Kate Middleton’s rose gold ring has a hidden meaning nobody expects

Share

Long before Kate Middleton joined the royal family, it seemed like Prince William already made her ready for it. When the two met in 2001 and began dating soon after, the Duke of Cambridge gave her a ring. This band seemed to prepare her for her future role as the queen consort.

According to the LeVian CEO, Eddie LeVian, Prince William gave Kate Middleton a rose gold ring, which, reportedly, has a hidden meaning. Aside from sealing their love, it also has a different significance that has something to do with her royal role.

The rose gold band

“This beautiful, delicate ring is understated in style,” LeVian told Express. “But, the very personal message hidden within it from a future King makes it an enormously romantic royal jewel.”

The ring in question is a Victorian rose gold band full of pearls and garnets. It also featured both of their birthstones, which signified their bond and intertwined destiny. The future king gave it to his then-girlfriend when they were still at St Andrews University.

“Pearls are a June birthstone – William was born in June – and they symbolize love, purity, humility, and innocence,” LeVian added. “Garnets are the birthstone for January when Kate was born. It signifies protection and … promote confidence and mental clarity.

Kate Middleton wore the ring at her graduation in 2005, which marked not only her achievement but a new life with Prince William. When the two became a thing, the Duchess of Cambridge probably knew her future responsibilities for the royal family. It also showed his commitment to his then-future wife.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s future

Before they got married, the Cambridges had two breakups in their seven-year relationship. This even earned Kate Middleton her “Waity Katie” nickname.

But in October 2010, Prince William finally popped the question and asked for Kate Middleton’s hand for marriage. According to Mirror Online, the second in line to the throne made sure that his proposal would be romantically unforgettable.

They first traveled around the world before they headed at Lake Rutunndu in Kenya. Royal expert Katie Nicholl revealed the prince booked a log cabin for their stay and spent the day fishing. Although it went unsuccessfully, the proposal turned successful.

When they returned home, Prince William took Kate Middleton out onto the veranda. Here, he got down on his knee and popped the question. Less than a year after, they finally tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in 2011.
