With the announcement today that Prince William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton are finally engaged after a long courtship, speculation has already begun to build about what kind of Engagement Ring the future Queen of England will wear in the lead up to what will be perhaps the key high society wedding in 2011.
Whether Ms Middleton will have much say in the matter of choosing her engagement ring is up for grabs. The British Royal Family, like any other monarchy in the world, are notoriously keen on protocol and past Engagement Rings for key members of the family have been hand-made and sourced from one supplier.
Perhaps tradition will be broken this time however. Prince William has been keen in the past to showcase himself as a modern man living in a modern world and letting his future wife choose her engagement ring from wherever and whatever she pleases would be sign of his acceptance to bring the British Royal Family into the 21st century. He would probably gain a few more admirers from his already bulging female fanbase too.
Of course the lucky princess-to-be will be able to choose from a wide variety of Rings at the number one ring comparison site in the UK, but here at Rings.org.uk we are realistic and suspect that the Royals don’t use price comparison sites like us mere mortals!
