Meghan Markle Receives Custom Gift for Archie as She Makes an Appearance at the Invictus Games
Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the Invictus Games on Saturday and she was surprised herself with a special present from the Yankees.
The Duchess of Sussex made her third official appearance since giving birth to baby Archie by attending the game between the Yankees and the Red Sox at the London Stadium in Olympic Park.
Before the official start of the game though, the Yankees players made sure to give a congratulatory baby gift to the Duchess. Archie is now about seven weeks old, so we hope it fits.
They gave Markle a custom jersey with her son's name stitched onto the back. On the front was number 19, to represent the year that Archie was born.
"We want to congratulate you on the birth of your child and also present you with what we thought was a pretty cool gift. It’s for Archie," Yankees manager Aaron Boone reportedly said as he handed it over.
An elated Markle covered her mouth with her hand as she gaped in excitement. Her husband jokingly determined that between the two teams, the Yankees gave them the better present.
According to People, the Boston Red Sox gave the couple a onesie. Meanwhile, Markle called the jersey "incredible" and thanked the team, who posted the sweet exchange to their Twitter account.

The Duke and Duchess also shared a post of them at the game to Instagram, and it showed that they both chose black for the big day. Harry wore a polo shirt with "Invictus Games" printed on the chest pocket and matching black pants.
On the other hand, Markle was donned in a knee-length Stella McCartney dress and a black belt to match. It features a flared bottom and conveniently provided her with pockets near the waist.
In terms of accessories, Markle reportedly wore the WWAKE opal bracelet, an eternity ring which she debuted at Trooping the Color this year, as well as her engagement ring.
Markle's appearance at last month's Trooping the Color also came as a surprise to royal fans. At the time, she showed up in a navy blue dress from Givenchy with a matching hat.
She rode alongside her husband, Kate Middleton, and Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall in a carriage. She then stood atop the balcony with the rest of the family at the Buckingham Palace.
Despite the public appearances she continues to make, Markle and her husband Harry are expected to hold a private christening for baby Archie sometime soon.
The event is to take place with only about 25 persons in attendance, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles, and the baby's godparents — whose identities are still unknown.
