    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement in November, with the couple set to wed at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, this weekend.

    People are already queuing in Windsor to get a good spot to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds, and fashion lovers are dying to find out who has been chosen as Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer.

    One of the most talked about aspects of the day however is what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding rings will look like, with speculation that the couple will have gone down a sentimental route with their choices – that is, if Meghan Markle’s engagement ring is anything to go by.

    Meghan gave us the first glimpse of her sparkling engagement ring in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace last year, where the couple made their first official appearance together, telling the world how they met and explaining the story behind the iconic piece of jewellery.


    After Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with Princess Diana’s solitaire sapphire and diamond sparkler, there was talk as to what Prince Harry would propose to Meghan Markle with, and it seems that all of our questions have been answered.

    Prince Harry is said to have designed the three-diamond engagement ring himself – with each diamond holding special significance to the royal.

    The central diamond is from Botswana – a country that the newlyweds have visited together and the two diamonds on either side are from his late mother Princess Diana’s collection. The three jewels are reported to be held together by a gold band, made by Cleave and company.

    Who designed the couple’s wedding bands? We’ll have to wait and see.
