Meghan Markle may have gotten Princess Diana's favourite gold watch from Prince William

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stunned the world after their latest official photograph made its way to the internet sending their fans into meltdown. 

While the monochromatic portrait symbolises pure elegance, it may have  featured a subtle nod to Harry's late mother Princess Diana, by Meghan.

As suggested in reports, Meghan appears to have donned Diana's gold Cartier Tank Française watch, an elegant timepiece that the late Princess of Wales was seen sporting at multiple events.

Meghan has been vocal about her love for the watch and even revealed how she bought a two-toned version of it herself back when she wasn't a royal.

"I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season—which, at the time, felt like such a milestone—I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version," she said.

"I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M.' and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them," Meghan added.

In her recent virtual summit for Fortune magazine, Meghan appeared to have worn the same watch  leading royal watchers to speculate that it may have been Diana's.

Meghan has donned Diana's timeless jewels, including her  butterfly earrings, gold bracelet and aquamarine cocktail ring in the past too.
