• Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were in New York for a UN event
  • Meghan wore a gold Cartier watch
  • It's a memento of Lady Diana

Duchess Meghan (40) and Prince Harry (37) are back in New York. There, Harry gave a speech at the UN on Nelson Mandela Day. For the occasion, Duchess Meghan chose a piece of jewelry that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Lady Diana.

Duchess Meghan wore a gold Cartier watch as a tribute to Diana

Meghan inherited a gold Cartier watch – worth around £23,000 – from Diana and paired it with a black outfit in New York. The Duchess looked rather reserved as her husband gave a great speech about Mandela, his passion for Africa, and also his beloved mother.

She combined her black outfit with matching stilettos, and she wore her hair in a ponytail. Wearing the watch is a touching gesture from the Duchess — after all, it was Africa that was so important to Lady Diana.
