Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a number of high points from their tour of Australia — dramatic fly-swatting, moments of PDA, and receiving sweet gifts from young fans. But one of the standout highlights was when a young boy named Gavin gifted Meghan with a pasta necklace dipped in gold that he made himself.
The present instantly made our hearts melt, but the story doesn’t end there. In fact, it gets even better. Gavin has set up a website through which he sells his now-famous golden pasta necklaces for $20. According to Gavin’s mother, Rowan Hazelwood, the money will be donated to charity in hopes of bringing awareness to stillborn babies. This particular cause is especially meaningful to the family because Gavin’s first sister was a stillborn in 2014.
It truly is heartwarming to see someone so young already wanting to make a positive impact in the world. With a royal rocking his very own necklace, it’s safe to say that this is one of Gavin’s crowning moments. View more photos of Meghan donning the handmade pendant ahead.
“I begged mum to let me stay home from school so that I could make Meghan a pasta necklace and give it to her. I dipped the pasta into gold paint and threaded some ribbon through the pasta. It was my idea … mum helped a bit. Then we made a sign that read “I Made You A Necklace”. I was so happy that she loved it and wore it!” – Gavin
