Prince Harry's subtle tribute to Prince Philip hidden in Meghan Markle's engagement ring

And in commissioning the Court Jewellers, Cleave and Company, to create a ring that he himself designed, with jewels from his mother, Prince Harry followed in his late grandfather’s footsteps.

In 1947 Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh designed an engagement ring for the then Princess Elizabeth, including natural diamonds from a tiara that belonged to his mother, Princess Alice of Greece.

The band of Meghan’s ring was originally a simple one made from Welsh gold, a tradition of the royals, and given to him by the Queen.

But, not long after her pregnancy announcement the Duke of Sussex asked Hollywood designer, Lorraine Schwartz, to reset the ring to include micro pavé diamonds in the thin gold band.
