Meghan Markle was spotted making a respectful nod to Princess Diana as she appeared at an awards ceremony this week.

The Duchess was joined by Prince Harry on the red carpet for the Salute to Freedom Gala in New York on Wednesday, and perceptive royal fans noticed something on her wrist.

As she stepped out in front of the cameras, Diana's £17,000 bracelet could be seen sparkling on her left wrist.

She completed her look with a striking red Carolina Herrera dress and Birks earrings.

The bracelet was gifted to Meghan by Harry at the start of their relationship, along with Diana's iconic gold Cartier Tank watch.

She also donned the accessory during the couple's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

At the time a source close the the Sussexes told Today: "They wanted to wear the bracelet to have [Harry’s] mother there with them during the interview."

Meghan is thought to be extremely fond of her pieces from Diana's collection, particularly the watch after she splashed out on her own two-tone version of it in 2015, to celebrate her TV show Suits being renewed for a third season.

She told Hello Magazine: "I've always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch.

"When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version.

"I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M.' and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That's what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them."

In 2018 Meghan also famously sported the late Princess' butterfly earrings as she and Harry toured Australia.

She was recently spotted showcasing almost her entire collection, including her £271,000 engagement ring, as she read from her children's book The Bench on YouTube.
