When he proposed to her in November 2017, Prince Harry offered Meghan Markle a sumptuous gold ring. A year and a half later, the young woman unveiled a slightly modified ring to her ring finger. A change which did not fail to question the aficionados of the British Crown …
It was a change that had the gift of disturbing fans of the British Crown. In November 2017, Meghan Markle unveiled to the world the magnificent engagement ring that Prince Harry had given her. The son of Prince Charles, who was very involved in the making of this jewel, had imagined and designed it himself.
The ring in question was then composed of a simple gold ring, decorated in its center with a diamond from Botswana, a country dear to the heart of the Duke of Sussex. In order to make it even more unique – nothing is too beautiful for the eyes of his beloved and beloved – Prince Harry had added two diamonds from the personal collection of his mother, Princess Lady Diana.
Almost a year and a half later, during the traditional Trooping the Colour parade in June 2019, little Archie’s mother still wore a ring on her left ring finger, but this time it seemed different… And for good reason, this one has been transformed.

Prince Harry “romantic” and “caring”
Just like the jewel offered for his engagement to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry saw things in a big way. The ring of eternity offered to the mother of his son has an important meaning because it has three symbolic stones.
The green emerald represents little Archie and symbolizes rebirth and love. The blue sapphire corresponds to Harry and is considered a stone capable of protecting those close to you. Finally, the peridot stone, olive green, is associated with Meghan and is believed to give power to the wearer.
In comments reported by the authors of Finding Freedom, the jeweler in charge of making this ring revealed that the Duke of Sussex wanted this jewel to be “special”, stating that William’s brother was a “romantic” and “caring” person. Love with a capital A…
