Meghan Markle Wore $25,000 Worth of Princess Diana’s Cartier

Meghan Markle, wearing a $245 cream knitted vest from Los Angeles-based designer Anine Bing, added a touch of glitz to her ensemble with her late mother-in-law Princess Diana’s $17,800 gold Cartier Tank watch.

She also wore her $5,000 Cartier Love bangle as well as her $271,000 engagement ring – which she is thought to have teamed with a $3,000 mini gold tennis bracelet designed by Jennifer Meyer.

Meghan wore a pair of $1,040 beige wide-leg wool blend trousers by Brandon Maxwell to help complete her look at the event. She finished off the look with dainty golden stud earrings.

Her presence at today’s event was a sign of how seriously the royal family takes the Invictus Games.

The Tank watch, once owned by Princess Diana and thought to be gifted to Meghan by Harry, was priced at $17,800 at the time. However, given its history, it is likely now worth a lot more.

Princess Diana wore the elegant timepiece to a number of occasions—including a 1997 visit to London’s Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Temple and an engagement at the British Lung Foundation that same year.

Meghan Markle is known to be a fan of the Tank watch, and she splurged on her own two-tone version when ‘Suits’ was picked up for a third season.

According to Hello Magazine and Daily Mail, “I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season—which, at the time, felt like such a milestone—I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version.”

“I had it engraved on the back, “To M.M. From M.M.” and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.”

Meghan has been gifted several items from Diana’s collection, including the butterfly earrings and gold bracelet she wore during their Australian tour in 2018.
