And we kind of love it.
But it wasn’t the A-list royal wedding guests or the royal after party that really got the world talking. Instead it was the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s choice of rings, choosing Cleave and Company to make their bands.
While the company is a traditional one to go for, Prince Harry broke royal tradition in his choice of material.
While Meghan’s ring was fashioned from a piece of Welsh Gold gifted to her by the Queen, Prince Harry chose a Platinum Band with a textured finish.
And that’s not the only royal custom that Harry has bypassed when choosing his wedding ring, with the very fact that he’s wearing one straying from tradition.
To everyone’s surprise however, it was reported that Harry would be breaking royal tradition, with a source claiming that the groom wants to wear a wedding band.
‘It is simply down to personal preference,’ a royal aide told the Daily Mail.
Well, that’s lovely.
