It’s been revealed one of Meghan Markle’s most precious possessions is her Cartier Tank watch.
The Duchess of Sussex bought the timepiece after the second season of the TV series Suits, which was engraved with the message, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’
The late Princess Diana was seen on many occasions wearing the Cartier Tank, one of which the Maison shared on their Instagram page. Back in 2015, Markle told Hello! magazine:
“I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.”
Louis Cartier created the Tank watch in 1917. The first prototype was presented as a gift to General Pershing some years before the timepiece was introduced to the market in 1919. Since then, variations of the model have adorned the wrists of First Lady Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama, and the Maison celebrated 100 years of it in 2017.
We’re not surprised Markle wants to keep something so iconic to pass onto the next generation.
