Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended the first game of the two game series with the Major League Baseball teams in London with the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Socks. The New York Yankees took the win as well as winning over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with their custom made gift for baby Archie. 

Ahead of the big game on Saturday June 29th, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visited both teams to wish them good luck in the game. Both teams gave the royal couple a little gift as a token of their appreciation for their 7-week-old son Archie. It seems as though the New York Yankees might have won in the gift department as they gave little Archie a custom made jersey with his name on it as well as the number 19 which is a nod to the year he was born.

"This is incredible"

Meghan was so excited she gasped and put her hand over her mouth as she saw the cute little gift! We can only imagine it reminded her a little bit of home. "This is incredible. Thank you." she noted to the team. The couple was also given a cute little onesie from the Boston Red Sox as well.
