Unlike his brother Prince William, Prince Harry will wear a wedding ring. Very few men in the monarchy have chosen to wear a wedding ring, including the princes’ grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the groom will wear a platinum band with a textured finish from Cleave and Co. Meghan Markle‘s wedding ring, also from that jeweler, will be a Welsh gold band presented by Queen Elizabeth.



In contrast to other royal men, Prince Charles does wear a wedding band, under a signet ring on the little finger of his left hand.

The Queen Mother began the tradition of royal wedding rings being made from Welsh gold after the precious metal was used to make her wedding band when she married in 1923.
