Prince Harry recently gifted Meghan a necklace, which features a modest diamond cross on a gold chain.

Speaking to GB News, James Harris, Regional Sales Manager of Austen & Blake, described the sentimental significance of the necklace.

Harris mentioned that the Duchess sported the several jewelry pieces during her three-day Nigeria visit. And one of these exquisite pieces, included a beautiful cross-pendant with glittering diamonds and a gold chain.

“The cross pendant, while beautiful in its craftsmanship, could have carried a deeper significance,” he said, adding that the cross pendant signifies protection, hope, and faith.

The pendant serves as a reminder of an individual's spiritual beliefs and resilience and strength in the face of hardship.

In Meghan’s case, the stylist said that the cross can be referred to as a symbol of unity and peace, highlighting her devotion to humanitarian efforts and her commitment to promoting understanding across cultures.

After stepping down as working royals in 2020, Meghan and Harry moved to the US with Prince Archie and later the duo welcomed their second child Princess Lilibet.

The powerful "symbol of unity and peace" might have been interpreted as an implicit message from the Duchess to the Royal Family, with whom she doesn't maintain a good bond.

"It serves as a testament to her values and the causes she holds dear, making it much more than just an accessory."
