Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children will be born into the privileged life of a royal lifestyle. But what makes it all the more special is all the precious family heirlooms they inherit. However, there is something even more special that the new royal, Meghan Markle wants to pass on to her daughter.
The Duchess of Sussex owns a £4,200 Cartier watch, which is extremely special to her, and she is saving the timeless gift for her daughter.
Before marrying the British prince, Markle was a successful Hollywood actress. While she was shooting for her popular television law drama 'Suits', the 36-year-old actress gifted herself the expensive Cartier watch with the hopes to pass it on to her daughter.
In an interview with Hello! Magazine in 2015, the present Duchess of Sussex said: "I've always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch."
Riding high on the success of Suits, she decided to splurge on a two-tone version of the watch. The former actress also engraved the watch with "To M.M. From M.M".
The designer timepiece is even more special to Markle as it involves her sentiments and emotions. She was always clear of what she actually wanted to do with the watch. "That's what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them," Markle told the publication.
The design of the watch is over 100 years old, making it the perfect heirloom for Markle's daughter with a piece of heritage.

However, this is not the first time a member of the British royalty has shown a liking for Cartier watches. Princess Diana, Prince Harry's late mother, also liked the Cartier Tank. The New York Times reported that she owned an all-gold Tank Française and a Tank Louis Cartier.
Although the newly-wed couple is not expecting a child, in their first interview as an engaged couple, Prince Harry told BBC: "You know, one step at a time. Hopefully, we'll start a family in the near future." Last year, the Duke of Sussex told The Telegraph: "I would love to have kids."
