Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially engaged – and now we've got fresh details about the gorgeous engagement ring the royal gifted to his American bride-to-be. Get ready to swoon, because the details are pretty touching.

Markle's new ring is made up of three diamonds, one large center stone flanked by two smaller stones. The large stone is from Botswana, a country that is very near and dear to Harry's heart (he also took Markle there on a trip this past summer). The two side stones, meanwhile, come from the collection of his late mother, Princess Diana.

Harry designed the ring himself and it was crafted by British jewelers Cleave and Company, who are the jewelers to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Prince William also went the sentimental route with his own engagement ring for Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge was given Princess Diana's 12-carat sapphire ring, which also has a halo of 14 smaller diamonds.

“It’s my mother’s engagement ring,” William said at the time of the engagement. “So I thought it was quite nice because obviously she’s not going to be around to share any of the fun and excitement of it all – this was my way of keeping her sort of close to it all.”

We're sure Prince Harry feels the same way.
