Meghan Markle’s controversial diamond earrings gifted to her by Saudi Crown Prince quietly tucked away from public view

DIAMOND earrings gifted to Meghan from the Saudi Crown Prince — just three weeks after he ordered the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi — have been quietly tucked away from public view.

The Duchess, 39, was pictured wearing the earrings, which were a wedding gift, to a state dinner on a tour in 2018.

At the time, the Crown Prince was facing worldwide condemnation for orchestrating the murder.

Kensington aides told reporters on the royal tour in Fiji that the Chopard chandelier earrings had been borrowed from a jeweller for the Duchess.

She then wore them again to Prince Charles’ 70th birthday in November the same year. But she has not been seen wearing them since.

As a gift from a foreign head of state, the earrings would officially be considered Crown property.

Sources claim aides were shocked that Meghan wore the earrings, given her views on women’s rights in Saudi Arabia.

They have now been placed in safe storage, it is believed. But a spokesman for Meghan last night refused to comment on their whereabouts.
