- Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) debuted a newly-designed engagement ring with Prince Harry following the birth of Archie
- The Duchess swapped the solid gold band for a daintier, pave style without anyone even noticing
Meghan Markle's engagement ring is, arguably, one of the most famous rings in the world. So when we found out that the Duchess carried out a subtle redesign on the ring without anybody noticing, we were equal parts shocked and impressed.
To refresh your memory, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan back in 2017 over a ~romantic~ chicken dinner. The couple then debuted the engagement ring at their public engagement announcement outside Kensington Palace.
The ring itself features three stones: a larger diamond flanked by two smaller diamonds taken from Princess Diana's own collection.
Sure enough, the piece appeared on Meghan's hand at subsequent public appearances:
But following their wedding, royal fans noticed in March that the Duchess wasn't wearing her engagement ring - believed to be due to possible swelling of the fingers during her pregnancy.
While this was probably a largely logistical decision, the ring-free time offered the perfect opportunity for the ring to be redesigned.
Fast-forward to May, when Meghan and Harry stepped out for the first time following the birth of baby Archie, and the Duchess appears to be sporting a similar albeit noticeably different ring.
When you zoom in, you can see that the solid gold band appears to be swapped for a slimmer, pave-style band:
We, for one, love the new design.
