Meghan wears Princess Diana’s Cartier watch for new portrait with Prince Harry

Ahead of their appearance in a special episode of Time100 Talks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a timeless black and white portrait of themselves.

Taken in their new Californian home, the portrait shows Markle looking spectacular in an Alexander McQueen two-piece tuxedo which she first debuted in 2018.

In keeping with the ensemble’s classic vibe, the mother-of-one paired her Cartier Tank Francaise watch with the look, which it is believed previously belonged to the late Princess Diana.

Indeed, even before she met Prince Harry, the former actress had expressed her desire for the classic watch. Speaking to Hello! magazine in 2015, she said: “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.”

In the same piece, she explained that she had the watch engraved with the message “To M.M. From M.M,” adding that she planned on one day giving the timepiece to her daughter.

Fans also began speculating whether the ring on the pinky finger of her right hand also previously belonged to Princess Diana.

On Tuesday 20 October, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will host an episode of Time100 Talks, which will feature guests including Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and the hosts of Teenager Therapy, the podcast on which the couple recently appeared.
