Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially at Frogmore House for their dinner reception hosted by Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, and Meghan found a way to incorporate both an ode to Diana and the tradition of a “something blue” into her look by incorporating a breathtaking aquamarine cocktail ring from her late mother-in-law’s collection.

Meghan exited Windsor Castle arm in arm with her husband, Prince Harry, in a simple yet stunning Stella McCartney modified fit-to-flare style. She paired the mock-necked gown with an athletic neckline with a stunning pair of diamond earrings, and one of Diana’s breathtaking rings in a vibrant shade of pale blue.

Markle also drove home her somethings blue with a pair of custom Aquazzura shoes, which have pastel blue painted on their soles. Many are assuming that this ring was not “borrowed,” but that Harry gave it to his bride as a wedding day gift. Princess Diana had left her jewelry to the wives of her sons in her will, and given that Meghan wasn’t officially a married woman at today’s ceremony, she opted to wait to wear a piece of Diana’s until she and Harry were officially married.

While the Duchess of Cambridge honored Diana during her engagement with William, given that the ring he proposed with was an heirloom of hers, Meghan and Harry have continuously involved his late mother in their milestones. Harry proposed with a ringwhich included two stones from a brooch of Diana’s, and it appeared that Meghan nodded to Diana’s legendary train and veil when she arrived to St. George’s Chapel this afternoon.

For her evening look, Meghan didn’t forget to embrace the memory of her husband’s much-missed mother, opting to break royal tradition subtly with a sexier silhouette (a walk-the-line style move Diana was known for), and styled the look with an effortless updo, and the Princess’ jaw-dropping cocktail ring.
