Meghan Markle's "growth" in her marriage to Prince Harry was shown with a recent change, a style expert has claimed.

The Duchess of Sussex did not wear her engagement ring for several months during 2023, sparking many rumours the jewel was "missing".

Prince Harry proposed to Meghan in 2017 with a diamond engagement ring, featuring a main stone sourced from Botswana and two diamonds from the late Princess Diana's collection.

After not wearing the ring for several months, Meghan finally donned the jewel in January 2024 at the "Bob Marley: One Love" film premiere.

She later wore the ring for her trip to Canada with Prince Harry and for a weekend in Florida.

The ring appeared to have been altered, with the diamonds looking larger during the Duchess of Sussex's recent appearances.

Tony French, the Regional Sales Manager at Austen & Blake, spoke exclusively to GB News to explain what the alterations could represent.

He said: "Engagement rings evolve and so do relationships, it’s a testament to a couple’s unique story.

"This could reflect growth, milestones and the enduring commitment shared between partners."

As well as the Invictus Games in 2023, Meghan did not wear her engagement ring during her trip to World Mental Health Day in New York or at the Variety gala in Los Angeles.

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.

They now live in California with their two children, Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two.
