Prince Harry will wear a wedding ring after all

While his big brother is not a fan of wearing jewellery, Prince Harry is happy to put a ring on it.

On May 19 we’ll finally get to see everyone’s favourite soon-to-be-weds profess their love and commitment to one another at their royal wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials, which will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, will include the exchanging of wedding bands.

A well placed pal explained to E! that Harry “does want to wear a wedding band unlike his older brother who prefers to go without one”.

Before Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s 2011 royal wedding, the Palace released a statement explaining that the royal would not wear a band because he prefers not to wear jewels.

However, we all know the former military man is a huge fan of wearing symbols of his devotion – he is rarely seen without his beaded bracelets.

Prince William isn’t a fan of wearing jewellery.

He began wearing bracelets after his mother’s passing in 1997. It is believed he purchased his first while in Africa – and it is a reminder of happier times.

“I first came [to Africa] in 1997, straight after my mum died. My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags – we were going to Africa to get away from it all,” he told Town & Country in an interview a year ago.

If you cast your mind back to earlier times, Meghan has shared on Instagram an image in which she is wearing an identical one!

Now look at the identical one that Meghan is wearing.

You know what else has a nice ring to it… Queen Elizabeth’s very generous gift to her grandson.

It is expected that Her Majesty will give Prince Harry and Meghan Markle their own stately home as a wedding present.

She famously gifted Prince William and Duchess Catherine Anmer Hall, which sits on her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, two years after their 2011 nuptials – after she had it renovated.

We’re definitely down with that!

Royal insiders at Hello believe that Meghan and Harry could receive the York Cottage.

The Queen has no shortage of homes, but the York Cottage is definitely a fabulous choice.

It used to be known as the Bachelor’s Cottage.

It was created as a residence for Sandringham House.

King Edward VII passed it on to his son Prince George, later King George V, and his wife Queen Mary as a wedding gift.

Sounds perfect for the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
