When Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle, he made positive he created an engagement ring with a particular which means to it, and it seems he’s not the one romantic Royal to do that.
Let’s have a look at the ring Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with, lets? Arguably essentially the most well-known engagement ring on the earth, everyone knows it was initially Princess Diana’s. However have you learnt why Prince Charles picked that exact ring?
The sapphire surrounded by a cluster of diamonds was one of some rings Prince Charles picked out for Diana from Royal jewellers Home of Garrard, and she or he instantly fell in love with it.
However the design had a particular which means for Charles as a result of it was impressed by a well-known brooch that has been within the Royal household for many years: the one Queen Victoria wore on her marriage ceremony day to Prince Albert, which was additionally designed by the Home of Garrard.
Claire Scott, who leads the design group on the jewellers, advised The Telegraph, ‘Prince Albert commissioned it earlier than his marriage to Victoria in 1840, and introduced it to his future bride as a marriage reward. Queen Victoria wore it on her costume once they married, as her “one thing blue”‘.
Within the interview he and Kate held after their engagement, Prince William mentioned, ‘It’s my mom’s engagement ring, and it’s very particular to me, as Kate could be very particular to me now as effectively. It was solely proper the 2 have been put collectively. It was my method of constructing positive mom didn’t miss out on immediately and the joy and the truth that we’re going to spend the remainder of our lives collectively.’
If that doesn’t soften your coronary heart, this (unconfirmed thoughts you) truth will; apparently, each William and Harry acquired to select one thing that was their mom’s, and it was Harry who picked the ring, although when he realised how a lot Kate meant to William, he determined to offer it to him.
There’s no method of realizing whether or not that is truly true, however the romantic in me goes with it.
