Meghan Markle’s black velvet gown may have stolen the show at the British Fashion Awards on Monday night, but her accessories deserve a closer look.

Markle paired her Givenchy gown with some gold jewellery that appeared to be a touching nod to her new father-in-law Prince Charles.

The Duchess of Sussex’s earrings and bracelets were from designer Pippa Small’s collection with Turquoise Mountain Foundation – an organisation founded by Prince Charles to train and provide employment for young artisans in Afghanistan, Myanmar, and the Middle East. The organisation also aims to preserve the area’s culture, as well as provide support for architectural restoration.

Markle wore the $US140 Oshna bangle, the $US160 Omeen bangle, and the $US430 Wajiha bangle for a layered look on her right wrist. She completed the look with a pair of $US60 Nosheen stud earrings. The pieces are all handcrafted by artisans in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Markle and Charles have reportedly formed quite a close bond in the past few months. An unnamed family member told Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl that Charles and Markle became very close after he walked the duchess down the aisle during the royal wedding in May. Charles stepped in after Markle’s father dropped out of the wedding following health issues and a staged paparazzi photo scandal.

A source also told the Daily Mail that Charles already has a nickname for the duchess, as he reportedly calls her “Tungsten” since he thinks she’s “tough and unbending” like the metal.

It seems like Markle may have used her accessories as a subtle way to support her father-in-law’s philanthropic endeavours.
