Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry wife new engagement ring design slammed as ‘ODD’
One royal editor has been vocal about her take on Meghan’s redesign of her ring.
She called it “odd” and “a piece of history.”
Editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward told Fabulous: “I find it a bit odd Meghan would want to alter a ring that her husband had especially designed for her.
“A royal engagement ring is a piece of history not a bit of jewellery to be updated when it looks old fashioned.”
Twitter users were also divided in their views about the redesign.
“Just makes one wonder why the original was just not good enough,” one said.
Another added: “This is what she said of the original ring: Meghan added: ‘It’s beautiful, and he designed it, it’s incredible. ‘
“So, why did she totally redesign it then?”
However, another defended Meghan’s decision, stating it was likely a choice between the the couple.
“How about Harry & Meghan made a mutual decision within their marriage regarding the engagement ring,” they said.
Another wrote: “I like Meghan’s new ring. The original ring was clunky and a little dated. This redesign is sleek and really her style.”
Some pointed out Meghan’s new engagement ring now shares some similarities to her engagement ring from her first husband.
One wrote: “Not only did she upgrade her current engagement ring after one year, she made it look a lot like her old one. And that eternity band. Deja vu.”
Another wrote: “(Meghan) has redesigned her ring to look like the one Trevor gave her!!!” (sic)
Meghan’s ring from Trevor, her film producer ex, featured a large square diamond set on two sparkling pave bands.
Meghan met Trevor in 2004 and they married in 2011 in Jamaica. However, they divorced in 2013. She met Prince Harry in June 2016.
