  • Last Friday Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended a roundtable discussion on gender equality with The Queens Commonwealth Trust.

    As the Duchess stepped out, many commented on her red leather skirt by Hugo Boss, which was worn that same week by another royal, Queen Letizia of Spain.

    However, what we didn’t notice until now were two new delicate gold rings on her right hand. And as it turns out, they are by a jewellery brand that supports a cause very close to Prince Harry’s heart: wildlife conservation.

    The Canadian brand is called Vargas Goteo and specialised in stackable gold and silver jewellery. More importantly, it highlights the conservation of poached, illegally traded and irresponsibly sourced wildlife.

    Each collection raises awareness and contributes directly to carefully selected ocean and wildlife organisation campaigns, including anti-shark finning, manta ray conservation, coral reef restoration, anti-ivory poaching and anti-rhino poaching organisations.

    Prince Harry has always been vocal on conserving wildlife, and recently said he is ‘personally driven by the desire to help restore the balance between humans and nature’.
