It's been revealed that Meghan Markle organised a touching surprise for Prince Harry's 35th birthday.

A source spoke to People Magazine, revealing the pair "always give each other incredibly romantic gifts" and explained that for Harry's 35th birthday last September, Meghan went above and beyond.

"Last year, for Harry's birthday, Meghan recreated their Botswana camping adventures in their backyard," the source said.

"It's a place that means so much to them — and to Harry in particular — so Meghan wanted to bring that happy place to him on his day so she set up a tent, got sleeping bags, cooked dinner and recreated Botswana where they fell in love."

When the pair first got engaged in 2017, Harry revealed they headed to Africa together after just two dates in London.

"And then it was I think about three, maybe four weeks later that I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana," he said.

"And we camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic."

They later returned to Botswana in 2017 to assist Dr Mike Chase from Elephants Without Borders to aid in conservation efforts.

Harry and Meghan celebrated their second anniversary this week and likely exchanged meaningful gifts.

"They love to do their own take on traditional wedding gifts," another insider said, adding, "The first anniversary was paper, and Meghan wrote out the wedding speech and had it framed for him."

"This year, they both gave each other gifts based on 'cotton.' Undoubtedly, it was a very creative and romantic gesture as all their gifts are to one another."

The pair reportedly spent their second anniversary with their son Archie, who recently turned one.
