Meghan Markle replica engagement ring is on sale by Buckingham Palace

Meghan mania is still in full force four months after the royal wedding, and now her fans can emulate one of the most iconic parts of the big day.

Buckingham Palace is selling a replica of the Duchess of Sussex’s engagement ring for just £30.

The official royal memorabilia website, The Royal Collection shop, says the crystal ring is ‘inspired’ by the rock given to Meghan, 37, by her now husband Prince Harry, 34, upon their engagement last autumn.

Also on sale is a pair of £25 earrings and a £30 pendant necklace that are based on the ring design.
