Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged, and Markle's ring, designed by Harry himself, features two diamonds from his mother Princess Diana’s personal collection. 

The couple held a press conference in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace on Monday afternoon to talk about their engagement and show the ring, which has a large center diamond from Botswana, where the couple had traveled over the summer, with two smaller diamonds on the sides that belonged to Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana.

“The little diamonds on either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together,” Harry said in a BBC interview.

Markle called the ring “beautiful and “incredible.”

“I think everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Princess Diana’s stones] and obviously not being able to meet his mom, it’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us,” Markle said during the interview. “It’s incredibly special to be able to have this [ring] which sort of links where [Harry comes] from and Botswana, which is important to us. It’s perfect.”

The ring was made by the queen’s jeweler, Cleave and Company, and the band is yellow gold, Markle’s favorite, ABC News said.

When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton in 2010, he gave her a ring that had belonged to his mother.

Markle wore a white coat by Line the Label for the engagement announcement. The designer's website reportedly crashed and the coat quickly sold out, showing Markle's fashion choices will likely be as closely watched and desired as Middleton's.

Markle and Prince Harry plan to marry in Spring 2018.
