Since becoming a royal, it's no secret that Meghan Markle's outfit choices are the topic of much conversation.
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan quit as senior members of the British Royal Family earlier this year and royal reporters, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, authors of new biography Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, believe Meghan helped Harry to "go against the norm".
The Duchess of Cambridge once admitted to struggling to find a gift for The Queen ahead of their first Christmas together at Sandringham - and we can imagine Meghan Markle experienced the same difficulties as she searched for the ideal birthday gift for her future sister-in-law back in 2018.

While the tabloids were persistent in giving off the view that Meghan and Kate had been at "war with each other", Scobie and Durand suggest otherwise and claim the two just had "some awkward moments" in their distant friendship.
According to the authors, Meghan was left "frustrated" and "emotional" by the claim. "While she knew the aide had good intentions, the surreal experience of having someone from her boyfriend's office tell her what kind of jewelry to wear or not to smile at a photographer was too much".
A friend of Meghan was quoted in the book as saying: "He definitely didn't hide the fact that he was keen".
"I remember her being very focused on her acting career and her role as a 'briefcase beauty, ' as we were called, was just a stepping stone in her career", she told the Gold Coast Bulletin via DailyMail. "They make out like I'm to blame for these pictures, that it looks like I'm encouraging them, that even me acknowledging the cameras may not be sending the right message".
Meghan subsequently wore a similar necklace to the one in question at Wimbledon past year.
