The Duchess of Sussex's recent look in Nigeria included a sweet tribute to Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan were attending a reception for military families in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, and according to People Meghan's necklace once belonged to Princess Diana.

The dainty piece was reportedly a "recent gift" from Harry and features a diamond-embellished cross dangling from a gold chain.

This wasn't Meghan's only homage to Princess Diana while the pair were visting Nigeria for the Invictus Games. On the pairs first day there, Meghan wore a gold collar necklace - similar to the one Diana had when she and King Charles III toured in 1990.

During their visit, Meghan also shared a rare glimpse into motherhood with their son Prince Archie, 5, and daughter Princess Lilibet, 2, sharing a recent exchange she had with Lilibet.

"Our daughter, Lili, she's much, much tinier than you guys," Meghan told a class of kindergarteners at the Lightway Academy, according to People. "She's about to turn three. And a few weeks ago, she looked at me and she would just see the reflection in my eyes. And she [goes], 'Mama, I see me in you.'"

"Now, she was talking really literally," she continued. "But I hung onto those words in a very different way. And I thought, 'Yes, I do see me in you, and you see me in you.' As I look around this room," she added, "I see myself in all of you as well."

She gave another sweet nod to Lilibet, wearing the yellow dress she wore when announcing her pregnancy with the young princess.
