I think it is a very touching and sentimental gesture. It is a very beautiful ring and I'm sure it means a great deal to William. I am happy that Kate will wear it.

FYI ~ London is FIVE hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. The photo shoot is suppose to happen shortly. The interview will occur at 7:00 PM, London time.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought it had been said that Prince Harry had his mother's ring?

She's been Kate Middleton far too long for me to ever refer her as Catherine the Princess or whatever title she will gain later on in life.

But either way, congratulations to them both! They must be very happy.

No photocall as of yet, but usually the BRF is pretty timely, so hopefully the 7 pm interview will go off without a hitch (no pun intended).
Congrats to the couple (!), but I thought Harry got Diana's ring?

Can't wait to see the interview oh and poor Camilla having to look at that ring at events LOL she can't get away from Diana ever either.
I watched a montage that was put together for TV last night and could not believe that it was more about Diana than Catherine. Each photo of Catherine was on a split screen with a photo of Diana, with comments like "Kate is only an inch shorter than Diana." WHAT???!!!

We celebrated Diana, now it is Catherine's turn to have ALL the attention.

I think it is touching too but if I were in Kate's place , I would prefer any kind of ring over this for an engagement - it just seems as a "too much" thing to me: too many comparisons, too much pressure,and perhaps the thoughts of many people about this ring marking the beginning of an unlucky marriage in the past. Perhaps it would have been better if William offered this ring to her in another occasion, like the birth of a child

Two royal weddings? who else is getting married? I think she'll wear Princess Diana's wedding tiara.

I'm not sure, but I know in her will, Diana left most of her personal jewelry to Harry because she knew as the "spare" his inheritance would be much smaller than William's (who will have access to the royal jewels, estates, etc. when he is king).

Didn't Diana wear the Spencer tiara? I don't think Kate will wear it, as she is no Spencer :)

Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock ofcourse. And I don't care if they're not really royalty. Noble blood is still noble blood. (not anymore anyway)

Getting ahead of myself here but, if they every have a daughter ( I think that she will be named Diana).



For some crazy reason I thought that the Ring was left for Harry. My BAD OK, I missed the post above. I am gald that I am not the only one who thought this.

Howl. I don't know what to think of Diana's engagement ring for Kate. Omens aside, it is sentimental.

Congratulations to the happy couple. I also thought Prince Harry had Diana's engagement ring. I was hoping that Catherine would get her own ring, as Diana's ring comes with so much.........stuff.

Dang - they just said she got D's ring.

james dimbleby was saying that a title, likely a dukedom, will be created for william. only other thing that would make this all perfect is if diana was here to celebrate. i'm sure she would be so very proud.

Prince Albert II of Monaco in July 2011. I don't think Catherine will wear Diana's wedding tiara because that belongs to the Spencer family. The Cambridge Lover's Knot is more likely, but I'm hoping they take something out of the vaults for her! The CLK tiara hadn't been worn for a while when Diana received it so it seems likely Catherine will get a "new" one.. It was great to see some Delhi Dunbar on Camilla since we had only seen it previously in black and white photos. Ooo, I'm checking out Geoffrey Munn's book and flipping through it.
