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 ...

Harvey please don't turn this story into trash, I'd rather read a love story than trash with Mel and Oksana any day. Diana was the most photographed person in the world in her day and that was long before the internet-please try to keep this story in perspective.

Ahhh, I stopped caring about the royal family after that horrid Camilla joined the group. Kate Middleton is a lovely intelligent woman who suddenly makes the family interesting again. A beautiful ring on a beautiful lady. Best wishes!!!

The Prince and Kate are at wedlock's gate,
But the cursed ring is the malevolent thing,
That sure and certain will bedamn the fate of Will.

IT IS NOT THE SAME RING! LOOK AT THE PICTURES AGAIN...KATE'S IS ROUND WITH OBVIOUS GOLD PRONGS AROUND THE STONE...DIANA'S IS OVAL WITHOUT THE OBVIOUS PRONGS. EITHER THE STONE WAS CUT DOWN TO CIRCULAR FOR SOME REASON OR IT IS NOT THE SAME RING...LOOK AGAIN!

I can't believe how some people are upset over the ring. It was his MOTHER'S ring. Seriously - using heirloom rings for engagements or marriages is nothing new. People should just get over it. It's a gorgeous ring, and there's nothing wrong with Kate wearing it. I'm sure Diana would be thrilled.

it's not a cursed ring and btw Harvey Queen Elizabeth's husband is not king he, if William were to become King Kate would be Queen, however you can not be called a King unless it's in your bloodline you can't marry into that title, you stay a Prince. Research your facts, plus you know how he ended up with Camille? It's because of paps chasing Princess Di, until her car sadly crashed and killed her, it would only be cursed because of s*** like the paps,LIKE YOU!

I will never understand why so many people think Diana was a saint. It is awful the way she died,but she chose to marry a jerk like Charles and chose to have affairs and ended up with a shady creep. It is a shame for her poor kid's. That ring looks like it belongs on an old lady.

Seems to me Ms. Middleton has learned the expectations of royalty behavior and lifestyle. She's had 8 years to decide if this is really the life she wants. Neither Princess Diana nor Sarah Ferguson were this exposed to what it would really be like, they weren't prepared for what lie ahead. Princess Diana was only 19 or 20 when they announced their engagement. I think Prince William understands only too well what demands were made upon his mother and how she was not prepared for this life. He has shown great wisdom in allowing Ms. Middleton the advantage of experiencing what life as a royal would be for her, even if she wasn't always as patient. He must have much love and respect for her.

So if this marriage ends in divorce does that mean she gets to keep the ring ?
