It’s fair to say that one of the most epic events in the royal calendar of 2011 was the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton.
- The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, married Duchess Catherine back in April 2011, but has never worn a wedding ring since the big day.
- But it turns out there’s a reason why William chose to be ring-less.
- This royal news comes after Prince William’s cousin Princess Eugenie shared an unseen photograph from her wedding day in celebration of her husband Jack Brooksbank’s birthday.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at Westminster Abbey, leaving the nation swooning over the fairy tale day.
Despite having the dreamiest wedding of the decade and being one of the most iconic couples in the world, there’s one marriage tradition that the future King doesn’t abide by.
Prince William doesn’t wear a wedding ring – but there’s a specific reason for his choice not to.
The Queen’s grandson is simply not a fan of jewellery and so opted against a ring prior to his and Catherine’s big day.
Prince William takes after his grandfather Prince Philip in this way. The Queen’s husband has never worn a wedding ring during their 72-year marriage.
Duchess Catherine actually wears three rings on her wedding finger.
One is her simple wedding band made out of Welsh gold and another is her engagement ring, once belonging to Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana.
The 12-carat oval sapphire is set in white gold, surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds.
Kate makes a trio of rings with a 0.23 carat diamond piece, which is thought to have been given to her following the birth of her first son, Prince George, back in 2013.
