Did Kate Middleton’s Engagement Ring Belong To Prince Harry?


We’ve all caught royal wedding fever this week with the long awaited announcement that Prince William and Kate Middleton were finally tying the knot. What made it even more special was that William proposed with Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring. But apparently the ring actually belonged to Prince Harry! According to Popeater after Diana died in 1997, Prince Charles took his sons to Diana’s home in Kensington Palace and had them choose momentos. William selected the 18k yellow gold Cartier Tank Francaise watch that Diana used to teach him how to tell time, while Harry choose her engagement ring. A source explains:

Harry was happy to give the ring to his brother. He loves William and thinks it’s only right that one day the woman sitting next to the King will be wearing his mother’s ring. That’s the way Diana would have wanted it.

Bless. When Charles purchased the ring back in 1981, it cost over $40,000, but now because of the connection with Diana, it's considered to be priceless. What do you think about Kate wearing Diana’s ring?
