Prince Harry and Meghan Markle posed for pictures outside Kensington Palace this afternoon, after officially announcing their engagement this morning.
The actress showed off her sizeable sparkler, which the Prince designed himself with two diamonds belonging to his late mother, Princess Diana.
The two outside stones are diamonds from the personal collection of Diana, and at the centre is a diamond from Botswana – which is a country close to Harry’s heart, as he has visited the country many times since he was a child.
Voltaire Diamonds have estimated the ring to be valued upwards of €90,000, even reaching the €180,000 mark if the centre stone is a D colour with flawless clarity.

Set in yellow gold, the ring was reportedly crafted by Cleave and Company, Court Jewellers and Medallists to Her Majesty The Queen.
Howeber, considering that the two incredible side stones come from the late Princess of Wales’ own collection, the ring is priceless!
The newly engaged pair will appear in a television interview tonight by the BBC’s Mishal Husain.
