When Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle in 2017, he gave her a ring that was made with two diamonds from Princess Diana's collection and one from Bostwana. Years later, the red-headed royal, 37, decided to do something so nice for his wife-to-be.

"The ring is obviously 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 crazy journey together," he said at the time.

"On May 19, 2019, Harry also surprised his wife of one year with the gift of a ring that he had created with jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz, a favorite of Meghan's," Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote in their book Finding Freedom. "The conflict-free diamond eternity band paid homage to the family of three with Meghan's, Archie's and Harry's birthstones (peridot, emerald, and sapphire, respectively) on the underside of the ring."

The jeweler told the authors, "Harry wanted to make it special. He's the loveliest person ever. So romantic, so thoughtful."

The two tied the knot in 2018 and one year later, they welcomed son Archie. This past June, Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, welcomed their second child — a daughter named Lilibet.

Ever since the duo moved to California, it seems like they have been adjusting to their new life.

"Well, we moved here during lockdown — exactly when things shut down, so we have just been able to spend a lot of time at home and creating a home, but I think it's just the lifestyle and the weather is pretty great. We are just happy," she gushed to Ellen DeGeneres in late November.

The TV star also shared how Archie is happy to have a sibling around.

"He loves being a big brother. I think everyone tells you — actually someone told H [Prince Harry] and I that you have one kid it's a hobby and two children is parenting, and suddenly we realized, 'Oh, right. Everyone talks about what it's like for the second child, but no one talks about the adjustment for the first child when the second one comes along.' I think they have that moment of, 'This is fun. Oh, this is how it is now.' He is so sweet."
