Prince Harry was not amused by Meghan Markle going without her engagement ring.

After the Duchess of Sussex was seen grabbing lunch with friends earlier this month sans the giant sparkler her husband gifted her in November 2017, insiders close to the pair revealed the move had been a thorn in Harry's side.

Prince Harry isn't happy that Meghan Markle has been going without her wedding ring.

"Harry doesn't understand why she won't wear something else from her extensive jewelry collection in its place. He's confused and hurt," a source explained. "All Meghan is doing by going out without her engagement ring is fuelling the rumors that she and Harry are having marriage troubles, which Harry is absolutely baffled by."

With all the speculation about a possible end to their union, the Duke of Sussex has reportedly been a bit paranoid about where he stands with Meghan. "He's been feeling anxious that she's trying to send some kind of message to him," the insider alleged.

Rumors of an impending divorce have plagued Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's marriage.

However, the reason why Meghan was going without the sparkler may not be as sinister as the red-headed royal thought. According to an insider, the ring was "being fixed."

Harry, who wed the former Suits star in May 2018, gave some insight into the design of the ring — which infamously included stones from his late mother Princess Diana's collection — in a previous interview.

"The ring is yellow gold because that's [her] favorite, and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana, and the little diamonds on either side are from my mother's jewelry collection to make sure that she's with us on this — on this crazy journey together," Harry said in an interview following their engagement.

"Everything about Harry's thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Princess Diana's stones] and obviously not being able to meet his mom, it's so important to me to know that she's a part of this with us," Meghan gushed during the same sit-down.

Closer Magazine via Express spoke to a source about Prince Harry being "confused and hurt" over Meghan not wearing her ring.

Page Six reported that the ring was being fixed.
