Meghan Markle news: Duchess’ jewellery makes nod to Prince Harry in royal appearance


In just one week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will officially “step back” from their roles as ‘senior’ royals. However, they have already carried out their final duties which took place earlier this month. The Duchess of Sussex made a sweet nod to her husband during her final royal appearances.

The royal mixed luxury with affordable jewels during the trip, according to Claire Adler, jewellery specialist and founder of Claire Adler Luxury PR.

The Duchess of Sussex also used her choice of jewellery to proudly display her love for her husband.

She told Express.co.uk: “Meghan’s impeccably curated outfits during her recent London trip amounted to nothing less than expected – a veritable catwalk show all her own.

“On the jewellery front, Meghan’s style choices ran the gamut from costume to luxury pieces, while acknowledging her belief in sustainability, the glamour potential of affordable jewellery, promoting British and Canadian owned businesses – and demonstrating her enduring love for her husband.”

DON’T MISS

While in the UK, Meghan made a surprise solo trip to the National Theatre, which she is patron of.

Although she visited the London location by herself, Meghan gave a sweet nod to Prince Harry through her choice of jewellery.

“During a solo visit to the National Theatre, Meghan’s necklace seemed to suggest that Harry was very much accompanying her,” Claire added.

“The charm necklace she wore by Sophie Lis references ’The Eternal Song’ by 19th century French poet Rosemonde Gérard.

While performing her last duties at a Commonwealth Day service, Meghan honoured Canada by wearing a pricey piece from a Canadian designers.

Claire said: “At the Commonwealth Day service, Meghan paid tribute to Canada with earrings from Canadian jewellers Maison Birks.

“The Snowflake Snowstorm Diamond Earrings in White Gold, $8,700 (£7,293), are inspired by the icy beauty of Canada’s winters, displaying 2.15ct diamonds in 18kt white gold.”

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile

Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.

Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.

Actress

Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.

Relationships

In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
