Meghan Markle Wore A Sweet Tribute To Princess Diana

The nod to the late princess follows Meghan and Prince Harry's exciting baby news.

Meghan Markle wore a sweet tribute to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, during the first leg of her royal tour to Australia with Prince Harry.

The former “Suits” actresses stepped out wearing two pieces of jewelry ― earrings and a gold bracelet ― from Diana’s collection.

Royal commentator Omid Scobie also noted that Meghan appeared to be wearing a gold bracelet with blue stones that also once belonged to Diana:

Meghan memorably wore Princess Diana’s gorgeous aquamarine ring to her evening wedding reception at Frogmore House on May 19.

Meghan’s engagement ring also has stones from Diana’s jewelry collection. Prince Harry explained the connection during a BBC interview just after he and Meaghan announced their engagement.

“The [engagement] ring is yellow gold because that’s her [Meghan’s] favorite,” he said. “And the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds on either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this ― on this crazy journey together.”
