Meghan’s lack of engagement and wedding jewelry may simply be down to the style of each look and a desire to keep her accessories to a minimum, or it could be that the Duchess left them at home for safekeeping. She did, however, open up about her relationship with Harry and even made a reveal about the couple’s wedding day in 2018.
