Meghan Markle has made her first appearance since Prince Harry’s controversial memoir Spare came out in January by promoting a wellness coffee on Instagram. The Duchess of Sussex has always made a statement with her fashion, and her recent reappearance back on social media has shown a subtle nod not only to Queen Elizabeth but to her son Archie as well.
Meghan Markle has recently appeared in a promotional video for the coffee brand Clevr Blends, a “wellness coffee” that the Duchess has invested in.
She wore a $3,450.00 (£2,911) emerald necklace in her recent appearance, is part of Logan Hollowell’s Queen collection. The emerald pear-shaped jewel is called a “Baby Queen” which also seems to be a subtle nod to the Duchess’s royal background.
The elegant piece of jewellery features a Zambian emerald pendant encrusted in a 15-diamond carat halo and held together on a 14k delicate gold chain. According to the Logan Hollowell Instagram page, each piece of jewellery from the Queen collection is hand carved individually. They explain: “Each stone is unique, no two the same – just like the Queen that wears it.”
The Duchess has previously been seen wearing the same emerald necklace before on her Archetypes podcast. The poet Amanda Gorman posted a picture of herself with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wearing the necklace where she said they had discussed “the power that women possess as changemakers.”

In the same Clevr Blends video, Meghan Markle was also seen wearing a white Ralph Lauren button-down shirt worth $235 (£119) and a Burberry silk trench coat worth $2,395 (£1,984) while also wearing a pair of dark skinny jeans.
As well as the emerald necklace, the Duchess accessorised in Aquazzura black flats worth $360 (£330) and a Cartier Tank Française Watch which is believed to have been gifted to Meghan Markle by Prince Harry and once beloved to Princess Diana.
In the Instagram video, the founder of the coffee brand Hannah Mendoza is seen welcoming the Duchess while also introducing the lattes. Hannah says the success of the company “blows her mind” and says Meghan was the first investor in the company.
She said: “Three years ago, everything changed. None other than Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, had started drinking our lattes. Not only did she love the product but she was extremely passionate about female founders and sustainable sourcing.”
The coffee founder explained that Meghan Markle sent the lattes to her friends, such as Oprah Winfrey who then later posted herself on social media promoting the coffee and making herself a drink.
She said: “We have not served over six million lattes and we owe so much of that to the power of women uplifting women.”
