Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pose for a new official photograph, where the ‘Suits’ actress is seen wearing a family heirloom once belonging to Princess Diana.
Meghan also wore the same Alexander McQueen suit that Princess Diana wore to her first Royal evening engagement.
This brand new picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was revealed this Friday.
Its release coincided with the news that the couple will host a special edition next Tuesday of TIME100 Talks on the State of Our Shared Digital Experience.
The special episode will be presented in partnership with ‘P&G’ and it is themed around the topic of ‘Engineering a Better World,’.
The episode can be expected to depict the focus of Meghan and Harry towards building online communities that are more heartfelt, secure, and trustworthy.
There will also be a discussion on what it means to support and accelerate the progress on issues such as gender equity, climate change, etc.
Further Update On The New Official Photograph Of Meghan And Harry
The image is black and white and it presents Meghan smiling alongside her husband of two years.
Harry is seen having his protective arm behind Meghan.
The pair are wearing matching outfits.
Harry is seen without a tie and he left the top button of his shirt open. This seems to be his trademark casual style.
Meghan, on the other hand, is wearing a suit that costs about $3,000 (£2,300). Her jewellery is even more pricy and it includes her $350,000 (£271,000) engagement ring and the $23,000 (£17,800) Cartier watch that used to belong to her deceased mother-in-law.
Details On Princess Diana’s Gold Cartier Watch Worn By The Duchess Of Sussex
The watch, which is believed to be a gift from Harry, was worth $23,000 (£17,800) at the time but it must cost a whole lot more considering its legacy.
It was worn by Diana in her 1997 visit to London’s Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Temple.
Meghan is known to be a fan of the watch. She splurged on her own two-tone version back in the year 2015.
Back then, she told in an interview with ‘Hello Magazine‘, “I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season—which, at the time, felt like such a milestone—I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version”
The actress had the watch engraved on the back, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’.
Meghan revealed that she wants to gift the watch to her daughter someday.
Meghan has several other items gifted to her that belongs to Diana’s collection, like Diana’s butterfly earrings and gold bracelet.
It looks like the watch is amongst her favourite and she has often been spotted wearing the same.
The watch is known to have been a gift to Diana by her own father. It was given to her on the occasion of her 21st birthday.
Information About The Alexander McQueen Grain De Poudre Suit
In the photograph, Meghan is seen adorning an Alexander McQueen Grain de Poudre suit—blazer and trousers.
She first wore the suit in February 2018 when she went to the annual Endeavour Fund Awards.
Meghan’s outfit in that event drew loads of praise as it did not undermine the outfit of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Also, it depicted that she was including British designers into her choices.
Meghan’s version of the suit is rather a bespoke version of it.
