Meghan Markle appeared to pay homage to the beginnings of her romance with Prince Harry yesterday as she sported an all-white outfit with her wedding accessories.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, wore a £3,200 white Valentino suit alongside her wedding shoes and earrings as she stepped out at the Invictus Games in The Hague.

Alongside the oversized white suit, Meghan opted for the bespoke pair of Shiver Aquazurra shoes in white silky satin with a mesh overlay, estimated to cost £700.

Paired in a white suit, Meghan appeared to be giving a nod to her wedding day. Fittingly, it was the Invictus Games in 2017 where Meghan and Harry made their very first public appearance.

Going to Valentino all around, she carried a £2,200 off-white bag from the Italian designer. She also accessorized a gold “love pendant” by designer Sophie Lis, which references a French poem about lasting and growing love – thought to be a gift from Prince Harry.

The necklace, first worn by Meghan in 2020, is made by designer Sophie Lis, is engraved “Qu’hier” after a diamond-encrusted plus sign, and “Que Demain” followed by a ruby ​​minus sign.

The reference is an ode by the 19th century French poet Rosemonde Gérard which translates to: “Every day I love you more, more than yesterday less than tomorrow”.

Meghan let her hair flow in loose waves and opted for diamond earrings, which she wore to her wedding, and Princess Diana’s Cartier watch.

Alongside the oversized white suit, Meghan opted for the bespoke pair of Shiver Aquazurra shoes in white silky satin with a mesh overlay, estimated to cost £700.

The watch, believed to be a gift from Harry, was worth $23,000 (£17,800) at the time, but is now likely worth much more given its history.

The elegant watch has been worn by Diana on several occasions, including during a 1997 visit to the Hindu temple Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in London and during an engagement with the British Lung Foundation the same year.

Today Meghan added more sweet tributes to Prince Harry, including wearing her £5,300 Cartier Love bracelet.

It’s a design she’s worn on a number of occasions in the past, and was also said to have been a gift from Prince Harry at the start of their romance.

Cartier’s oval band is made up of two C-shaped halves screwed together and the only way to remove it is with a screwdriver, like the 18-carat one provided – a feature said to be inspired by medieval chastity belts.
