The Duchess of Sussex has announced a new podcast deal with Lemonada yesterday

Meghan Markle has been pictured wearing Diana’s Cartier watch in a stunning new portrait of the duchess released to mark her landmark deal.

The Duchess of Sussex released the image on her new website in celebration of her podcast collaboration with Lemonada.

Yesterday, Meghan announced that she was continuing her “love of podcasting” with a new series of “Archetypes,” available to stream from Spring.

In a portrait shot by Meghan’s friend and personal photographer, Misan Harriman, the duchess folds her arms and leans up against a wall showing off the Cartier watch and a gold bracelet.

The duchess has worn her £5,000 Cartier Love Bracelet many times in the past, which is thought to be a gift from Harry.

Diana was seen many times wearing the gold Cartier watch including on a visit to London’s Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Temple in 1997.

For the portrait, the duchess opted for one of her signature looks with a £310 high neck, sleeveless grey dress.

Meghan wore her hair down behind her back with a few strands of wavy pieces framing her face.

Her makeup was kept simple with rose-tinted cheeks, pink lips and dark mascara and eyeliner to make her deep brown eyes stand out.

Meghan is often pictured in halter neck outfits creating a chic and elegant look.

Meghan used this look for her second wedding dress where she wore a white halter neck gown by Stella McCartney causing a 185 per cent increase in online searches for similar styles.

The duchess debuted the Cartier watch in May 2018 when she arrived at the Cliveden House Hotel the night before her wedding night to Prince Harry.

The watch is thought to be a gift from Harry, although it was speculated at the time it may have been a wedding gift from her father-in-law, Charles.

Meghan then wore the accessory just days after her wedding when she stepped out with King Charles and Queen Camilla for her first engagement as a member of the Royal Family.

In Meghan’s podcast announcement, she says: “I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting.

“Being able to support a female-founded company with a roster of thought-provoking and highly entertaining podcasts is a fantastic way to kick off 2024.”
