Duchess Meghan celebrated her 40th birthday on Aug. 4. In honour of the very special day, the Duchess of Sussex made a new virtual appearance in a video for Archewell featuring Melissa McCarthy. The mom of two looked as chic as ever as she sported two gorgeous zodiac necklaces that paid tribute to her and Prince Harry's children, Archie and newborn Lilibet.
Meghan wore two versions of Logan Hollowell's Constellation Necklaces ($1,785). She wore the Gemini version for Lili and the Taurus one for Archie! Lilibet was born on June 4, 2021 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and the couple shared the news a few days later. Archie was born on May 6, 2019 in England.
Each one comes with an 18-inch chain. The necklaces are available in white sapphire and diamond as well as rose gold, yellow gold and white gold. They are part of a larger Constellation collection from the brand which also includes rings and earrings.
"The Zodiac necklaces in my collection are made here in Los Angeles with conflict-free diamonds and 100% recycled gold," Logan Hollowell said in a statement. "Each is designed with the intention that its wearer feels more connected to their true self and reminded that they are on their divine path."
The sentimental necklaces were on full display because the duchess wore her raven mane swept back into a bun. She was outfitted in a cream knitted dress and had a coordinating topper draped over her shoulders for warmth. She rounded out the look with what seems to be her copper Manolo Blahnik pumps.
It appears the video was shot in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Montecito home because the desk is filled with personal photos. It was part of Archewell's new 40x40 initiative which is a global project to encourage people around the world to commit to giving 40 minutes of their time to support women going back to work. Furthermore, the couple's beagle, Guy, appears on a dog bed sound asleep next to her!
The now-40-year-old asked 40 people in her life to donate 40 minutes to help mentor women reentering the workforce.
"With my 40th lap around the sun in mind, it made me wonder: what would happen if we all committed 40 minutes to helping someone else or to mentoring someone in need?" the Duchess of Sussex said in a post on the Archewell website about the concept. "And then what would happen if we asked our friends to do the same?"
Duchess Kate is also a fan of jewelry that pays tribute to her and Prince William's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duchess of Cambridge recently sported Daniella Draper's Gold Fixed Alphabet Necklace ($875) during her and William's tour of Scotland.
