Bling fit for a prince.
During the chat, the Duke of Sussex talked about his nicknames, his late mother and his military service – and also delved into the explosive fight with brother Prince William he wrote about in his book.
“There is a lot of talk about the physical fight that the two of you had, where he pushed you down in the kitchen and broke the dog bowl when you fell on it,” Colbert said, before asking, “It says he broke your necklace. Which necklace was this that he broke?”
“This one, which is now fixed,” Harry replied, showing off a trio of charms affixed to a black cord around his neck.
“I’ve got my kid’s heartbeats, which my wife gave me,” he explained of a pair of silver pendants engraved with son Archie and daughter Lilibet’s cardiograms.
“And I friend of mine in Botswana made this for me, which has got tiger’s eye on it,” he continued of a third, round charm featuring the golden gemstone, which is said to protect its wearer and promote self-confidence and inner strength.
It makes sense that Markle would’ve gifted her husband the heartbeat pendants, as she’s a fan of sentimental sparkle herself. The duchess has been spotted wearing gold zodiac chains with Virgo and Taurus charms in honor of Harry and Archie, respectively, as well as diamond constellation necklaces for both Archie and Lili.
Like her spouse, she’s also a fan of meaningful gemstones; in addition to wearing Archie’s and Harry’s birthstones on the diamond eternity band she stacks with her engagement ring, Markle also owns a lapis lazuli pendant, believed to promote wisdom, intuition and truth.
In his memoir, Harry claims his older brother called Markle, “difficult,” “rude” and “abrasive” during a 2019 argument at Nottingham Cottage, after which the Prince of Wales allegedly attacked him.
His necklace may have since been mended, but the siblings’ relationship seems to still be broken.
