Princess Diana’s memory was always going to shine brightly at her youngest son Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle.

But no one expected that her legacy would get a chance to glitter in such a poignant and significant way.

For the newlyweds second wedding reception, Meghan Markle was dressed in a custom silk “lily white” Stella McCartney evening dress.

And placed on her right ring finger was a dazzling aquamarine ring, which has been confirmed to be one of Princess Diana’s favorite pieces.

Meghan represented her “something blue” through the iconic Diana piece in the most elegant way.

The new Duchess of Sussex received the beautiful ring from her husband, the new Duke of Sussex, to celebrate their new adventure.

It’s not the first time Princess Diana has played a role in the jewels Prince Harry has given to Meghan.

The star’s engagement ring features two diamonds from Prince Harry’s mother’s collection.

Harry would have no doubt shared with his wife the significance of the piece.

Princess Diana famously wore the ring back in 1997, when she attended the Christies auction of her memorable outfits back in 1997.

But astute royalists will know that she actually debuted the stunner in Australia back in October 1996 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre where she went to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute Dinner Dance.

The ring is part of a set, which is accompanied by a pearl bracelet with a matching aquamarine stone placed in the centre.

The couple also paid tribute to the People’s Princess with Diana’s sister giving a reading during the ceremony and Meghan’s bouquet were filled with the late royal’s favourite flowers forget-me-knots.

Meghan, 36, decided to shine focus on the ring, keeping her wrists bare.

Other than Diana’s and her wedding ring, the former actress was very minimal with her jewelry choices adding a pair of drop diamond earrings.

Kensington Palace released a statement about Meghan’s second look.

“The Bride’s evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue.”

Meanwhile, the dashing groom looked so Hollywood!
