Meghan Markle’s Newest Piece of Bling Pays Homage to Prince Harry & Archie
In case you missed it, Meghan Markle, chill royal, took a commercial flight to New York this past weekend to watch her dear friend Serena Williams face off against Bianca Andreescu in the U.S. Open finals. A duchess sighting on U.S. soil is reason enough to celebrate, but in typical Markle fashion, the 38-year-old new mom gave us a lot more to be excited about than just the match.
The Duchess of Sussex arrived at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens on Saturday dressed in a relaxed J.Crew denim shirtdress, a gray cape-like coat and one of her go-to bags, a Carolina Herrera carryall. But it was the little something around her neck that really caught our attention
Markle donned a delicate gold necklace with two dog tag initial pendants for her day as a spectator. But these weren’t just any pendants. In fact, they paid tribute to Prince Harry and their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
The duchess selected the Mini Mini Jewels Diamond Accented Dog Tag Initial Pendant Necklace with both an “A” for Archie and an “H” for Harry. Surprisingly, the piece is rather affordable. Each of Markle’s 14-karat-gold dog tags runs for $250 and can also be purchased in rose gold or silver. The diamond is a delicate .014 carat, but it definitely adds a little something to the touching memento.
Throughout the match, Markle repeatedly touched her bauble and distractedly pulled it toward her mouth, suggesting that she had her boys on her mind. While the Duchess of Sussex spent time in New York with her friends, both Prince Harry and Archie stayed home at the family’s Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and enjoyed quality time together.
Markle is set to make her first official post-maternity-leave appearance on Thursday, September 12, so we’ll have to wait and see if she wears her dog tags again. All signs point to yes.
