He used Princess Diana's diamonds!
That’s right, the ring, which Harry designed himself, carries three stones – the large central stone is from Botswana, the place Harry took Markle on a five-day trip just weeks after they started dating, and the two side stones are from Diana’s private collection.
Markle talked about how much she loved the history behind the ring during the pair's interview.
“It’s incredibly special to be able to have this, which sort of links where you come from and Botswana, which is important to us, and it’s perfect,” Markle said.
Harry concurred. “Then we were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me.”
The makers of the ring were very pleased.
Cleave and Company, official jewelers to Queen Elizabeth II, made the ring, and the company’s director said in a statement that it was “greatly honored to have been of service.”
Of course they were!
People on social media are equally stoked.
Yes he is!
The man literally put more thought and romance into a freaking engagement ring than most people put into their weddings (okay, that might be an exaggeration, but still, this is how we feel.)
This commenter agreed.
Aren’t they though?!
There’s only one bummer about this whole thing – Meghan won’t be a princess since she’s not born into the royal family.
But to us, she’s already Princess Meg!
