Two rings don't make a right

Prince William has decided to buck convention and not wear a wedding ring after his marriage to Kate, sorry, 'Catherine' Middleton. According to posh-watchers, it is customary for male members of the Royal family to wear a signet ring on their wedding finger, but 'Wills' will join the rebellious Duke of Edinburgh in being the only Royal to shun ring wearing.

The Prince's aide confirmed the earth shattering news, telling The Daily Mail, 'It was something the couple discussed but Prince William isn't one for jewellery - he doesn't even wear a signet ring - and decided he didn't want to. It really is just down to personal preference. Catherine will wear a ring fashioned from a lump of Welsh gold owned by the Royal Family that has been smelted down. The couple have both had a hand in the design. This is the ring Prince Harry will carry and hand over in the traditional way.'

Another source added, with nose in the air and plums in his mouth, 'It is quite common for men in that strata of society not to wear a traditional wedding band. If they do, they tend to wear it with their family signet ring but William doesn't have one of those.'
