Meghan Markle was accepted into the royal fold after her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018. The couple has made headlines, often in a negative light ever since.
While there was discord between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family, there is also a genuine love that they share with one another…
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were already in the United Kingdom for work-related engagements when the news of the Queen’s ill-health reached them. The couple canceled all their previous engagements, and Harry rushed to Scotland on a flight to see his grandmother for one last time.
Unfortunately, the Queen passed away just a little bit before Harry’s flight had landed and before he could see her at her Balmoral estate for one last time.
Once the death was announced, the Royal Family sprang into action and began procedures put in place years ago. One of the most important things for any member of the family to do is to make sure they wear black.
The color black is a visual symbol of grief that the family depicts. The family also wears symbolic jewelry with meaning as well as any military tokens they have as a sign of their respect.
In the service held at Westminister Hall, which was the Queen’s last time leaving Buckingham Palace, the Duchess of Sussex seemed to have drawn inspiration from her sister-in-law.
The Princess of Wales wore pearl drop earrings that were once worn by Princess Diana, and a brooch that once belonged to the Queen, Meghan kept her jewelry similar. She wore a classic pearl and diamond studs which were given to her by the Queen herself. Since a lot of pictures of the Royal Family were to be taken in cars from the shoulder up, it was important to wear earpieces that meant something.
