Prince Harry is “confused and hurt” by Meghan Markle’s actions while her engagement ring is being repaired, according to a source. Earlier this month, the Duchess of Sussex was seen without her ring in a photo posted on Instagram.
The picture raised concern among some royal fans as Meghan and Harry have spent time apart throughout August.
A source claimed the Duke of Sussex has been left baffled by his wife going out without wearing her engagement ring.
They said: “All Meghan is doing by going out without her engagement ring is fuelling the rumours that she and Harry are having marriage troubles which Harry is absolutely baffled by. “He’s been feeling anxious that she’s trying to send some kind of message to him.” The source told Closer: “She’s saying it’s simply a case of waiting for her engagement ring to be repaired because it’s in with the jewellers, which is true, but Harry doesn’t understand why she won’t wear something else from her extensive jewellery collection in its place.
“He’s confused and hurt.”
In a post on Instagram, Meghan was not wearing her diamond engagement ring which usually sits above her gold wedding band and diamond eternity ring. The Duchess was pictured beaming alongside her friends Kadi Lee and Cleo Wade. Lee, who has the Instagram handle Highbrow Hippie posted the picture of the trio on her story.
Despite Meghan’s engagement ring not appearing in the Instagram snap it should not be too long until she is reunited with it.
A source told Page Six that the six-figure ring is currently “being fixed”. The insider did not specify what repairs were taking place on the ring. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged in November 2017. The couple got married in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018.
