Meghan Markle made sure her husband Prince Harry’s mom, the late Princess Diana, was with them in spirit when they stepped out in New York City together. Harry and the former “Suits” actor were spotted on September 25 at the New York branch of the Global Citizen Festival where she held a poignant bag and rocked a very precious watch.
According to Daily Mail, Meghan opted for Christian Dior’s black Lady D-Lite bag. As for what that initial stands for? You guessed it! Diana. The bag used to be known as the Chouchou, but its name was changed in 1996 to celebrate Princess Diana (who was formerly known as Lady Diana Spencer) carrying it. It’s believed it was given to her as a gift from the former First Lady of France, Bernadette Chirac, when Diana visited Paris in 1995. Those wanting to get their hands on the bag will have to pay a royal price tag for it though, as Dior lists it for $4,900.
As for Meghan’s watch, it’s thought that was Diana’s Cartier Tank Française. It’s believed to be the exact one that belonged to Diana, so it’s going to set anyone looking to get their hands on it even more. Though it’s not likely Prince Harry or Meghan will want to part with it, Founder of Prestige Pawnbrokers, James Constantinou, estimated to Express the jewelry could be worth a whopping $586,000.
Fit for a princess, indeed.
