Meghan Markle is wearing a familiar piece with an updated twist. The Duchess of Sussex debuted a brand new eternity ring at the Trooping of the Colour in early June, but eagle-eyed observers missed another addition to her ring finger. Markle’s coveted engagement ring from Prince Harry got an update of its own too.
The original thin gold band seemingly appears to have been replaced by a micro-pavé band with the three stones that Prince Harry sourced from Botswana and Princess Diana’s collection all set into the new piece.
Markle may have first debuted the update to her engagement ring while stepping out last month to introduce Baby Archie. (Royal superfans were understandably consumed with the first look of the royal baby to notice Markle’s revamped bling.)
Her updated engagement ring has since been neatly stacked against her wedding band from the royal reserve, as well as her brand new eternity band from Prince Harry. The latter piece was reportedly gifted to mark their one-year wedding anniversary.
Markle isn’t the only royal to show off an eternity band. Prince William also reportedly gifted Kate Middleton an eternity ring back in 2013 after the birth of Prince George.
Despite its fresh update, Markle’s engagement ring still holds sentimental value to the couple. Back in 2017, Prince Harry told BBC, “the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”
