What gives, Wills? I’ve been bombarded with reports that the King of England-to-be will (gasp!) NOT be wearing a royal wedding band.
Kate Middleton, of course, will be putting the pedal to the metal with a Welsh gold band bequeathed by the Queen, but her famous fiance is rejecting the most hallowed of bridal traditions for no other reason than – he just doesn’t have a taste for jewelry.
Yeah, neither does most of the warm-blooded male population, but they suck it up and wear the universal symbol for ‘I’m taken’ just the same. Just sayin’.
“It was something the couple discussed, but Prince William isn’t one for jewelry,” a St. James Palace aid tells the Daily Mail. “It really is just down to personal preference.”
It’s a bold decision for any groom to make, royal or no. Even Will’s father, Charles, wears a wedding band beneath his signet ring. But according to insiders, the Prince has Kate’s blessing.
What do you guys think of William’s wedding band balk? Is it OK for guys (any guy – not just the most famous groom on the planet) to take a pass on the wedding band tradition? Or is it all’s fair in love and ring fingers? Thoughts?
