Engagement rings are important and precious. Since it is an important piece of jewelry, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, did not wear her sapphire engagement ring during an outing for one valid reason.


During her visit to the Evelina Children's Hospital, she appeared clean and neat on her Dolce & Gabbana tweed suit. No heavy pieces of jewelry, as reported by InStyle.

The fans and some spectators of the Duchess have nothing to worry about her public appearance. Middleton has a legitimate reason behind her simple look.

Middleton purposefully left her engagement ring at home because of the policy set by the hospital. The facility has recommended her and other visitors not to wear jewelry within their place.

The Duchess left her white gold diamond eternity band behind, too. She only wore her gold wedding band by the time she entered the hospital.

"According to People, due to the need to thoroughly cleanse one's hands before touring the facility, guests are encouraged not to wear jewelry," the InStyle said.



The engagement ring was made out of a diamond-studded 12-carat sapphire engagement ring. This piece has belonged to Prince William's mother, the late Princess Diana.

This was not the first time Middleton left her ring. According to InStyle, she removes her engagement ring from time to time, depending on the theme of her future events.

Middleton opted for fewer pieces of jewelry in visiting a hospital.



"She routinely removes the iconic piece, which formerly belonged to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, before visiting hospitals," the InStyle stated.

Middleton opted for fewer pieces of jewelry in visiting a hospital. Apart from the hospital policy, she wanted to be hands-on in assisting a workshop with the children inside the place.


The creative workshop was in coordination with the National Portrait Gallery's Hospital Programme. Middleton was there to witness how the arts are beneficial to the children's health, aside from medicines, as reported by People.

The Duchess has a soft spot for children, wherein she toured around the place to check more about their health status. She has appeared in several public engagements in relation to the welfare of the children.

Last year, Kate, who has been a fashion icon since she became part of the Royal Family, joined a beauty tutorial and storyboard masterclass demonstration with kids from Malvern Primary School.

She didn't only greet her fans, but she also assisted with a hairdo, as shown in a video posted by the Kensington Palace on Twitter.
