MEGHAN MARKLE UPGRADES HER ENGAGEMENT RING
Meghan Markle upgraded her engagement ring and it almost went unnoticed! On May 8th, The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry introduced their baby boy Archie to the world and no one noticed her brand new sparkly engagement ring. The new ring was also on display during her Trooping the Colour appearance on June 8th.
According to People, the original trio of diamonds appear to have been reset in a thin micro pave band. The original — which was designed by Prince Harry himself, was a solid yellow gold band.
The ring has sentimental value to Harry. The two stones are from his late mother Princess Diana's personal collection and the other stone is from Botswana, a country that is close to his and Meghan's hearts. The ring was crafted by British jewelers Cleave and Company, the jewelers to Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
JAMES MIDDLETON OPENS UP ABOUT HIS 'CRIPPLING' DEPRESSION
In other news, Kate Middleton's brother James Middleton has opened up about suffering from depression and anxiety. Middleton says his depression started when he was thrown in the public eye after his sister started dating Prince William in 2003.
He told Tatler Magazine, “Suddenly, and very publicly, I was being judged about whether I was a success or a failure. That does put pressure on you because in my mind I’m doing this irrespective of my family and events that have happened.”
Meanwhile, Middleton said that he is open to talking about his mental health struggles, he is not open when it comes to talking about his family and the royals. He explained, “I lead a separate life to them. If there’s an interest in me, great. If there’s an interest in me because of them, that’s different."
James said that his healing came when he stepped back from his marshmellow business Boomf, started therapy sessions and taking soul searching breaks at Glen Affric. He told the magazine, “I am happy – I feel like James Middleton again. I feel like I was when I was 13, excited about life. I feel like myself again and I couldn’t ask for more."
