Meghan is apparently changing her diamond ring for this reason

The Duchess of Sussex has impeccable taste in jewellery, and the new diamond ring she debuted during her recent business trip to New York was no exception.

She's always been clever with her choices, opting for meaningful pieces such as the constellation necklace she sported a few months ago, and of course her engagement ring which features an ethical diamond as well as stones belonging to Princess Diana - though credit to Prince Harry on that one.

Meghan has also never been afraid to switch things up a bit, and she famously changed her engagement ring not long after Archie's birth, swapping the gold band for a diamond one.

Well it's now rumoured Meghan might be making another tweak to the eternity ring Prince Harry gave her. The diamond band already features three birthstones on the underband, one for Harry (Sapphire for September), Archie (Emerald for May) and herself (Peridot for August).

Of course, the couple have since then welcomed daughter Lilibet into the fold, who was born in June. Pearl is the traditional birthstone for that month, so it would make sense for the Duchess to add it to her eternity ring to make it even more special.

In fact, it could well be the reason she wore a different band in New York, with this one perhaps being worked on at the jeweller's.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
