Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, recently honored her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, in a touching way. During a three-day visit to Nigeria with her husband, Prince Harry, Meghan wore a special piece of jewelry that once belonged to Princess Diana.

The jewelry, a diamond cross pendant on a gold chain, was a gift from Harry, taken from his mother’s private collection.

On May 11, 2024, the couple attended a program at the Armed Forces Complex in Abuja, Nigeria, where Meghan wore this meaningful necklace. Meghan has a habit of paying tribute to Princess Diana through her fashion choices and jewelry. During the trip, she was also seen wearing a gold collar necklace similar to one Diana wore when she visited Nigeria in 1991. Additionally, Meghan often wears Princess Diana’s gold Cartier Tank Française watch, which is one of her favorite pieces.

Princess Diana, known for her love and care for her sons, had written a letter asking that her jewelry be passed down to their future wives. She wanted them to share and enjoy her cherished items. In her letter, she stated, “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.”

Meghan’s engagement ring is another beautiful example of this legacy. Designed by Harry, it features diamonds from his mother’s collection. In an interview with the BBC, Harry explained, “The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s [Meghan’s] favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection, to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”

Seeing Meghan continue to honor Princess Diana in these ways is heartwarming. It shows the lasting impact of Diana’s love and how her memory lives on through her family.

Meghan’s thoughtful tributes are a beautiful reminder of the connection between past and present, and they keep Princess Diana’s spirit alive in the hearts of many.
