When Meghan Markle stepped out at the annual Trooping the Colour parade in the UK on June 8, it would be safe to say her fans lost it. It marked an exciting moment for the royal, who hadn’t attended a public engagement since the birth of her brand new baby boy, Archie.
And while her drool-worthy navy blue ensemble by her wedding dress designer Clare Waight Keller had us all enamored from the moment we locked eyes on the new mom, there was something else about her outfit that really got us talking.
We are, of course, talking about Meghan’s mysterious new ring she wore for the event. Sitting next to her wedding band, you couldn’t miss that sparkling piece of bling if you tried.
But what really stopped people in their tracks over said ring was the meaning behind it — because we all know that nothing this royal wears comes without a very special reason.
Now, after several days of theories, we’ve finally got an answer as to where the ring came from. According to a new report from People, the new ring was, in fact, an anniversary gift from Prince Harry. Excuse us as we go and weep tears of joy. How cute!
The ring, known as an eternity ring, is usually covered in diamonds with an infinity loop, much like the one Meghan wore. Many believed the ring might have been a push present from Prince Harry following the birth of their newborn son, as Kate Middleton received something similar from Prince William as a gift when she welcomed their first child, Prince George. And new bling wasn’t the only thing the royal ladies had in common during the exciting outing.
Many were thrilled to see the pair arrive at Trooping the Colour together, with both Meghan and Kate sharing an animated conversation as they entered via horse-drawn carriage. At one point, the pair are seen roaring with laughter together — an important and exciting sighting that’s suggested those feud rumors can finally be put to bed.
While the outing was undoubtedly an exciting one for Meghan, it’s expected there’s still a while to go until we see her return to her normal royal duties and outings after she completes her maternity leave.
The next big moment we’re waiting for is Archie’s christening, which is sure to include an exciting new outfit choice with meaning from the royal mom, as well as providing our second official sighting of the newborn. Stay tuned!
