With a milestone wedding anniversary fast approaching, Prince Harry is on the hunt for the perfect gift for his bride.

And rather than a traditional wooden gift to mark their five years of wedded bliss, he’s keen to go a whole lot bigger.

UK’s Heat magazine reported earlier this month that the 38-year-old is eyeing up a private island purchase somewhere in the Caribbean – and now, an insider tells Woman’s Day he has an even better idea.

“Harry’s making inquiries about whether he can buy his late great-aunt Princess Margaret’s holiday home in Mustique,” reveals our exclusive source.

“It’s a stunning property that has been meticulously maintained, and he likes the symbolism of taking over a home owned by a previous royal rebel.”

Les Jolies Eaux – meaning “beautiful waters” – is a spectacular estate overlooking a private peninsula, designed for Margaret and given to her as a wedding present in the 1950s.

She gifted it to her son, David Linley, Earl of Snowdon, who sold it privately in 1999.

“Harry loves the idea of getting it back into the family in honour of Meghan,” says a source.

“She and the kids would love it there – plus, it makes an amazing investment. Now he just has to figure out how to get it for her before their anniversary on May 19.”

It’s certainly an upgrade from Frogmore Cottage, with its five-bedroom estate, including a swimming pool and epic views. The property is currently rented to holidaymakers for $67,000 a week, which includes five staff.
