It’s more of a personal preference thing for British men than it just being something you wear for American men. Prince Edward also wear a wedding ring, yet he’s married to a British woman. Of course they will take their wives’ opinion into it if they don’t want to wear one. I can’t imagine there is much to discuss if the man in question wants to wear a wedding ring. My view on this based on what we know about Harry is that he’s likely to want to wear one.

The Duke of Edinburgh used to wear a wedding ring many years ago. Perhaps with age his fingers have gotten larger so his ring no longer fits.

I believe Charles also wears one again now he's married to Camilla. Andrew also wore one and I believe he wore his rings (as he wore a signet ring) for many years after he got divorced. Edward wears his wedding ring like Charles on his pinky finger with his signet ring.

I like when men wear wedding rings but I guess it's all personal choice. Some men just don't like wearing rings.

I think when it comes to wearing wedding rings, the only thing that really matters is that neither of the couple wear their rings through their nose. Its a symbol of marriage to each other but some couples just don't feel like they need to wear rings to show that they're married.

My son and his wife do wear rings but, even more important to them, have matching tattoos on their left wrists of a barcode pertinent to their wedding date. They met working at the same retail place.

I agree, Meghan being American has little to do with this subject. I know many men who do not wear wedding rings, either from personal preference (they just don't wear rings or any jewelry) or because they cannot because of their jobs.

I happen to think William don’t wear a ring because it probably would irritate his fingers. Notice he don’t wear any jewels other than a watch. He don’t even have a dukedom signet ring.

It may be different with Harry.

Prince Charles has been wearing a ring on his left pinky finger long before even his first marriage. Does he replace the rings with the wedding rings after each marriage?

I personally want my husband to wear a ring, and it does seem to be more common in the States than in many parts of Europe in my experience. Then again, my dad stopped wearing his ring because of his job years ago and my parent's marriage is total #goals so I do not think a ring=fidelity/commitment.

But Harry seems to like to wear jewelry with significance as evidenced by his numerous bracelets and necklaces. You could argue that you do not get more significant than your wedding ring IMO, so I can easily see him wearing one.

Plus, he looks so thrilled to be a "husband" that I think any outward symbol of that he would be happy to wear. My favorite part of the engagement interview was his reaction to the interviewer referring to him as Meghan's husband.

The Prince of Wales have been wearing his Prince of Wales signet ring since his investiture. He places his wedding bands behind his signet ring. He wore his first band up until he became engaged to Camilla. Now he wears the second band.

Again, I think Harry will wear a ring. It’ll be too weird having another Prince not wearing one, IMO.

Certainly Men not wearing a Wedding Ring is more a British thing than an American one.. My Grandfather's, my Father and married Brother don't [or didn't] have them.

Edward VII and George V both wore wedding rings in the traditional way i.e. ring finger of the left hand. George VI didn't wear one, but he was left-handed (as is William) so maybe that had something to do with it. Peter Phillips wears his the traditional way. I'm thinking Harry will probably wear one - just a gut feeling.

I saw pics just recently showing the PoW wearing wedding rings (Diana's and Camilla's) next to his signet ring.

The royal family uses wedding bands made of Welsh gold.

Which explains why royal men don't give the wives ring set that all match a fit together. Catherine's ring is set in white metal, her wedding ring is yellow.

When Princess Beatrice of the United Kingdom got married in 1885, she was attended by ten royal bridesmaids from among her nieces. Imagine Meghan having ten bridesmaids.

Yes, but in those days there was a huge extended BRF with family connections all over Europe. Look at how many granddaughters Queen Victoria had, for instance.
I can't see Meghan having that many bridesmaids. Four or five I would guess, mostly littlies.

^ @Curryong - I agree. I think Ivy Mulroney and Charlotte Cambridge are sure picks.

Maybe one adult 'bridesmaid', a la Pippa, who'll probably be Jessica Mulroney.

It'a a scaled back wedding so i doubt they'd want a larger bridal party than the Cambridges.

I also think her good friend Benita's two daughters are likely a lock as well. She calls them her "fairy goddaughters" and posted pictures of them and Ivy all over her twitter. So, IMO, those for are probably the most likely.

Meghan is very close to Jessica but Lindsey has been her BFF since college and Meghan was her MOH. I wouldn't rule her out especially since she lives in London which I am sure thrilled Meghan. The only thing that might not work is she is a brand new mother so she might not want to be in the spotlight like that.
