Do Kate and Diana have the same ring?
Kate did actually have the ring adjusted once it was her engagement ring, because it was too big for her finger. So, as it transpires, Meghan Markle could have been the lucky lady to wear Princess Diana’s iconic band – but it wasn’t meant to be.
Why did Diana pick her ring?
It’s been documented that Diana chose the Sapphire ring because it matched the colour of her eyes and reminded her of her mother’s ring. The ring, an off-the-rack design by royal jeweller Garrard, features a halo design with 14 diamonds surrounding the blue centre stone.
Did Harry inherit Diana’s engagement ring?
Harry gave up his mother’s engagement ring so William could propose to Middleton, Paul Burrell said. In a documentary, Princess Diana’s former butler said Harry originally inherited the sapphire ring. “His one thing he kept from his mother, he gave to his brother,” Burrell said.
Why was Diana a princess but not Kate?
Even though Diana was known as ‘Princess Diana’, Kate is not a princess just because she married Prince William. To become a Princess, one has to be born into the Royal Family such as Prince William and Kate’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, or the Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne.
When did Diana stop wearing her engagement ring?
Despite her divorce from Prince Charles, Diana never stopped wearing her engagement ring. Upon her death in 1997, it was placed in the care of the royal family, where it remained until it landed on Kate Middleton’s, now the Duchess of Cambridge, finger in 2010, when Prince William proposed.
Did Kate Middleton change her engagement ring?
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, had to have the ring which was previously owned by Princess Diana altered due to it being too large. But royal fans are unable to stop the subtle change to Kate’s ring. Instead of having to resize the band, the Duchess had platinum beads added to help it fit.
