Meghan Markle Paid a Sweet Tribute to Prince Harry's Father With Her Stunning Jewellery
Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the 2018 British Fashion Awards, and boy did she dress to impress. The Duchess of Sussex presented her wedding dress designer, Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller, with the British Designer of the Year Award.
For the occasion, she chose a gorgeous one-shoulder velvet Givenchy gown and gold Tamara Mellon heels. What many people didn't realise is that her jewellery actually had a very special story behind it. She wore three bangles and a pair of earrings by the London-based brand Pippa Small.
The pieces were handmade by Kabul artisans that were trained by the non-profit NGO, Turquoise Mountain Foundation, which was actually founded by her father-in-law Prince Charles and the former president of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai. The NGO helps "preserve and regenerate historic areas and communities with a rich cultural heritage and to revive traditional crafts, to create jobs, skills and a renewed sense of pride."
