A spokesman from the palace released a statement saying “There is only going to be one ring in accordance with the couple’s wishes.”
If you haven’t heard! It looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are opting out of the tradition of the man and the woman both wearing wedding bands as husband and wife. Our first thought is, well, maybe Prince William is trying to say that his vows will commit him to Kate Middleton and he doesn’t need a ring to express his promise of dedication and commitment. But still, we think it’s a little strange or odd, considering Prince William’s own father wears a wedding band. But, interestingly enough, this is said to be a mutual decision.
Again, the spokesman from the palace released a statement saying “There is only going to be one ring in accordance with the couple’s wishes.”
According to the release, Prince William will not be wearing a ring but, like Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), Prince William will “put a ring on it.” With a sigh of relief, we are happy to report that bride-to-be Kate Middleton is going with tradition, and getting her bling. In fact, word is, Kate Middleton’s much talked about wedding band will be passed down from Prince William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and made of none other than Welsh gold. Mined in the Welsh mountains, the gold is very special to the royal family and should be quite a treat to Kate who gets to wear the symbolic jewelry every day for the rest of her life.
A source for the palace also released a statement saying, “The Queen has given a piece of the gold that has been in the family to Prince William as a gift.” The Crown Jeweler, likely Harry Collins, has been commissioned to make the ring Kate will wear as princess of the royal family.
