Meghan Markle wears Princess Diana’s bracelet for the Salute to Freedom Gala

Meghan Markle brought some special bling to the red carpet.

While attending the Salute to Freedom gala on Wednesday, the 40-year-old Duchess of Sussex Princess Diana Cartier wore diamond tennis bracelets.

She paired the special sparkle with her all-red outfit – a Carolina Herrera dress and matching Giuseppe Zanotti heels – for the event at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in NYC, additional accessories with a Cartier bracelet in gold and Birks earrings.

Markle went on the red carpet with Prince Harry, who presented the 2021 Intrepid Valor Awards to five U.S. service members at the gala.

This is hardly the first time Markle has chosen Princess Diana’s bracelet for a public appearance, as she memorably wore the same precious piece during her overriding interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

“They wanted to wear the bracelet to have [Harry’s] mother there with them during the interview, “a spokeswoman for the Duchess explained to the show” Today “at the time.

However, the meaningful bling has been part of Markle’s collection for a much longer time when she first wore the Cartier design to a state dinner in Fiji and a reception in Tonga in October 2018.

Even when she’s not wearing the bracelet, the former “Suits” star has part of the special piece with her; two diamonds from the design were used to create her three-stone engagement ring in 2017.

“The headstone itself I picked up from Botswana, and the small diamonds [on] both sides are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure she’s with us on this – on this crazy journey together, ”Prince Harry said at the time.

Markle often nods to her late mother-in-law at important moments, whether she’s wearing her aquamarine ring during her 2018 wedding reception or paying tribute to her outfit at Trooping the Color the same year.

Most recently, she wore a modern rendition of the royal go-to Dior bag for a performance at Global Citizen Live in NYC in September.
