How Meghan Markles mum Doria paid tribute to Archie and Lilibet with necklace

Meghan Marke's mum, Doria Ragland, made a very sweet tribute to her grandchildren as she stepped out in New York City on Tuesday night.

The yoga teacher joined her daughter and her son-in-law, Prince Harry, as they attended the Ms. Foundation Women of Vision Awards at Ziegfeld Ballroom on 16 May.

For the occasion, she wore a fitted Armani shift dress complete with billowing sheer sleeves and a sophisticated deep-V neckline.

She paired the chic ensemble with Tom Ford heels and a leather clutch bag in ebony leather.

However, in addition to her glam outfit, she added a sentimental touch with her jewellery.

The 66 year old sported a dainty circular pendant engraved with Harry and Meghan's children's names, Archie and Lilibet, while the chain featured a small Lapis Lazuli gemstone – the traditional birthstone of September – the month of Doria's birthday.

Doria's necklace appears to be the Merci Maman personalised birthstone chain necklace, which retails for £99.00. The brand specialises in personalised jewellery and offers complimentary bespoke engraving on their signature styles.

It is one of Kate Middleton's favourites, and was made famous when the Princess of Wales wore their famously re-named The Duchess Necklace' to celebrate the birth of Prince George, in an homage to her former title, the Duchess of Cambridge.

After leaving the glamorous awards bash, Harry, Meghan and Doria were followed by paparazzi as they attempted to make their way to a private residence.

In a statement released on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said: “Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Ms Ragland were involved in a near catastrophic car chase at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi."

They added: “This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.

“While being a public figure comes with a level of interest from the public, it should never come at the cost of anyone’s safety. Dissemination of these images, given the ways in which they were obtained, encourages a highly intrusive practice that is dangerous to all involved.”

But the couple's account of what happened in New York has been questioned after others involved spoke out about the incident.

New York police officials have said that they do not believed the chase was "near catastrophic" but did acknowledge it was "a bit of a chaotic scene" in a chat with US broadcaster NBC.

Meanwhile, Sukhcharn Singh, the taxi driver who picked up Meghan, Harry, Doria and a security guard, told the BBC that claims about the paparazzi chasing them may have been exaggerated as they were not “aggressive”.
