Two lovers that have been together for a very long time have finally joined knots last month in Kenya. The engagement rings are the same ring that Princess Diana wore. This ring was given by his brother Prince Harry, who had kept the ring ever since Princess Diana died in the car crash. Prince Harry gave the promise ring that belonged to Princess Diana to his brother Prince William due to the engagement. The ring was an 18 cart sapphire with diamonds. The ring is very special to the Royal family, which is now given to Kate Middleton, the future Princess and Queen.
Diana, who died in 1997, had the 18k sapphire ring when she was engaged and later on married with Prince Charles in 1981. After she died, her son Prince Harry had the ring and Prince William had the watch. Prince William and his Kate Middleton ring is seen everywhere together every since their engagement. Prince William is very happy to keep his mothers memory alive through the engagement ring and if Princess Diana was alive, she would have been very proud of her son. The couple were seen at the St. James’ Palace for photographs. Prince William had asked Kate’s father for his daughters hand before proposing to Kate. He was pretty nervous before the big moment and wasn’t really sure if she would say yes.
It has been announced that the wedding will take place next year in April at Westminster Abbey in the theme of a semi-state affair. Prince William wanted to make sure that his mother is not missing out in any of the celebration by giving the 18 carat diamond sapphire ring to Kate Middleton. It is a great honour for Kate to have Princess Diana’s promise ring. The ring was selected by Princess Diana herself, as she had a collection presented to her by Crown Jewelers. The ring was designed by Garrard from the jewelry house. Once both Prince William and Kate Middleton are married, they will live in North Wales, as Prince William is currently based there with the Royal Air Force.
