Princess Diana's memory honored by Meghan Markle's touching attention to detail
Meghan Markle paid a sweet tribute to the late Princess Diana by wearing a pair of earrings and a bracelet that belonged to her husband's mother.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed on Australia for their 16-day tour on Monday, October 15, and Meghan's looks quickly drew attention.
As reported by E! News, the 37-year-old looked stunning in an all-white dress that was complemented by the beautiful pieces of jewelry.

The dress was created by Australian designer Karen Gee, but while it was beautiful, the earrings and the bracelet stole the show.
The Duchess wore Diana's gold and diamond butterfly earrings, which the Princess was seen sporting on several occasions, as well as her gold bracelet on her right wrist.

Although it may seem like a small gesture, it proves that Princess Diana has not been forgotten and that Prince Harry fully trusts his wife to wear his mother's jewelry.
The royal couple's first stop was at Admiralty House, the official residence of Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, who represents Queen Elizabeth II on Australian grounds.

A THOUGHTFUL GIFT
There, Harry and Meghan were gifted a stuffed animal kangaroo with a baby joey in its pouch, a symbol of the country's most famous mascot and a reference to the recently announced pregnancy.
Aside from the stuffed animal, they were presented with a pair of baby Uggs, which also hail from Australia. On their tour, the Duke and Duchess are expected to visit several places, including New Zealand and Fiji.

Later that day, they paid a visit to Sydney's Taronga Zoo, where they had the opportunity of interacting with a number of local animals, including a short-legged echidna and a koala.
Harry and Meghan will enjoy their time in Australia after attending Princess Eugenie's wedding to longtime lover Jack Brooksbank, which took place on Friday, October 12.
Although they were able to attend the festivities, including the luncheon hosted by the Queen, they missed the evening gathering in order to prepare for the Australian tour.
