The Kensington Palace shared photographs of Prince William and Kate Middleton recently. The Duchess of Cambridge was noticed not wearing her trademark sapphire engagement ring.


As shown in the picture posted to the couple's joint Instagram account, William and Kate are working from home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

"In recent weeks," the caption reads, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organisations and patronages to understand the issues they are facing during this difficult time."

Kate's image shows her wearing a pink coral suit while talking to the phone. She accessorizes herself with just a wedding ring, which originally belonged to Princess Diana. In any case, it's for a super-relatable reason, as reported by Yahoo!.

The 38-year-old is not the only public figure who may have chosen to remove their ring amid coronavirus fears, as per Hello!.

According to experts, with all the hand-washing to shield yourself from coronavirus, it makes sense to either remove the jewelry when you wash up. You can leave them off altogether as well.



Germs can live under rings. However, it's not clear how it affects any transmission. Kate has to meet and connect with numerous individuals, so this makes intuitive sense.

"In a situation where we are in extraordinary measures to limit Covid-19 transmission," Rochelle Walensky told USA Today, "I think removal of rings/jewellery when washing hands — or perhaps limiting their wear altogether right now — represents a wise move forward."

This isn't the first time Kate decided not to wear her engagement ring.



Walensky is the chief of the division of infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital. Meanwhile, this isn't the first time Kate decided not to wear her engagement ring, as reported by PEOPLE.

In January, she slipped off her sparklers in adherence to the policy on minimal jewelry of Evelina London Children's Hospital.


It is advised to expel jewelry before entering the hospital since she would have to cleanse her hands thoroughly before visiting the wards and treatment areas.

Kate also opted to leave the engagement ring behind while opening the Great Ormond Street Hospital's Mittal Children's Medical Centre in January 2018.

The stunning accessory consists of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-karat white gold, according to PEOPLE.
