They’re putting rings on it — and we have the details! Ahead of today’s royal wedding where Prince Harry will officially make Meghan Markle a duchess, we have a little info straight from Kensington Palace on their rings. The duo has chosen Cleave and Company to make their bands.
This is a bit of a break from tradition on Harry’s part — men in the royal family do not always wear wedding rings. While his father Prince Charles wears a signet ring (on his pinky finger), both his brother William and his grandfather Prince Philip go sans-bands.
The couple’s rings were created last year in the Cleave workshop (where her engagement ring was also made) from different metals. The former Suits star’s band has been crafted from a piece of Welsh Gold (a gift from Queen Elizabeth II), while his ring will be a platinum band with a textured finish.
Meghan’s new bauble while surely fit snugly around her three-stone engagement ring, which features two diamonds from Diana’s collection. The center stone is from Botswana, a country the couple has visited together during their whirlwind courtship.
You might remember that, like Markle, Middleton also chose Welsh gold for her wedding band, which she often wears with her Garrad blue sapphire engagement ring and a white gold micro-pave diamond eternity band. Perhaps it’s a hint that thee about-to-be-in-laws are truly in sync!
It could be a big day for Meghan and jewels — she is likely to wear a crown from the royal collection (check out our top five picks). We guess today really is all about that Markle sparkle!
