Prince William passes on Princess Diana's Engagement ring

Prince William has made it public that the ring Kate Middleton will be wearing during their engagement is in fact, his mother’s. Princess Diana picked out her own engagement ring in 1981 and includes fourteen diamonds which sit around a single, large sapphire.

Prince William’s engagement has made headlines across the world as well as internet social media websites, including Twitter.  The news appears to have been distributed in a royal tweet from the Clarence House: "The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton - www.princeofwales.gov.uk"

Prince William states the reason for his choice was “my way of making sure my mother didn't miss out on today and the excitement”. Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 28, are due to wed in 2011 though spring or summer has not yet been decided. Although the couple has been reportedly on and off again since they met eight years ago, Prince William states, “the time is right now. We are very, very happy.”
