Before her tragic death, Princess Diana made it clear that she wanted her stunning collection of jewelry to go to her sons’ future wives. In a “letter of wishes,” she wrote, “I would like you to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it. I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion.” Over the course of their relationship, Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle has been seen sporting a number of items that once belonged to his mother, from butterfly earrings to a vibrant cocktail ring. Here are all the pieces of Diana’s jewelry that Meghan inherited from Princess Diana.

Gold Butterfly Earrings

Meghan clearly has an affinity for dainty gold earrings, like this pair of butterfly studs, which once belonged to her late mother-in-law. Meghan initially wore the earrings in Australia for her first public appearance following the announcement of her pregnancy.


Aquamarine Cocktail Ring

On Meghan’s wedding day, she debuted two rings: a simple wedding band made of Welsh gold, and Princess Diana’s Aquamarine ring. After the ceremony, Meghan changed to head to her reception at Frogmore House (top) and was first photographed wearing the colorful piece of jewelry. More recently, she brought it out on her royal tour of Tonga, at a welcome reception with the country’s king and queen (above). The ring is actually part of a set, with a matching bracelet, but at this point, it’s unclear if the Duchess of Sussex received both pieces.


Meghan’s Engagement Ring

Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mother’s iconic sapphire and diamond ring, but Meghan’s engagement ring also has a special tie to Princess Diana. Harry crafted a custom design for Meghan, which featured one diamond sourced from Botswana and two smaller stones from Princess Diana’s collection.

At the 2022 Invictus Games, the Duchess of Sussex wore a gold Cartier Tank watch. It has long been speculated that Meghan may have inherited the watch from Diana, though it has yet to be confirmed. (Meghan also owns a version of the watch that she purchased for herself to celebrate her pre-royal stint on the show Suits.)

Since then, she has been spotted wearing the timepiece on several occasions, most recently while promoting her new podcast, Archetypes.
