The Hidden Meaning Behind Meghan Markle’s Zodiac Necklace

Remember when Meghan Markle gave a surprise commencement speech about the Black Lives Matter movement? Well, there’s a good chance you missed the subtle tribute she wore for her and Prince Harry’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, recently filmed a personal video message for the graduating class of her alma mater, Immaculate Heart High School. In the clip, Markle is wearing a necklace that holds a special place in her heart.

Specifically, she’s donning the Vanessa pendant, which pays tribute to Archie’s zodiac sign, Taurus. (He was born on May 6, 2019.) The accessory is made by Canadian-based company Suetables, which specializes in personalized jewelry.

While the silver version retails for only $39, Markle is wearing the 10k gold pendant, which costs $199. Cha-ching!

This isn’t the first time Markle has worn the necklace. In fact, she previously donned the accessory during a royal outing, followed by her Good Morning America interview. Still, we can’t help but wonder if there was a hidden message behind Markle’s jewelry choice.

The duchess usually pairs the pendant with a Virgo charm for Prince Harry, which was noticeably missing.

Perhaps the solo necklace represented Archie’s future education? Or maybe it symbolized hope for the next generation? Either way, it didn’t go unnoticed.
