Meghan Markle’s second aaa quality copy Cartier Tank, an all-gold Francaise, previously belonged to Princess Diana. The story goes that it was originally Prince William who took possession of the watch after his mother’s death in 1997, before giving it to Prince Harry in exchange for what became Kate Middleton’s engagement ring.
The cheap fake Cartier Tank dates back to 1918 and draws design inspiration from the then-new Renault military tanks seen by Louis Cartier during the First World War. Other celebrities to wear a high quality replica Cartier Tank include Jackie Kennedy, Yves Saint Laurent and Andy Warhol. The Tank Francaise was introduced in 1996.
