Prince Harry designed it himself.
After the news broke about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement, the next big question on everyone’s mind was, “What does the ring look like?” Now we have our first glimpse at the ring—and we think it’s pretty perfect.
The newly-engaged couple participated in a photocall at Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden. Last summer, the site was home to the White Garden, a temporary floral display created to honor the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. During the photocall, Markle showed off the ring, which Prince Harry personally designed himself.
The ring is a three-stone sparkler and has a lot of personal significance: The center stone is from Botswana (where the couple celebrated Markle’s birthday in August), while the other two stones are from Princess Diana’s personal collection. Meghan's future sister-in-law Kate Middleton also has an engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana, so it’s only fitting that Markle’s ring also includes a touching nod to Prince Harry’s late mother.

The couple is scheduled to do an interview with the BBC on Monday evening, but they did give a few comments to reporters during the photocall. Prince Harry told reporters that he knew Markle was "the one" the very first time they met. And though the pair was coy about the proposal details, Prince Harry said, “Of course it was,” when asked if it was romantic—and Markle agreed saying, “Very.”
The royal wedding will take place in Spring 2018.
