When the Duchess of Sussex got together with her friends Kadi Lee and Cleo Wade this week to celebrate her belated birthday, she appeared positively glowing.

The wife of Prince Harry was beaming as she hugged her girlfriends in a recent photo posted by Meghan’s friend Kadi, a devoted member of Meghan’s glam squad and one-third of the team responsible for her glowy look at the Ms. Foundation Gala in New York back in May.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked casual in a black tank top, a delicate gold pendant necklace, and an easy updo, but royal fans noticed something different about her appearance.

The $200,000 diamond engagement ring that Meghan, 42, usually wears above her gold wedding band and diamond eternity ring, appeared to have been taken off.

In the comments section of a social media post that provided a closer look at the Duchess’ ring finger, royal fans were divided. One fan remarked, “I wonder what happened to the engagement ring,” while another stated, “Not everyone wears their engagement rings every day. I’m sure I don’t.

She looks fantastic. A third supporter chimed in, “Perhaps her ring was sent for resizing. Even my wedding band isn’t something I regularly wear! It is not our concern.

The Duchess of Sussex has taken off her wedding and engagement rings before while married to Prince Harry.

It was initially thought that the mother-of-two’s decision to remove both rings during her first pregnancy with Prince Archie was due to swelling, but it was later made clear that the royal’s glistening set of rings was receiving an upgrade.

As a gift for their first wedding anniversary, Prince Harry decided to level up his wife’s wedding band at the same time that he ordered her a custom eternity ring.

In the royal biography Finding Freedom, jeweler Lorraine Schwartz stated: “Prince Harry was the loveliest person ever. So thoughtful and romantic.

Harry had the brilliant idea to resize Meghan’s engagement ring and replace the old diamond band with a stunning new one at the same time he bought his gift for their wedding anniversary.
