Royal bride wears something blue from Princess Diana’s jewellery archive

The royal bride managed to wear something old, a whole lot of new, something borrowed, and something blue on her big day.

When the bride first arrive at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, only three out of the traditional elements could be counted, but later on in the day Prince Harry gifted her with something blue.

The something old was a pair of Cartier earrings Meghan Markle has been spotted wearing previously, while the something new was her bespoke Givenchy haute couture dress and five-metre veil.

The veil was then held in place by something borrowed from the Queen’s jewellery vault – the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau tiara.

In the evening, as the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex left Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House, a change of clothes saw Prince Harry’s wife adorned in something blue and sparkling on her right hand.

The bride was wearing a striking emerald-cut aquamarine ring owned by the groom’s late mother, Princess Diana.

The ring was designed by Royal Warrent holder Asprey in 1997, and was given to the newest member of the royal family as a wedding gift from her husband.

Princess Diana was pictured wearing the ring at a private viewing of the Christie’s auction of her dresses in 1997.
