Meghan Markles fancy £5k present for Princess Lilibet she bought years before birth
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has a special £5k gift waiting for her daughter Princess Lilibet. The gift was purchased years before Lilibet's birth and even before Meghan met Prince Harry.
After landing the role of Rachel Zane on the popular TV show Suits, Meghan treated herself to a luxurious £5,000 Cartier Tank Francaise watch. She had a meaningful message engraved on the back to celebrate her success.
In a 2015 interview with Hello! magazine, she shared: "I've always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season which, at the time, felt like such a milestone I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version."
The Duchess had a special message engraved on the back that read: 'To M.M. From M.M'
She said: "I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That's what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them."
Meghan also owns Princess Diana's Cartier Tank Francaise watch, which was gifted to Diana by her father on her 21st birthday. Meghan often wears this watch, most notably during her YouTube appearance reading her children's book The Bench.
Meghan has worn other pieces that belonged to Diana, including an Emerald cut aquamarine ring surrounded by small solitaire diamonds and set in 24-carat yellow gold. She wore this at her evening reception. This ring was made by Asprey in 1997, the same year Diana died.
Meghan has also been seen wearing Diana's Cartier tennis bracelet, worth around £17,000, and a pair of her butterfly earrings during a trip to Sydney in 2018.
