  • In case you missed it (I mean, how could you?), Meghan Markle announced she was pregnant with Prince Harry’s baby earlier this week, while on their official tour of Australia.

    And call it a coincidence or not, but the Duchess of Sussex paid tribute to Princess Diana in a very subtle way during her first appearance after the happy news was announced.

    First off, she wore an elegant shift dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, which was aptly called ‘blessed’, but it was her accessories that caught Royal fans’ eyes.

    Meghan wore a simple gold bangle with black stones, as well as gold diamond-encrusted butterfly earrings. These actually belonged to Princess Diana, who also wore them on her very first Royal tour in Canada, after getting married to Prince Charles.

    This isn’t the first time Meghan has worn Diana’s jewels, as she also wore this stunning Aquamarine ring on her wedding day, which was a gift from Prince Harry.

    The fact she wore a memento of her late mother-in-law’s for those two significant milestones certainly speaks volumes.
