According to People magazine, Meghan Markle reportedly went the extra mile for her husband's birthday in 2019. A source revealed to the publication, "Last year, for Harry's birthday, Meghan recreated their Botswana camping adventures in their backyard."
The source continued, "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."
During the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's engagement interview in 2017, Prince Harry revealed that he invited Meghan to Botswana soon after they started dating. Per the duke, "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... And we camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic."
