It's no surprise that Meghan and Prince Harry always wanted to have kids and ever since the news of her first pregnancy was made public, royal fans have been guessing whether it would be a girl or a boy! However, the soon-to-be mother, Duchess of Sussex has already decided on the prized gift should like to pass on to her future child, especially if it's a baby girl, as per reports.

Back in 2015, before she even met Prince Harry, the then 'Suits' actress revealed the heirloom piece she plans to give to her daughter. Speaking to Hello! magazine she said: "I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch - I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version."

"I had it engraved on the back, “To M.M. From M.M.” and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them." The classic Cartier wristwatch reportedly retails at almost £5,000, with the engraving 'to Meghan Markle from Meghan Markle' was etched by the actress as a gift to herself to celebrate the third season of 'Suits.'

According to Markle’s close friend Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, the actress is looking forward to the prospect of being a mom and previously had spoken to her about having a daughter of her own. “She said to me, ‘I would absolutely love to have children, and I can’t wait to be a mother,’” said Nelthorpe-Cowne.

The message on Meghan's watch, along with being extremely thoughtful and sweet, can also give an insight into the kind of baby name the royal couple might want. Although the Duchess has already had her 12-week scan as per reports, Prince Harry and she have not yet revealed the sex of their upcoming royal baby.

The couple announced the news of their pregnancy at the wedding of Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank on Friday but kept it reserved for only the members of the royal family. The happy news was officially announced hours after the couple was seen beaming as they touched down in Sydney for their first major international tour together.

Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public."
