Meghan, who gleamed in a custom-made Louis Vuitton gown, called to mind the couple’s 2018 nuptials by wearing the late Princess of Wales’ aquamarine ring, which she last wore as her “something blue” at the reception at Frogmore Cottage

Teamed with a matching Givenchy clutch and gold earrings, the emerald-cut sparkler was commissioned by Diana from British jewellery brand Asprey in 1996 as a replacement for her engagement ring after her divorce from King Charles III.

The ring, which is estimated to be worth a staggering $90,000, was first spotted on Princess Diana during a trip to Australia. She was also pictured wearing the ring at a private viewing and reception at Christie’s for the Aid Crisis Trust in 1997, just two months before her tragic death.
