Meghan Markle spotted with a broad collection of jewelry as she made a brief appearance at the star-studded Vax Live concert.
The Duchess of Sussex wore stacks of jewels as she appeared in a pre-recorded message from her home at the concert.
Meghan —who is known for her love of expensive designer clothing and symbolic jewelry— wore a red £1,200 ($1,600) Carolina Herrera shirt dress for the occasion.
The Duchess also paired the look with various gold jewelry, including Princess Diana‘s £17,800 ($25,000) Cartier watch, a £5,000 ($7,000) Cartier bracelet, another £2,361 ($3,300) bracelet, and a £102 ($143) necklace featuring a ‘woman’s power’ charm.
Meghan is a fan of wearing several pieces of jewelry at once, contradicting the royal trend for keeping accessories to a minimum.
She wore Princess Diana’s gold Cartier Tank watch, which is believed to be a present from Prince Harry. It was worth $23,000 (£17,800) at the time but is now expected to worth a lot more given its history.
The watch was worn by Diana on 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.
During her appearance in the telecast, Meghan said: “As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it’s critical that our recovery prioritizes the health, safety, and success of everyone, but particularly women who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.”
“Women, and especially women of color, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out,” she continued. “My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter.”
“It’s a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world,” she said. “When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward.”
