The Meghan Markle Engagement Ring

UPDATED:

As soon as word spread of Prince Harry’s engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, all questions circled around only one topic: The ring!

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and American actress Meghan Markle got engaged in November 2017. The media hype around the couple and their wedding, which was held in May 2018, was huge. The famous engagement ring of Princess Diana, mother to Harry and his older brother William, had already been gifted to William's now wife Kate Middleton. Consequently, when the couple officially announced their engagement on November 27th, the spotlights were pointed on Meghan ring finger.

According to media reports, the ring’s design was the idea of Prince Harry himself and was manufactured by the royal jeweler Cleave and Company.

The ring is adorned by three diamonds – the biggest one in the middle, surrounded by two smaller stones. Prince Harry bought the centerpiece in Botswana, a country he is very fond of and has often visited. But especially the two smaller diamonds have a highly personal background: They stem from a piece of jewelry previously owned by the Prince’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Thereby, Harry follows the family tradition. His older brother William proposed to Kate Middleton in 2010, endowing her the now world-famous engagement ring his mother had chosen herself for her engagement with Prince Charles.
