Meghan Markle could have had Princess Dianas precious engagement ring – Devon Live

Meghan Markle has reportedly been ‘banned’ from wearing jewellery from the royal collection, a move that was approved by The Queen and backed by Prince William, it has been claimed.

It comes as talks between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William have allegedly been put on hold following concerns over ‘leaks’ which Buckingham Palace sources claims came from the Sussexes.

Prince Charles reportedly wanted Prince William and Harry to speak to each other after they saw each other during their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral.

Harry returned home to spend time with his pregnant wife and son in the US after the funeral of his grandfather.

The Royal Collection includes hundreds of historic pieces of jewellery including diamond necklaces, brooches and tiaras including the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara, which can also be worn as a necklace, and was made for Queen Mary in 1919, reports BirminghamLive.

It also includes jewels worn by Meghan’s late mother-in-law Princess Diana.

Kate Middleton on the contrary has previously been pictured wearing jewellery from the collection, including The Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara designed by Queen Mary, which became one of Diana’s signature tiaras.

It is not the first time Meghan has reportedly missed out on royal jewellery.

Prince Harry made a touching sacrifice to his sister-in-law Kate Middleton before her wedding to the Duke of Cambridge.

Kate’s iconic engagement ring actually belonged to Harry following the death of Princess Diana in 1997, former royal butler Paul Burrell confirmed.

Harry offered his brother the chance to use it instead, though.

Paul said: “Harry said to him: ‘Wouldn’t it be fitting if she had mummy’s ring?’.”

“Then one day that ring will be sat on the throne of England. Harry gave up his precious treasure.

“His one thing he kept from his mother, he gave to his brother. That’s selfless, kind and exactly who Diana was.”

Burrell made the comments in an Amazon Prime documentary, it has been reported.
