Meghan Markle made a simple but beautiful statement while making her way out of New York City. The Duchess of Sussex stepped out of her hotel, Wednesday, February 20, in a chic yet-casual look that she hasn’t worn in a while. While eyes were of course on the royal’s style, it was her sweet jewelry that stood out the most. The 37-year-old wore a gold pendant that read “mommy” around her neck. The piece has not been seen on the royal before, leaving some royal watchers to believe it was gifted to her during her baby shower.

The pendant, which also comes in white and rose gold, is priced on the site for $850. Prince Harry’s wife didn’t just make a statement with her choice of jewels. The former Suits actress also wore a hat that said “Rectify” a possible nod to BFF Abigail Spencer, who starred in the series.

The hat could have possibly been borrowed from the fellow actress, as she was seen wearing it earlier in the week. In addition to the hat and necklace, Meghan achieved total comfort with her look. The mommy-to-be wore a black sweat jacket by Ingrid and Isabel with matching leggings from Lululemon. Meghan traded in her heels for a pair of Adidas Ultra Boost sneakers. The Duchess braved the frigid NYC weather, wearing a coat over her activewear.
