When Meghan Markle embarked on her first-ever solo royal engagement with Queen Elizabeth II in 2018, the newlywed Duchess of Sussex wore a beautiful pair of pearl and diamond earrings gifted to her by the Queen - and we've found a beautiful lookalike for just £31.99 ($
The Duchess has worn the earrings on so many occasions, most poignantly to pay tribute to the Queen after Her Majesty's passing.
Meghan Markle's earrings: A gift from the Queen
It was a truly iconic moment when the Duchess of Sussex appeared alone alongside her grandmother-in-law in 2018.
The Duchess accessorised the cream caped Givenchy dress with the pair of pearl and diamond earrings that Buckingham Palace later confirmed were a gift to Meghan from her grandmother-in-law the Queen.
Queen Elizabeth II gave the pearl and diamond earrings, said to possibly be from Birks, to the Duchess in 2018
Later reflecting on their first engagement together, Meghan said: "We had breakfast together that morning, and she’d given me a beautiful gift, and I just really loved being in her company," also explaining that the gift was "some beautiful pearl earrings and a matching necklace."
