MEGHAN Markle has been spotted without her engagement ring again – as she laughs by Prince Harry’s side in Germany.
The Duchess of Sussex donned white Staud shorts and a JCrew Cardigan and showed off her £280 Givenchy Belt and £1,200 Chanel pumps at an Invictus Games wheelchair basketball match.

But eagle-eyed fans noticed that she was missing her diamond engagement ring.
Designed by Prince Harry himself, the stunning sparkler features two of the late Princess Diana’s diamonds – but was nowhere to be seen as Meghan held hands with Harry at the event.
The duchess also went without her ring at a glitzy New York gala back in May.
When the couple got engaged in 2017, Harry said: “The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s her favourite.
“The main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewellery collection, to make sure she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”
Meghan later blinged up the engagement ring, replacing the thick gold band Harry chose with a much thinner micro-pave gold one.
The Sussexes held hands in a show of unity before warmly greeting fans who welcomed them into the sports arena in Dusseldorf.
Yesterday, Meghan was reunited with Harry after spending almost a week apart when she joined him at a reception for 1,600 athletes and their friends and family.
And today, the royals looked in high spirits as they entered the basketball court while keen sports fans applauded.
Harry, 38, and Meg, 42, beamed as they took their seats before the match between Ukraine and Australia.
The Duke and Duchess then got into the spirit of the games as they waved their hands from side to side along with the raucous crowd.
Harry was decked out in a black polo shirt, jeans and trainers.
The pair gasped in excitement as Ukraine edged out Australia in a tightly-fought contest on day four of the games.
The Duke and Duchess were also seen talking animatedly to wheelchair athlete Annika Hutsler of the USA.
They are later expected to attend the swimming finals at 5pm and wheelchair basketball finals at 7pm UK time.
Meghan landed in the German city last night and was photographed after being driven from the airport’s VIP area around 4pm local time.
She joined up with Harry as he had earlier flown to the UK for a WellChild charity bash and vigil at the final resting place of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
The couple and guests had been invited for an evening of music, entertainment, and traditional German food.
The Duchess took to the stage last night at the evening reception and apologised to guests for being “a little late to the party”.
Meghan explained she had to make milkshakes and get their children Archie, four, and daughter Lilibet, two, “settled down” before she could fly from LA.
Harry stood beside her clasping his hands and grinning while the Duchess gave a two minute speech to guests.
The event, hosted by Ken Fisher – Chairman and CEO, and Dave Coker, President, Fisher House Foundation – was held at a conference centre inside Dusseldorf airport.
Meghan told the crowd: “It’s so special to be here and I’m sorry I’m a little late for the party.
“Three milkshakes and a school drop-off and I just landed a couple of hours ago.
“I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you.
“It’a amazing and I hear it has got off to a good start so far.”
Harry had earlier been enjoying the Invictus games on his own and sat with pal and BBC presenter JJ Chambers, 36, who appeared in 2020 Strictly.
The Prince appeared to be in an excited mood yesterday as he lived every emotion from the sideline watching competitors in the wheelchair basketball.
It comes as German media outlets have reported that the Duchess will deliver a “very emotional” closing speech during the farewell ceremony.
The Invictus Games, for disabled military veterans, features a host of different sports and challenges and are due to last a week.
Their children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two, remain in the US.
