We all know that smoking can be bad for one’s health. In fact, South Africa’s new draft law will basically wipe out smoking forever and save us all from the plight of tobacco addiction.
Or something like that.
But it seems like Emmanuel Macron doesn’t know that tidbit about smoking being a bad thing, since he’s reportedly planning to give Prince Harry a cigarette lighter as a wedding gift.
Before you scoff, it’s not just any old lighter from a corner shop. The President of France is getting a golden lighter that’s part of a James Bond collection, explained The Telegraph:
French heritage brand ST Dupont’s London-based PR group said it was “delighted to announce that their ST Dupont 007 Collection will be the official Royal Wedding gift on behalf of France from President Macron. (Prince Harry is reported to be a 007 fan!)”
Accompanying pictures showed a travel case with a golden lighter, cigar cutter, pens and cuff links all arranged in the shape of a gun, each with the 007 logo.
Check out this bad boy:
If this isn’t a direct reference to The Man with the Golden Gun, I’ll be so friggin’ upset.
Meghan Markle apparently wants her fiancé to cut down on his ciggie intake:
The catch is that news of the Gallic wedding gift came just weeks after reports that [MegaMarkle had persuaded her husband-to-be to ditch his Malboro Lights and cut down on alcohol consumption as part of a health drive to “get his soldier body back” in time for the big day.
It was unclear whether the Elysée had been hastily informed of Prince Harry’s decision to quit smoking.
While the reports of Prince Harry kicking his nicotine habit are unconfirmed, he has not been seen smoking in public for some time and royal watchers said it would clash with his global role model status.
We know that Harry is currently shredding for the wedding at that high-end London gym, so bad timing, Macron, bad timing.
The choice of a golden cigarette is yet to be confirmed “100” percent, though. Perhaps Macron has another gift in mind:
[ST Duponts] did confirm, however, that the luxury heritage brand had been chosen to create the royal gift, which would be “unique”, and most likely including an engraved message from President Macron.
Let’s hope whatever Macron has up his sleeve meets Markle’s approval. Probably not, but it’s fun to imagine.
