Meghan Markle began to make headlines after the Duchess of Sussex was spotted on Instagram without her wedding ring. Even though Meghan and Prince Harry have been at the center of separation rumors, there is a simple explanation for her ringless hand.

Meghan was all smiles with her friends, but fans noticed she had no wedding ring.

Meghan's diamond accessory has gone through several changes over the years. Harry upgraded Meghan's marriage token in 2019 for a micro-pavé band.

During their engagement announcement, Harry explained the thought process behind the unique piece.

"The ring is yellow gold, because that’s [her] favorite, and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana, and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this — on this crazy journey together," the Duke of Sussex said during the BBC appearance.

Meghan's unique wedding band includes jewelry from Princess Diana's collection.

Meghan also gushed over the design.

"Everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Princess Diana’s stones] and obviously not being able to meet his mom, it’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us," the Duchess of Sussex said at the time.

Meghan's original ring included a simple gold band.

Years after the lovebirds celebrated their betrothment, the duo moved countries and ditched their royal responsibilities. Since relocating to Montecito, there have been whispers of the Sussexes struggling to sustain their romance.

The Royal Observer previously reported the Sussexes were annoyed by the accusations.

"The Sussexes' marriage is fine," the source told an outlet. "The reports of a separation stemmed from Harry making a solo trip to Africa, but that’s a work trip. It’s not a sign of trouble in their marriage."

"Even if there were struggles, Harry would want to make it work," the insider explained. "He has invested so much time into their relationship and adores his family. Coming from a broken home himself, that’s extra motivation for him to keep his family together."

Sources spoke to Page Six.
