People have been wondering why Prince William, a married man, never seems to wear a wedding ring.


A Palace official has revealed that the 35-year-old royal doesn't wear a wedding ring simply because of personal preference, as reported by Time.

Prince William's decision is not something of a tradition in the Royal Family. Nearly all the male royals wear a wedding ring.

The Queen's other half, the Duke of Edinburgh, doesn't wear one, however.

Prince William's father, the Prince of Wales, wear a gold wedding ring. Prince Charles is married to his second wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.


His uncle, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, also wear a wedding ring on his pinky before he and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson divorced.

Royal fans had looked forward to seeing Prince William's wedding ring, but his decision not to wear on was revealed even before the wedding happened.

"It was something the couple discussed but Prince William isn't one for jewelry," Time quoted the unnamed Palace aide as saying.


"He doesn't even wear a signet ring," he added.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, who married in April 2011, welcomed their third child - a boy - on Monday, April 23.

The royal couple are already parents to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

William and Kate's newest child, who is Queen Elizabeth II's sixth great-grandchild, is now fifth in line to the British throne.

Royal observers are now eager to find out if Prince Harry, William's younger brother, will wear a wedding ring or not.


Harry is engaged to Suits actres, Meghan Markle. The couple are set to marry on May 19 at Windsor Castle, outside London.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, who got engaged in Kenya, married at Westminster Abbey.

Kate had been one of William's university flatmates. They began dating in 2003. Prior to their engagement, their relationship had become a subject of tabloid speculation.
