BEING married to royalty has its perks – and a jaw-dropping jewellery collection is certainly one of them if you are Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, has built up an impressive supply of diamond rings, necklaces and bracelets since tying the knot with Prince Harry three years ago.

Mum-of-two, Meghan, who is now based in California with Harry and their two kids, Archie and Lilibet, has worn a staggering £14,715 worth of new jewellery this year, according to the Mail. 

And this is in addition to her already whopping collection that she already had, which include her £271,000 engagement ring and heirlooms from Princess Diana.

Designed by Prince Harry himself, the Duchess of Sussex's stunning sparkler features two of the late Princess Diana's diamonds, with a main stone from Botswana.

Meghan later blinged it up to include a diamond-studded micro-pave gold band.

During the couple's engagement interview in 2017, Prince Harry revealed he had specifically chosen a gold band for Meghan's original ring based on her jewellery collection.

He said: "The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's her favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure she's with us on this crazy journey together."
