MEGHAN MARKLE dazzled the public on a visit to Canada House today, wearing eco designed £120 swallow earrings by Kate Middleton’s favourite jeweller Catherine Zoraida.

Kate has been a long time fan of the mid range jewellery designer, and has been spotted wearing her pieces dozens of times.

The Duchess first wore Zoraida’s designs back in 2012, and has been a firm fan ever since.

In 2019, Kate was spotted wearing the earrings four times.

On a visit to East Anglia’s Children’s hospice back in November, she wore the ‘fern hoop’ teamed with a Oscar de la Renta suit.

In an interview with the Mail Online Zoraida explained how her relationship with Kate began.

“It was just before the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Tour and amazingly she ended up wearing some of these pieces.”

“She wore the earrings and a bracelet to dinner with the King of Malaysia. Suddenly people were trying to guess this new jewellery designer and when they found out it was me they just went crazy.”

It now seems that Zoraida has found a new royal fan in Meghan.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the low key swallow studs on a visit to Canada House to meet with the country’s high commissioner.

The earrings which retail for £120 are 18-carat gold-plated eco silver that have been designed to raise money for the RSPB, with 10% of the sales being donated to charity.

Dressed in a form fitting polo neck, paired with a flowing silk skirt, Meghan looked radiant after returning from a six week break from royal duties.

The Duchess greeted the crowds with a beaming smile, which comes after she spoke with Tom Bradby last October of her battle with mental health.

“I really tried to adopt this sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I tried, I really tried. But I think that what that does internally is probably really challenging.”

Evidently the trip across the seas to Canada’s Vancouver Island has much refreshed the Duchess, as she held on tightly to Prince Harry’s arm.

One confidante told The Sun: “They are back to work. They have nothing to hide and have got so much good work to do.”

The Sussexes are set to launch their royal foundation this year and in a discussion with the Canadian High Commissioner outlined his plans.

“There’s a hell of a lot of work to be done and things to be talked through but a very useful conversation.”

The couple also discussed with staff at the Canadian embassy the wonderful scenery and tranquillity they experienced in their country.

By all means the Duke and Duchess seemed in good spirits after lying low from the royal fallout of skipping Christmas at Sandringham.

The friend continued: “They very much enjoyed their time over Christmas and New Year where they weren’t pictured once and were left alone.”

Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland is said to have visited the royal couple during their stay at the $14.1 million home in Vancouver Island that they rented for a number of weeks.

The couple who only arrived home recently, are said to still be “jet-lagged” according to royal aides.

However they have already had a team meeting with staff at Buckingham Palace on Monday, which could have included their plans to spend more time in Canada this year.

Although the pair at times have clashed with the media, royal insiders have said that there is no suggestion the have resolved to do things any differently this year.
