After a long nine months of anticipation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex finally welcomed their first baby on Monday. And while we’re still patiently waiting for the name of their baby boy to be announced, it is safe to say that he is already being showered in gifts.
From the national public, to family members and celebrity friends, baby Sussex will be spoilt rotten. And by the sounds of things, Oprah Winfrey will be first in line to hand over her special present to the newborn.
Speaking in an interview prior to the baby’s birth, the icon revealed that she already had a gift for Meghan and Harry’s little one. ‘I have a standard gift that I do for people that I really care about,’ she told Access Hollywood. ‘So I don’t know the baby’s name or the baby’s gender, but this baby will have enough books to last a lifetime.’
That’s right, Baby Sussex will have his own fully stocked library courtesy of Oprah and honestly, we couldn’t think of a more fitting gift to receive from the queen of wisdom herself. What a lucky little lad!
Oprah is a close friend of Harry and Meghan and was among the host of top tier celebrities that attended the couple’s wedding in May 2018. Since then, she has teamed up with Harry to work on a special project in support of mental health.
The pair are co-creators and executive producers of an upcoming Apple TV documentary series about mental health which is set to launch in 2020. According to the show’s description, it hopes to ‘have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive.’
Announcing the news on the Sussex Royal Instagram page, Prince Harry said: ‘I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self.’
