Meghan Markle wears Princess Diana's bracelet for Oprah interview alongside gift from Harry
By MIRROR | 1 month ago
When Meghan Markle prepared to sit down with Oprah Winfrey, she knew her interview would be watched by millions of people around the world.
Fans and royal watchers will be analysing every little detail of the programme, from what she says to pauses and body language.
Preview clips from the interview, which airs this weekend, give us the first glimpse of the interview - including what she's wearing.
As well as her stunning Sh502,000 (£3,300) Armani dress, she's wearing two notable pieces of jewellery - a bracelet that belonged to her late mother-in-law and another that's believed to be a gift from Prince Harry.
Diana's beautiful diamond tennis bracelet is by Cartier, and a new version would set you back at least Sh1.8 million (£12,000).
On the same wrist she wears another Cartier piece, this time a gold Love Bracelet which is believed to be a present from Harry, reports Mail Online.
Fashion blog Meghan's fashion claims the necklace she is wearing is by designer Pippa Small's Aquamarine Collette Pendant Cord Necklace, which costs Sh213,000 (£1,400).
She wore the stunning piece with a blue wrap dress during her royal tour of Australia and Fiji when she was pregnant with Archie.
One royal expert believes that Meghan used her outfit to send a powerful message to fans.
She opted for black silk dress by Armani which features beautiful floral embroidery over one shoulder and a high-waist belt.
Writing for Town & Country, Victoria Murphy points out that the lotus flowers that feature on her dress are associated with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment, and are known for their ability to flourish in challenging conditions. She writes: "It is well known that members of the royal family often use their outfits to send a message, through the choice of style or color or motif.
"And even though she has stepped back as a working royal, the Duchess of Sussex appears to be continuing to adopt this trend."
Meanwhile Harry opted for a smart grey suit with a white shirt for the interview.
As well as the bracelet, body language expert claims there may be some other similarities to Diana in the upcoming interview.
Speaking to The Mirror, Judi James said: "She has that slightly enigmatic smile that Diana had in the Bashir interview."
She went on to explain that her face may have mirrored Diana's but that her body language did not.
Judi continued: "It is not the same body luggage. Diana had tragic eyes - it was all about the eyes."
Revealing that Meghan was oozing confidence, with Harry by her side, despite her not speaking in the clips, Judi added: "I think she would be fine alone, she looks totally fine. Her [eyes] are, if anything, slightly narrow she isn’t doing tragically vulnerable."
Opening up on how Harry's body language differed from his wife, she told: "Harry on the other hand much less self-assured.
"He is sat diagonally and he is kind of looks a lot more awkward."
