Queen Camilla’s engagement ring’s mysterious history and past as a royal push present revealed ahead of her 18th wedding anniversary.

Plenty of the best celebrity engagement rings catch fans’ attention, but those that belong to the Royal Family are perhaps especially iconic and full of history. From Kate Middleton’s stunning sapphire that once belonged to the late Princess Diana to Meghan Markle’s engagement ring with its diamonds from Botswana where she and Prince Harry vacationed, the special details behind these pieces tell unique stories. Though Queen Camilla’s engagement ring has a much more mysterious history and is even rumored to have been a royal push present

Whilst other royals have colorful gems like the blush pink stone at the center of Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring, the Queen Consort’s ring features just diamonds. The Art Deco design exudes classic elegance with an emerald-cut diamond estimated to be around five carats and baguette-cut diamonds either side. It’s reported to be worth around $254,527/£212,000.

King Charles gave his wife of almost 18 years this fabulous ring before their wedding day back in April 2005. And it’s got a deeply personal past as Queen Camilla’s engagement ring once belonged to the late Queen Mother. She was pictured wearing it a lot in the 1980s particularly and although she wore it on her ring finger, it wasn’t her own engagement ring.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for the Salute to Freedom Gala in 2021. Will we see them in their fancy frocks for this year’s Met Gala?

Before then, however, Prince Harry is scheduled to speak at a pricey summit for business leaders in San Francisco for his employer, Silicon Valley startup BetterUp.

But he’ll be on stage without Meghan.

Their recent joint appearance at the surprise vow renewal between Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi with other celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Courtney Cox, has sparked talk about where they might be next.

Christine Ross and Christina Garibaldi, hosts of the Royally Us podcast, believes it could be the

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set for Met Gala debut?

Since moving to sunny California, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first made headlines with their Oprah interview, then their recent Netflix documentary ‘Harry & Meghan’, and now with Prince Harry’s book ‘Spare.’

Despite the news surrounding these releases, the couple has made select public appearances, with interviews done sporadically.

But after being spotted at Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s surprise vow renewal party during the latter’s 50th birthday party, royal commentators have begun speculating whether the royal couple will be attempting to connect more with the A-List Hollywood lifestyle and possibly even attend this year’s Met Gala.

For Christine Ross and Christina Garibaldi, hosts of ‘Royally Us’, an Us Weekly podcast, it’s clear what Prince Harry and Meghan are trying to achieve since their appearance at the vow renewal party, with stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and more present.

“It was definitely an A-List Hollywood guest list and I think that’s where Harry and Meghan want to find themselves — on that A-List Hollywood circuit,” said Garibaldi.

“I think this is the first of many times we’re going to see Harry and Meghan in these A-List circuits. I would keep an eye out on things like the Met Gala, the big red carpets this year, to see where they are going to find their place in the celebrity minefield.”

That’s when Ross chimed in: “I totally agree with you. I think they are going to be making their Met Gala debut this year, for sure.

At the vow renewal party, Prince Harry and Meghan were reportedly introduced to Adam Lilling by DeGeneres. Lilling is a venture capitalist who founded Plus Capital, and worked with DeGeneres in investing in Pachama
