The big question is, was the bracelet a gift from Prince Harry, who was by his Bride to be side during the private ceremony on Tuesday evening.

The diamond cross bracelet is a common baptism gift or keepsake because of what it symbolizes, according to multiple publications.  The cross on the bracelet also serves as a biblical reference and may be given to a woman who is expecting a boy.

Markle, who was raised Protestant and attended Catholic school wasn’t required to be baptized into the Church of England, but wanted to out of her love for Harry, the Royal family and to honor the Queen.

She holds the official title of Supreme Governor of the Church of England, which gives her the power to appoint archbishops, bishops, and deans of Anglican cathedrals.  Not only does converting demonstrate Markle’s commitment to Prince Harry’s faith, it’s also a sign of regard for the Queen and her role as a Church leader.
