Trooping the Colour, which took place earlier this month, marked Meghan Markle's first public appearance post-pregnancy-the event also marked the debut of the royal's one-year-anniversary present from Prince Harry: a diamond eternity band, which she now wears below her Welsh gold wedding ring. There was, however, a new addition to Markle's left finger that went completely unnoticed, reports Town and Country.

If you look closely at the event's images of the Duchess of Sussex's engagement ring, you'll find that it's been majorly upgraded; the new mother seems to have replaced the traditional yellow-gold band with an ultra-thin pavé option. Though the bauble's three stones-the central diamond once belonged to Princess Diana; the others were sourced from Botswana, which is reportedly where the couple fell in love-appear to be unchanged, the band feels decidedly more contemporary.

This is fitting for Markle, who has modernized just about every aspect of her royal role since the moment she walked down the aisle solo on her wedding day at Windsor Castle. Since then, she and Prince Harry have launched a joint Instagram account, moved out of Kensington Palace into Frogmore Cottage (a residence nearly 30 minutes away from Prince William and Kate Middleton's own), and given their son, Archie, an unconventional name (for a royal, that is!).

Though it's clear that Markle is determined to make her title her own, she's blazing forward with her husband's full support. Shortly after giving birth to Archie, Markle told reporters that she has "the best two guys in the world," and that she's "really happy" to have her husband by her side as they begin this new chapter.
