shops and galleries with his bodyguard, kind of in stealth mode.

“He was in the gallery for a little while and liked a few things, then settled on the Van Donna. He said he was looking for something for ‘an important person’.

“It was literally just before anyone heard about Meghan — literally just days before it was announced he was going out with her.”

It is said that he bought the painting from Walton Fine Arts gallery in Kensington, west London.

According to some sources, the Prince paid around 599-799 pounds for the art piece, which is way more than some flowers and chocolates.

The art collector added: “At the time nobody knew about Meghan Markle, but if it was for her then it’s a very romantic gesture.

“It’s a bit like a charm bracelet — where you give half of it to someone you’re involved with and keep the other half yourself. We should all learn something from it, I think.”
