  • Meghan Markle wore Princess Diana's bracelet while filming her and Prince Harry's Oprah interview.

  • The couple is expected to talk about the late princess in the CBS special airing on Sunday.

  • Harry also used two stones from Diana's jewelry collection to design Markle's engagement ring.

Meghan Markle wore a bracelet that belonged to Princess Diana while filming her sit-down interview with Oprah, a representative for the Duchess of Sussex confirmed to Insider.

According to the Express, the Cartier tennis bracelet has an estimated value of more than $174,800 (£125,000).

It is one of three bangles Markle can be seen wearing in two 30-second trailers released by CBS ahead of the two-hour special, "Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A Primetime Special," which is due to air on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.

Wearing the bracelet could be a subtle nod to Diana during an interview that is expected to discuss the late princess.

In one of the trailers, Prince Harry says: "My biggest concern was history repeating itself," which is thought to be in reference to Diana.

In another clip, he compares his and Markle's decision to step back as senior royals to his mother's experience, saying: "For me, I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her [Diana] going through this process by herself all those years ago."

For the interview, Markle wore the inherited piece with a now-sold-out $4,700 Armani dress and accessorized using additional jewelry including a Cartier Love bracelet, another bangle, and a necklace by Pippa Small.

Markle already has a special relationship with Diana's jewelry - Prince Harry previously used two stones from his mother's collection to design Markle's custom-made engagement ring.

"The little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewelry collection to make sure she's with us on this crazy journey together," he told the BBC during their first interview as an engaged couple in 2017.

"Obviously not being able to meet his mum, it's so important to me to know that she's a part of this with us," Markle added.

Markle and Kate Middleton, have both worn a number of other items from Diana's jewelry collection. Diana's Asprey aquamarine ring, which she wore to an auction of her own clothes in 1997, was a gift from Harry to his bride as her "something blue" for their wedding.

In 2019, Markle also wore the butterfly earrings that the late princess had worn on a trip to Canada with Prince Charles in 1986, and she was seen wearing Diana's 18ct yellow gold bangle, complete with two sapphires, during the launch of her clothing capsule with Smart Works.

While Oprah told viewers "there is no subject that's off-limits" in the highly anticipated interview, it is not yet known to what extent Princess Diana will be discussed.
