Meghan Markle sported a special accessory during her surprise appearance this week!

Prince Harry shocked thousands of students and teachers gathered for WE Day on Wednesday when he unexpectedly announced he was “going to try to drag my wife on stage!” to cheers from the crowd.

The royal mom-to-be, 37, joined her husband on stage, standing close as they wrapped their arms around each other. For the occasion, Meghan wore her black Rag & Bone maternity jeans with a matching, bump-hugging top. She topped the look off with a navy blazer and styled her hair in loose waves.

Eagle-eyed royal fans also noticed that the Duchess of Sussex opted to wear gold necklace she first sported as she left her New York City baby shower to head back to London. The piece, by Jennifer Meyer, reads either or "Mummy," the popular English nickname for kids to call their mother.

Lucy Brightman-Stokes, 12, and Sinead Hubbard, 14, were among students chosen to meet Harry and Meghan privately backstage at WE Day.

“It was nerve-wracking, but really exciting. We have them a teddy bear for the baby and a card from our school and they said it was lovely,” Hubbard said

Brightman-Stokes added: “Harry said he was happy it was a soft teddy, not a hard one, and said, ‘That will go in the crib.’ ”
