Fans of the eagle-eyed royals will likely notice the Duchess of Sussex’s left wrist – she’s wearing a gold watch, and it looks like it’s the Princess of Wales’ Cartier Tank Française watch.

Meghan also owns a two-tone version of the watch, which she purchased in 2015 to celebrate the renewal of Suits for a third season.

If it’s Diana’s watch, it’s not the only item Meghan has inherited from Diana. She wore a ring that once belonged to her late mother-in-law on her wedding day. During the Sussexes’ tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji in 2018, the Duchess also wore a pair of butterfly earrings and a gold bracelet that belonged to Diana.

Meghan’s engagement ring also contains two smaller stones from Diana’s collection, as well as a diamond from Botswana. In the couple’s engagement interview, Harry said he wanted Meghan to have two of her late mother’s jewelry “to make sure she’s with us on this crazy journey together”.

“Everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Princess Diana’s stones] and obviously not being able to meet her mother, it’s so important for me to know that she’s a part of it with us, ”Meghan also said in the BBC interview at the time.

Diana would have loved Meghan, so we’re delighted to see the Duchess of Sussex pay tribute to her!
