Prince William Gives Kate Middleton the Ring His Cheating Dad Once Gave His Deceased Mum
Tradition is very important to royals! As such, Prince William has given his betrothed, the lovely (albeit middle-class -- which actually makes us like her more) Kate Middleton, a big honking sapphire surrounded by diamonds that, actually, was the very engagement ring Prince Charles once presented Lady Di. How romantic and...er...ever so slightly creepy? Does this bode well? Oh, what do we know, we're just tacky Americans -- our traditions only go back, like, 200 years! In other news, the engagement was first announced by the royal home the Clarence House on Twitter. Mazel tov! [via People]
