The Duchess of Sussex has updated her engagement ring.
Her first ring, that was debuted when she and Prince Harry announced their engagement, included a gold band with a centre stone from Botswana flanked by two diamonds that belonged to Harry’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales.
Thanks to some eagle-eyed fans on social media, they have noticed that Meghan Markle’s ring has undergone a transformation that she showed off at the photocall where they introduced baby Archie and then again during the Queen’s birthday parade.
Her new ring still includes the centre stones, but the band is now a pavé set gold band. During her pregnancy, Meghan was spotted without her engagement ring, which many believed was due to swelling – but perhaps, she also used that time to have the ring altered.
She also wore a third eternity ring during Trooping the Colour (as seen above) which has been suggested as either a “push present” after the birth of Archie on May 6 or a gift for their first anniversary on May 19.
During their engagement interview, the couple spoke about the original ring with Harry recalling how he designed it. “It’s obviously yellow gold because that’s her favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”
Meghan added, “It’s beautiful, and he designed it, it’s incredible.”
