  • A couple of days ago, Meghan Markle accidentally revealed her due date while on a visit to Birkenhead with Prince Harry. And while everyone got excited about this fact, others noticed her chic jewellery, which included a delicate gold bangle.

    Other than the fact this is very on trend for SS19, it’s the message behind the bracelet that makes it more interesting.

    The Duchess of Sussex has long been a vocal advocate of sustainability, and it certainly seems like she’s supporting her words with actions.

    You see the gold plated ripple bracelet (£240) is by a brand called BAR Jewellery, which is a London-based sustainable brand. All pieces are handcrafted in London, using recycled material.

    And it turns out Meghan isn’t the inly royal fan of the brand, as founder Sophie McKay met the Queen when she made a surprise visit to London Fashion Week a year ago.

    Other celebrity fans include Jessie Ware, Naomi Harris and Emma Watson, another big fan of ethical dressing and sustainability.
