Meghan Markle wears £280k of jewels for TIME 1OO front cover with Prince Harry

The Duchess of Sussex has flashed some bling in a glamorous photo shoot that has seen her and husband Prince Harry plastered across the front page of one of the biggest magazines on the planet.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appear on the cover of Time magazine this month, and while the couple have said they’re keen to “voice to the voiceless” and “run toward the struggle” to support the underprivileged, Meghan rocked an impressive array of jewellery in the snap.

In fact, her chosen accessories are believed to be worth at least £280,000.

Among the valuable items on show is a Cartier Tank watch that’s technically worth £17,000 – but given that it once belonged to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana its true value is probably beyond price.

Meghan match that with her £252,890 engagement ring, which was custom-designed by Prince Harry himself and made by court jewellers Cleave and Company. that, too, features stones from Princess Diana's personal collection.

Balancing Meghan’s watch is a £5,000 Cartier Love bracelet – which is believed to have been given to her by Prince Harry in the early days of their romance.

Meghan accessorised her look with two Duet Pinky Rings from Shiffon which are a rather more affordable £400.

Shiffon focuses on sustainable jewellery, using only recycled metals, ethically-sourced stones, and recyclable packaging in line with the couple's eco-friendly philosophy.

Not to be left out, Harry sports a tiger's eye gemstone bracelet

The photo was part of a shoot to celebrate the Duke and Duchess’s additions to Time’s list of the world's top 100 global influencers.

The major feature inside the imagine was introduced with an essay from chef José Andrés who said that "in a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know”.

Andrés added: "They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production.

"Hand in hand with non-profit partners, they take risks to help communities in need—offering mental-health support to Black women and girls in the U.S., and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean."

His opinion of the couple wasn’t shared by everyone, though, with dozens taking to social media to criticise the weirdly -retouched cover which, in the words of Twitter user Gráinne Maguire, made Harry look like he’s “her hairdresser and he’s looking into the mirror explaining what he did to her layers”.
