The bandeau and the brooch were passed down by Queen Mary to The Queen in 1953. It hasn't been worn since. 06 of 10 The Other Accessories John Sibley - WPA/Getty Images Meghan added an extra hit of sparkle to her look via diamond earrings and a coordinating bracelet made by Cartier. But most likely her most meaningful piece of jewelry is her engagement ring. The two stones are from Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana's personal collection, while the other stone is from Botswana, a country that is close to his heart. Harry has often spoken about his love of Africa, and says it’s the place he feels more like himself than anywhere else in the world. He shared his love of Africa with Meghan this past summer on a trip to the continent, which included a visit to Botswana. 07 of 10 The Hair Moment Brian Lawless - WPA Pool/Getty The bride wore a romantic updo by celebrity stylist Serge Normant, placing the tiara further back on her head and securing it to her 16-foot veil. 08 of 10 The Sideview Gareth Fuller - WPA/Getty Images Because you can never look at too many photos of a princess wearing a tiara. 09 of 10 A Note About the Dress Gareth Fuller - WPA/Getty Images The bride's custom wedding dress was designed by British designer, Clare Waight Keller, the Artistic Director at French fashion house Givenchy. According to Kensington Palace, Meghan "chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour." The gown featured a timeless silhouette, boatneck and three-quarter length sleeves to "add a note of refined modernity." 10 of 10 The Happy Couple Leon Neal/Getty Prince Harry might put the sparkle in Meghan's eye, but we're not sure anything will shine as bright as that 10-carat stone at the center of the headpiece.
