Being one of the biggest fashion influencers at the moment, Meghan has no shortage of incredible jewelry from all around the world. And Prince Harry isn’t one to shy away from showering his wife with presents. However, even with a huge collection, the Duchess of Sussex went for a very unusual necklace during the third day of her Royal Tour in Australia-and the reason behind it is so heartwarming.
The necklace she wore was a homemade gift from a schoolboy called Gavin, who could make it to school the day she was visiting due to not feeling very well.
Despite having a bad cough he managed to make the necklace using black ribbon and painted the decorations gold.
He left an adorable sign which read “I made you a necklace”, which Meghan luckily saw and went straight to get it. She put it immediately and wore it with her blue dress in the upcoming engagement when she met with other well-wishers alongside her husband Prince Harry.
However, she had to take it off for her next engagement.
Meghan and Harry’s arrival was delayed a bit as there was a truck crash on the route to their first engagement, but that didn’t stop them from spending time chatting and meeting with fans. Meghan opted for a fitted navy blue dress by Australian brand Dion Lee which shows the faintest hint of a bump. She was also wearing a trench coat by Martin Grant. Hubby Harry was in matching navy blue, opting for a smart suit and white shirt.

When they visited the city Meghan and Harry had the chance of meeting with members of the public in a walkabout at Government House Drive and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Fans had gathered in crowds to greet them, and many students skipped school just to get a glimpse of the royal couple. Then Meghan and Harry attended a reception hosted by the Governor of Victoria-along with representatives of the This Girl Can movement.
