Meghan Markle Already Has A Special Gift To Hand Down To Her Daughter

It includes a sweet message

Meghan Markle isn’t usually one for classic pieces of jewelleryshe tends to favour more bohemian designs, like this $50 ring and this Australian labelbut there’s one piece she’s made an exception for.

We’re not talking about her exquisite engagement ring, but something she bought herself, long before she met Prince Harry: a Cartier ‘Tank Française’ timepiece.

According to 9Honey, the future princess treated herself to the expensive design (the yellow gold version retails for around $7,800 in Australia) as a reward for the success of Suits

“When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third seasonwhich, at the time, felt like such a milestoneI totally splurged,” Markle told Hello.

“I had it engraved on the back, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’ and I plan to give it to my daughter one day,” she added.
