The Duchess of Sussex has been called out recently for not wearing her engagement ring

Meghan Markle has made an appearance wearing the late Princess Diana's Cartier watch, just after reports that Prince William is "disturbed" about the duchess's missing engagement ring.

The Duchess of Sussex wore the watch for a new video with the Fisher House Foundation, just weeks after the Invictus Games where she did not wear her engagement ring that contains jewels from the late princess's jewellery collection.

During the 2023 Games which were held in Dusseldorf, Germany, Meghan did not wear her engagement ring.

Prince William is said to be concerned about Meghan's missing ring, as it contains jewels that belonged to his late mother.

A source said: “It's safe to say it has set off alarm bells at the Palace. [Prince William's] putting the word out through mutual friends that he wants to know what's going on.

"Not knowing where they are is disturbing for William," they told New Idea magazine.

Recently, a setting came loose on the ring meaning it had to be serviced, according to royal insiders who spoke to People Magazine.

This could explain why Meghan did not wear it in Dusseldorf for the Invictus Games.

The duchess was wearing her wedding ring and an eternity band designed by Lorraine Schwartz that Harry gifted her in 2019.

In a video released on Monday evening, the mother of two could be seen wearing another jewellery item that belonged to Princess Diana - her gold Cartier watch.

The Cartier Tank Louis Cartier watch is thought to have been a present from Princess Diana's father, the 8th Earl Spencer, and was initially worn by the princess in the 1980s.

But it wasn't until she got divorced in 1996 that she started wearing her gold Cartier watch instead of the Patek Philippe that King Charles had given her.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex now sports Diana's watch after Prince Harry received it as an inheritance.

The Duke of Sussex gave Meghan a three-stone diamond ring when he proposed to her in 2017 at Kensington Palace.

The band included two smaller stones from Princess Diana's jewellery collection and a larger stone that was ethically sourced from Botswana.

The initial ring was on a yellow-gold band.

Harry said in their engagement interview in 2017: "The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's [Meghan's] favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together."

In 2019, following the birth of their eldest child, Prince Archie, Meghan's engagement ring was reset on a thin micro-pavé band.
