Fans spot major change to Duchess Meghan’s engagement ring

Fans spot major change to Duchess Meghan’s engagement ring

The Duchess of Sussex has made her first appearance since giving birth to baby Archie.

The eagerly awaited return was widely praised by royal fans all over the world and naturally all eyes were on Duchess Meghan who had not been seen for months before the Trooping the Colour parade.

Royal watchers did not miss a single detail when it came to the glowing new mother, and were quick to point out a stunning new addition to her finger – a diamond eternity band.

It is likely the dazzling change to the royal’s hand is a present from her husband in honour of either the birth of their first child or one year of blissful marriage together.

However, amongst all the excitement of the new addition – fans and eagle-eyed watchers happened to graze over a massive change to the Duchess’ three-stone engagement ring.

For this year’s annual celebration of the Queen’s birthday, pictures taken of Duchess Meghan appear to show the ring has been reset and now instead of the original solid yellow gold band, it is now an ultra-thin micro-pavé one.

Reports are not clear on when the Duchess made the significant change – but thankfully it has not gone unnoticed.

During her final months of pregnancy, Duchess Meghan opted to go without her engagement ring – possibly due to her fingers swelling.

During Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s first interview together to confirm their engagement, the prince said the ring was “obviously” yellow gold as it is her favourite.

“…The main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together,” he said.

The Duchess went on to add: “Everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of Princess Diana’s stones and obviously not being able to meet his mom,”

“It’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us."
