The sentimental piece of jewellery Duchess Meghan is saving for her daughter

The sentimental piece of jewellery Duchess Meghan is saving for her daughter

While Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's wedding was only a few months ago, it seems the former actress has always dreamt of having children. In an interview with Hello! Magazine from 2015, Meghan revealed an item that she plans on using as a family heirloom.

To celebrate the success of her show Suits, the Duchess splurged on a Cartier watch which would have pushed her back close to $10,000. But she plans on keeping it around for a very long time.

“I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch,” she said. “When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version.”

Meghan even had the classic watch engraved with a personal message: ‘To M.M. From M.M.’ 

“I plan to give it to my daughter one day,” Meghan explained. “That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.”

Following their royal wedding in May, the world now awaits potential baby news from the couple, but don’t hold your breath, as you may be waiting a while.

While the royal couple have no intentions of starting a family soon, Prince Harry did add that they will “hopefully start a family in the near future".

Though, whenever the two decide to have children of their own, there will be a difference between their child and Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – as Harry and Meghan’s children will have different surnames.

With all of Queen Elizabeth’s and Prince Philip’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren sharing the historical surname Mountbatten-Windsor, there is a high chance that Harry and Meghan’s children will carry the surname Sussex.

With William and Harry being known throughout their schooling as William and Harry Wales due to their father being Prince Charles of Wales, it is thought that Harry and Meghan’s children will adopt their parents’ titles.

Likewise, Prince William and Kate’s family are known as the Cambridge’s due to the couple being the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It is said that this tradition allows the royal children to adapt to their environment more easily.
