Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, will celebrate the 13th wedding anniversary of her marriage to Prince William in June 2024. When Kate and William married 13 years ago, Diana's engagement ring was given to Kate and she has worn it ever since.

"DIANA'S GLOOMY FATE"

New claim from Angelina Jolie! New claim from Angelina Jolie!

Kate has been compared to Princess Diana ever since she put on the ring and became the eldest daughter-in-law of the royal family.

It is believed that what she wears, how she looks, how she behaves and even what she says are all traces of Diana.

The fact that the ring is always on her finger reveals the claims that Kate lives with the ghost of Princess Diana and cannot get rid of her curse.

TRANSFORMED FROM BROOCH

Although beautiful, the story of this sapphire jewel is full of gloom. The jewel is an oval sapphire ring set with 18 diamonds surrounded by 14 carats of white gold. According to Vogue magazine, the ring was made by transforming a brooch that Prince Albert asked the jeweler Garrard to make for his future wife Queen Victoria in 1840. The brooch belonged to the late Queen and inspired King Charles when he chose an engagement ring for Princess Diana in 1981.

In its early days, the ring was estimated to be worth £28,000. The current price has risen to 390 thousand pounds. Princess Kate of Wales first wore the stunning sapphire ring in November 2010, when she and William announced their engagement a few months before her wedding. Princess Diana's divorce from Charles and her devastating death in 1997 put a negative spin on the ring.

PRINCESS DIANA AND SAPPHIRE RING

The first owner of the ring was Princess Diana, who died in a tragic car accident. Prince Charles gave the ring to Diana when he proposed in 1981. The Princess was repeatedly photographed wearing the stunning piece after the wedding. After her death in 1997, the ring passed into the hands of her sons.

The royal family has revealed that she willed the ring to her two sons in the hope that they would one day gift it to their future spouses.

DIANA'S WILL COMES TRUE

Diana's will became a reality in 2010 when William proposed to Kate using arguably the most iconic ring in the royal family.

"I would like to allocate all my jewelry to the share of my sons, so that in due course their husbands may also receive it," Princess Diana's will reads.

WHY IS THE RING THOUGHT TO BE CURSED?

Kate Middleton's sapphire engagement ring has accompanied several bizarre rumors about her relationship with Prince William. Since the jewelry originally belonged to Princess Diana, it allegedly bears traces of Diana's unhappy marriage to Charles.

Caught arguing several times in 2023, Kate and Prince William may have inherited a cursed ring that led to marital quarrels and relationship dissatisfaction.
