The newest member of the royal family and Queen Elizabeth attended their very first royal engagement together today – or at least the first without Prince Harry also present! In the new paparazzi photos, Meghan Markle can be seen wearing a gorgeous pair of pearl and diamond earrings, apparently gifted by the Queen herself!
The pieces of jewelry, which seemed to be a smaller version of the monarch’s looked perfect while worn with the classy eggshell colored Givenchy dress Meghan had on.
The Palace has told E! News that the earrings were indeed a gift from the Queen.
Amanda Dishaw, of Meghan’s Mirror, stated: ‘We loved the personal touch that was shared between the Queen and her new granddaughter-in-law when the Queen gifted Meghan with a pair of pearl earrings, which Meghan wore today. We love to think of the Queen digging through her personal collection to find something for Meghan, and then also of how special those earrings will be to Meghan.’
Although that is a nice thought, we are not yet sure whether the pair was already in Queen Elizabeth’s collection or if she purchased them, especially for Harry’s new wife.
But we do know that she did lend Meghan Queen Mary’s Diamond Bandeau tiara to wear at the royal wedding on May 19, so maybe this is what happened this time around as well.
At the event with the Queen, Markle also accessorized her dress with a black clutch, belt and matching pointy pumps.
Dishaw went on to talk about the look: ‘The black, classic accessories made the look timeless—we could definitely see it again in the years to come! Much like the Duchess of Cambridge went on to favor looks from her wedding dress designer, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Meghan’s look might signal the start of a similar relationship with her wedding dress designer, Clare Wight Keller.’
‘It is definitely too early to confirm if Meghan will continue to turn to Ms. Keller and Givenchy for her future stylings, but today was definitely a good steer in that direction, with Meghan pairing a Givenchy belt and bag with her bespoke dress.’
