Meghan Markle doted on wristwatches and treasured Cartier Tank watches.

Over the years, she has been spotted with a Cartier Tank Francaise, leaving the royal observers confused as they wonder if it's the same watch that Princess Diana once wore.

Prince Harry did gift her a watch that belonged to Princess Diana; however, Meghan also owns a Cartier herself. 

Sometime in 2015, Meghan spoke about the accessory and noted, “I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version.”

Meghan gushed about the brand: "I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch.”

“When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season—which, at the time, felt like such a milestone—I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version,” the then-actress shared.

The Suits alum not only treated herself to a Cartier French Tank, she also opted to adorn her wrist watch with an intriguing note.

It is a note to herself from herself!

She shared at the time, “I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M.' and I plan to give it to my daughter one day.”

At the time of the interview, Meghan didn’t have children; her wish to give the beloved watch showed she was ready to enter parenthood.

Meghan and Prince Harry crossed paths in 2016 and tied the knot in 2018. They now have two children together, Archie, 4, and Lilbet, 2.

According to Daily Express, whenever Meghan is seen wearing a designer, “The Meghan Effect” goes into effect and the item tends to sell out.

The outlet checked the Cartier website, and the watch, which ranges from $3,7000 to $22,300, is still available.
