When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle this summer the world’s eyes were on them. More than 11 million people tuned in to watch them tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony that was unlike any royal wedding anyone had seen before.
Whenever Harry and his brother William experience a joyous occasion in their lives, it is tinged with sadness at the fact their adoring mother Princess Diana can’t be there to see it.

Diana’s passing, more than 20 years ago, has left a huge gap in these prince’s lives but her memory lives on during so many events.
On the couple’s latest state visit to Australia, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle honored the much-loved Princess Diana by wearing a piece of jewelry that belonged to Harry’s mother, reports Hello! Magazine .

On Monday, Harry and Meghan announced that they are expecting a baby in Spring 2019 – now speculation is rife as to what they will call their new royal bundle, odds are high on Diana for a girl.
Meghan wearing Diana’s earrings is a great tribute to Diana, as his sons, Prince William and Harry, were very close to their fun-loving and doting mother. According to the Daily Mail , Diana wore the earrings during a state visit to Canada in 1986.
Duchess Meghan has chosen to wear Princess Diana’s jewels on a number of high profile occasions, including on the night of her wedding.
Her bespoke engagement ring also features two diamonds that belonged to her husband’s late mother, according to the Daily Mail .
Whatever this couple does lifts my heart and honoring the late great Princess Diana is a beautiful tribute to the great work she did during her life, which was so tragically cut short.
Please share to honor this wonderful royal duo!
