Meghan Markle is at the center of a wealth controversy as she arrived at Prince Harry’s Invictus Games wearing a ring estimated to cost nearly $100,000.

Royal commentator Daniela Elser, writing for, scrutinized the former Suits actress’s choice of attire as she reunited with the Duke of Sussex, pointing out her expensive accessories, which she deemed attention-grabbing

“While the Duchess had flown out of Los Angeles wearing over $10,000 worth of designer pieces, including carrying an Hermès scarf and donning now sold-out Valentino flats, for her first Invictus event, she chose a $217 Banana Republic shirt dress.”

Despite opting for an affordable dress for the event, Meghan was noticed wearing a pinky ring, valued at nearly $100,000.

According to Elser, Meghan’s decision to wear the sparkler made her appear ‘arrogant,’ as she showcased the piece at a charitable event, a move that didn’t go unnoticed.

“Immediately, this situation called to mind the Sussexes’ highly successful Southern Africa tour in 2019 when the former actress wore a series of affordable pieces and avoided anything designer in a clever move to keep the focus on the actual work,” Elser said.

“However, this time around, as Meghan beamed alongside Harry in Dusseldorf, she was also wearing a diamond pinky ring of mysterious provenance, reportedly valued at $96,000. (In 2021, the couple denied the piece had been made using a stone given to them as part of a gift of diamonds from someone in the Middle East.)

“Regardless of where the ring came from, whether the Duchess received it as a gift or purchased it at full price, why display it now?

There is something slightly jarring, something discordant, about seeing such extravagance, such a symbol of the extreme privilege of the Sussexes’ life, amidst a massive charitable effort,” Elser concluded.

Meghan’s choice of wearing the high-value ring has ignited discussions about the optics of showcasing luxury items during charity events.

ritics argue that such displays can divert attention away from the charitable cause and instead put the spotlight on personal wealth. A

s the Duchess continues her public appearances alongside Prince Harry, her fashion choices are likely to remain under scrutiny.
