This year’s grand Trooping the Colour was just like any other - a truly glorious event to behold!
It’s a day in which Queen Elizabeth’s birthday is celebrated with a grand parade of over 1,400 sharply dressed soldiers, 200 sleek horses, and 400 highly skilled musicians. For this spectacular celebration, all members of the royal family attend dressed in their finest attire.
Many were shocked, thrilled, and everything in between when they realized that the new mother, Duchess Meghan Markle, took a brief step away from her maternity leave to make her first public appearance since giving birth.
She certainly wowed in a stunning navy cape and wool crepe cocktail dress tastefully accented by white cap sleeves. It was nothing short of royal, to say the least, and was a nod to her wedding day. She paired the look with a navy Noel Stewart fascinator and her hair was worn in a sleek bun.
One accessory seemed to catch a ton of attention by only her truest fans and many others are just beginning to take notice.
As Meghan rode through the parade procession during this grand event, some eagle-eyed fans happened to see that on her left ring finger, Meghan not only was wearing her engagement and wedding band, but a third ring was also present.
Without hesitation, diligent research began and it wasn’t long until the reason for this new addition was confirmed. The third ring she was wearing was actually an eternity ring that was gifted to her by none other than her real-life Prince Charming, Harry!
According to sources: “Eternity rings are traditionally gifted following a milestone event, like the birth of a child or a wedding anniversary, and are typically covered in diamonds in an infinite loop around the band.”
This is not the first time an eternity ring has been spotted on the hand of a royal woman, though. Duchess Kate also has one that William gave her shortly after Prince George was born.
While it is very hard to spot, it comes as no surprise that it didn’t stay hidden from the public for very long. Its delicate design pairs beautifully with her wedding and engagement ring.
We’re so thrilled to have had the opportunity to see the brand new mama back in action - even if it was only for a brief moment. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing her again in the future!
