Meghan Markle made these very special presents to give out on tour

We can’t deal.

We can’t deal.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have only been on tour for a matter of days and already they’ve made more of a storm than virtually any royal on any royal tour ever.

From the announcement of their Spring baby and their sweet public displays of affection under the umbrella to the viral videos of them hugging children, the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making a very good impression.

But being them, they even went one step further, with Meghan actually hand-making gifts for the people the couple were set to visit.

What did she make? Banana bread.

That’s right. She may be Duchess of Sussex (and about four months pregnant) but the 37-year-old is still said to have stayed up on one of her first nights in Australia to bake gifts for a family that were hosting them on their farm in Dubbo.

According to Meghan if you go to someone else’s house you should always take something with you, with the Duchess bringing a tin of Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend tea with the banana bread.

But according to Harry, Meghan was ‘worried that she’s put too many bananas in it’, something he insisted wasn’t possible, announcing: ’There are never too many bananas.’

Meghan, please can you make us some banana bread too?
