Britain’s favourite son is getting married today (May 19, 2018). To celebrate the royal wedding, Secrets is winding back the clock to the moment Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement to the world.
Suits star, Markle, traded the popular US soap for the drama of the world stage when she agreed to marry the mischievous prince in November last year. The former actress, however, is bracing for her biggest TV moment yet when she says, “I do”, in front of an estimated global audience of more than two billion.
Markle’s not the first divorced American to marry a British royal. King Edward VIII chose love over duty and abdicated the throne to make American socialite Wallis Simpson his wife. But far from causing an almighty scandal (like the Edward-Simpson affair), the Harry-Markle marriage is testament to a softening in attitude by Kensington Palace. It’s speculated the Queen will give Markle the title, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex, upon the exchange of nuptials at St George’s Chapel.
Speculation is rife too among Royal-watchers about how Markle will look on her wedding day, from her gown right down to her slippers, but what Secrets really wants to know is what jewels she’ll be wearing.
If Markle’s engagement ring is anything to go by, her wedding jewellery will be just as unconventional as the couple itself. Harry bucked tradition when he put a three-stone diamond engagement ring on Meghan’s finger. Traditionally an anniversary ring, the three stones represent a couple’s yesterday, today and tomorrow. It certainly was a daring departure from the classic diamond solitaire. Secrets’ approximation of the Markle ring is this royally posh round and cushion cut diamond simulant engagement ring with trilliant cut side stones.
And as we can barely wait for Markle’s grand reveal, Secrets has compiled its own look here, which we think is fitting for an ‘everyday’ Duchess. In keeping with the three-stone theme, we’re suggesting these jaw-dropping three-tier
round brilliant drop earrings and equally brilliant matching three-tier round brilliant drop pendant. If you desire to sparkle like Markle, shop now at Secrets.
