The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex made their first appearance in Sydney after announcing they’re expecting a child in spring 2019. Meghan paid tribute to her late mother-in-law by wearing a pair of butterfly earrings and a bracelet previously worn by Princess Diana.

Diana has been seen wearing the earring during a trip to Canada with Prince Charles in May 1986, which is the year after she gave birth to Prince Harry.

The Duchess also wore Diana’s gold bracelet which includes blue stones.

This is not the first time Meghan wears Diana jewelry. She famously paid tribute to her late mother-in-law on her wedding reception and wore an aquamarine cocktail ring that previously belonged to the princess.

Her engagement ring also includes two diamonds from Diana’s personal collection. “It’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us,” Meghan said of the ring.

Kensington Palace said in a statement. People magazine’s royal source says that Meghan has had her 12-week scan and is “feeling well.” Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are “delighted” for the couple, the palace says. As are the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public. The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them on Friday at the wedding in person.”
