This is how Meghan Markle won over Prince George and Princess Charlotte
Since she married into the most famous family on the planet, Meghan Markle has set about on a one-woman mission to revolutionise and modernise the royal family to an extent never-before-seen. Even her wedding, which took place in May this year, with a historic and unique event.
The occasion, which has been largely heralded as "the most modern event in royal history", saw various stereotypes and conventions shattered. Whether it was having a black gospel choir present in the chapel, or the black American pastor, the nuptials or Harry and Meghan were a joyous and groundbreaking affair.
And, while her family may be determined on ruining Meghan's seamless transition from an actress to a royal, it appears that her new in-laws have been more than happy to welcome her with open arms.
Even before the wedding, Meghan was invited to royal engagements and functions that are usually only reserved for royals and their spouses. Then, there were rumours of her hilarious Christmas presents and, judging by the photos, her growing relationship with Her Majesty the Queen. Now, however, it seems like Meghan has even won over the royals who don't talk to the press: Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Meghan's new niece and nephew are believed to be big fans of the new Duchess of Sussex. According to a report by The Mirror, Meghan won the affection of the children after she cooked for them. It's believed that Meghan is a pretty dab hand in the kitchen, with her and Prince Harry getting engaged over one of her home-cooked meals.
Meghan moved in with Harry to Nottingham Cottage before they tied the knot and the home is situated in close proximity to that of Kate and Will, giving Meghan plenty of opportunities to bake up some goodies for her soon to be niece and nephew.
On top of winning round the kids, Meghan is also reported to have gotten close with Kate Middleton. It's believed that Kate has taken a particular interest in helping Meghan adjust to life in her new family.
"Kate has been doing whatever she can to help Meghan adjust to life behind Palace walls," a royal source told ET earlier this year, before Prince Louis was born. "Of course with two little ones, and a third on the way, Kate has her hands full, but she’s been guiding Meghan on Palace protocol and supporting her."
Meghan, in turn, re-payed her future sister-in-law's kindness by popping over with home-cooked food for the Cambridge family. "An avid cook, Meghan often pops around to visit with Kate and the kids dropping off treats," the added.
So Meghan, like all good aunties, knows that the key to a child's love is simple: fill them up with goodies. Now she's won over the kids, it would be fair to say that she's basically completed her integration into the Royal Family. Is there anything this woman can't do?
