Meghan Markle's "missing" engagement ring could be linked to Princess Lilibet, a jewellery expert has claimed.

Since May of this year, the Duchess of Sussex has not been seen wearing her engagement ring which Prince Harry gave to her in 2017.

Danielle Rogers-Clark, a fashion expert who runs the blog Give Good Dress, spoke exclusively to GB News to explain why the mother-of-two has not worn her engagement ring in recent months.

She said: "The Duchess of Sussex has recently been spotted without her engagement ring at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf in August this year.

"Rumours have circulated about problems in the marriage and the rift between the Sussexes, the King, and the Prince and Princess Of Wales as the possible reasons behind Meghan choosing not to wear such a prominent piece at such an important occasion.

"My thoughts behind this is that the ring could be in for another upgrade, perhaps they are adding in Princess Lilibet’s birthstone.

"We may well see the gorgeous ring re-appear in public soon sporting a pearl addition to the diamond band."

As well as the Invictus Games, Meghan did not wear her engagement ring during her trip to World Mental Health Day in New York or for the recent Variety gala in Los Angeles.

Rogers-Clark claimed that the Duchess of Sussex could also be avoiding wearing her engagement ring for practical reasons.

She added: "Another theory I have is that the ring is huge, it could be that it isn’t overly comfortable or practical for Meghan to wear this day to day, especially with small children.

"She might even be worried about wearing such a legacy piece for fear of losing it or having it stolen."

Meghan's engagement ring is a beautiful three-stone ring, featuring diamonds from Princess Diana’s jewellery collection.

Over 18 months after her engagement, the 42-year-old made some alterations to the ring, replacing the yellow gold band with a delicate diamond-studded band instead.

Prince Harry designed the ring with a centre cushion cut diamond sourced from Botswana, a place where he solidified his relationship with Meghan.

The couple tied the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle six months after their engagement.
