The whole world lost its mind when the official announcement about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement hit the wires. It’s been 30 years since the planet witnessed the most watched wedding in history – that of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.
In a most sentimental gesture, Prince William presented Kate with his mother’s iconic wedding ring as a way to include Diana in the “excitement”.

No one can argue the glamour of the ring – or its signifance. But I have to wonder if it will ever really be Kate’s? Search the media and it’s “Diana’s Ring”. So much of Kate’s life will not be her own from this point forward, I wonder if perhaps there was another option for the couple.
Perhaps using the stones with the addition of a few others to create a new ring. The stones provide the history and sentimentality, but Kate gets to make her own mark stylistically. She gets to be her own Princess – starting now.
What do you think? If it were you would you want the ring? Or to have your own?
