It’s believed the watch belonged to Diana and is one she was often seen wearing at public events.

After Diana’s death, the watch was handed to Prince William.

It’s thought he gave it to his brother in 2009.

And Meghan wearing it is a move that many fans said sent the perfect message to the royal family.

However, although she’s believed to be wearing Diana’s watch in the video, Meghan actually owns her own Cartier Tank watch.

And she plans to hand it down to her daughter one day.

She previously explained that she bought the watch while working as an actress on Suits.

As a result, she told Hello!: “I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch.

“I had it engraved on the back: ‘To M.M. From M.M’ and I plan to give it to my daughter one day.

“That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.”
