Princess Diana's Ring

Now In Kate's Hands

11/16/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prince William has revealed that he proposed to Kate Middleton with his mom's engagement ring -- the same one Princess Di stopped wearing after Charles cheated on her ... which in turn, ruined the marriage, embarrassed the royals and tore the family apart. Bling Bling!!

Kate Middleton Engagement Ring
Diana famously picked out the £30,000 ring -- which consisted of 14 diamonds surrounding a sapphire -- back in 1981. They divorced in 1996.

So we gotta ask ...

I think Diana would be flattered that her future daughter in law would be wearing that ring...she was an extremely beautiful lady...what a way to honor her!!!

That ring was given to Harry, not William, when Diana died. Are you sure you have the facts correct? The article says nothing about Harry giving it up. I wish the ring would have gone to Diana's first granddaughter to keep it in her bloodline.

these rings are always passed down through the royal family it's a custom.

I think it's an honor for Kate to receive that beautiful ring. He loves her enough that he is entrusting her with it. That is a beautiful sentiment and no doubt she is wearing it proudly. She seems like a lovely woman who will do right by Princess Diana and Prince William.

I had read that after Diana died the two boys were told to choose one item of hers that they wanted. Harry chose the engagement ring and William chose her watch. Did Harry give up the ring to William so he could give it to Kate? It is a lovely ring, but I think Kate should have a new ring of her own, and just wear Diana's ring for special occasions.

Goodness, TMZ! It's an heirloom.

It was his beloved mother's ring. He doesn't care about her marriage failing, but that a woman he loves will wear it.

@Anne: Why would they give the ring to Harry? William is Diane and Charles' first born and second in line to the thrown. Royals are very traditional and everyone knows if anything, the ring would have gone to William, first born.
