Prince William Doesn’t Wear His Wedding Ring — And the Reason Will Shock You
We love shipping our favorite celebrity couples, from Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin to Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth to Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. But royal couples aren’t falling behind in the race to win our hearts with adorable public appearances and romantic gestures. And when we talk about royal couples, the first pair that comes to mind is Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Do Wedding Rings Matter?
Theirs was a fairy tale wedding that took place almost eight years ago, where the two said their vows in front of a star-studded audience and millions of people watching from home. But while Kate and William did exchange wedding bands at their royal nuptials, we’ve rarely seen the Prince wear his ring during public engagements.
Wedding rings are commonly understood as a symbol of love and loyalty to your partner, and taking it off is considered a sign of trouble in an otherwise blissful marriage. How often have we seen celebrities making headlines in the tabloid for being spotted without their ring, a clear sign that the couple is headed towards a split.
But that’s not the case with William and Kate who have been together for eight years, despite William’s habit of not wearing his wedding band. Royal fans can breathe a sigh of relief because this isn’t a sign of marital woes between the beloved couple. In fact, William is more committed to his wife than ever and no piece of jewelry can ever change his feeling towards her. But the real reason why the Duke of Cambridge won’t wear a ring is because of his aversion to the tradition.
Going Against the Norm
We all know that William isn’t the man to wear jewelry, whether it’s a ring, a necklace or even a hand-me-down. In fact, he even discussed this with his wife before the wedding and made sure that she was on board with his personal preference. And of course, Kate was happy to honor his request and never pestered him to wear his ring, even though she has been never spotted in public without her signature blue diamond that William presented her with when he took the knee to propose to her.
Moreover, Prince William isn’t the only royal to shun this tradition. It seems that the distaste for jewelry runs in the royal blood because even the Duke’s own grandfather, Prince Phillip, has never been spotted with a ring. But despite that, his marriage to Queen Elizabeth II has definitely stood the test of time and the couple is going strong even after 70 years. It doesn’t matter if William prefers to be ring-free, because his current relationship status is public knowledge, especially since over 2 billion people watched him wed Kate Middleton in 2011.
William isn’t the only one shunning the age-old wedding traditions that most couples have been following for centuries. Kate also showed that modern royals aren’t confined by outdated traditions after she omitted the word ‘obey’ from her marriage vows.
