Meghan Markle will celebrate her first birthday as a member of the royal family and as a married woman this weekend. The Duchess of Sussex turns 37 on Saturday, and people are hoping Prince Harry will plan something special for her big day. Ofcourse, he will.
But as a royal, Meghan is also likely to receive lots of other presents from fans and well-wishers around the world – and she’s already been sent her first one.
It’s a lovely gift, and it’s something that fits in perfectly with her beliefs and passions.
The bag is completely cruelty-free and made with vegan leather, and it even has a gold badge on the front which proudly states: “This bag is animal cruelty free and vegan.”
Speaking to OK! magazine , PETA director Elisa Allen said: “PETA believes this animal-friendly bag is absolutely perfect for the Duchess, as she is mostly vegan and cares about animals and the environment – in sharp contrast to the leather industry, which, in partnership with the meat trade, kills over 1 billion animals every year.
“Chances are that this gorgeous handbag will inspire the Duchess to embrace vegan fashion and leave all animal skins out of her wardrobe, as she’s already done with fur.
“PETA hopes the gift will encourage the royal family and its fans alike to embrace compassionate brands like Alexandra K and to steer clear of cruelly obtained animal skins.”
