How Meghan Markle's Wedding Attire Paid Tribute to Princess Diana

The new Duchess of Sussex's something blue honored her late mother-in-law. 

After stealing our breath with her simple yet stunning Givenchy bridal gown, newlywed Meghan Markle appeared in another ensemble as she headed to her wedding reception alongside hubby Prince Harry. Not only did the new Duchess of Sussex switch into a sexy Stella McCartney gown for the evening, but she also sported a gigantic aqua ring on her right hand that (which was impossible to miss). 

As we all know, it is tradition for a bride to wear something blue and something borrowed on her big day, but this was far from your average brooch or earrings. The jewel that appeared on Meghan's right ring finger is an emerald-cut aquamarine ring, which Princess Diana wore during several public outings in the ‘90s. *Grabs tissue box.*

Here is an even closer look at the royal jewel, as seen on Princess Diana during a benefit dinner in Austrailia in 1996. 

A spokesperson from Kensington Palace confirmed to BuzzFeed that Diana's ring was indeed the exact ring that Markle wore during the royal wedding reception. The beautiful piece of jewelry was one of many sweet ways in which the newlywed couple chose to honor the late Princess Diana. During the wedding ceremony, Meghan also carried a bouquet with Diana's favorite flowers, forget-me-nots. And we can't forget about Markle's engagement ring, which was also reportedly created with diamonds that belonged to Prince Harry's mom. 

We have a feeling that we'll spot plenty more Princess Diana touches in Markle's chic wardrobe.
