  • Yesterday, Meghan Markle visited the Royal Variety Charity’s residential nursing and care home, of which the Queen is a patron, as part of a solo engagement.

    She wore a lovely floral dress by Brock Collection, but it’s not so much her clothes that people noticed, rather than her jewellery – and I’m not talking about her gorgeous engagement ring.

    Not, it was a £250 rose gold ring on her other hand that caught everyone’s attention, mainly because of its ‘secret significance’.

    The ring, by Turkish brand Kismet by Milka, features an evil eye, encased in the hand of Fatima, known as the Hamsa. The hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet that signifies the hand of God, and is widely seen as a protective sign, which brings happiness, luck, health, and good fortune to its owner.

    Or you know, she might just think it’s a pretty ring. Imagine that.
