She has a thin, plain, yellow gold band.

It’s a simple yellow gold band.  I remember Prince William had trouble getting it on her finger

(yes I woke up at 5 am to watch the wedding!)

@GroovyHippieChick:  Ha, I watched it live too, I was so excited I never went to bed because I was afraid I would fall asleep and miss it. I made my Fiance watch it too, he was understandably not as psyched.

@Miss Toadstool:  Also, I think they said it might be a hair too small because there was only a little bit of the right type of gold left.

It’s made from Welsh Clogau gold. A gift of it was given to King George Vl and it’s been used ever since though it has been topped up a few times with gifts from other welsh mines. It’s a cute little modern tradition at only 89 years old though. Theres no actual difference between welsh gold and other gold it’s just that the lump of gold was a gift to the family so it makes a nice tradition 🙂

Am I allowed to be a bit of a jerk and correct you on the “Princess Kate” thing.  I know people refer to her as that but it REALLY bugs me.

She is the Duchess of Cambridge, and that is all.

She will only assume the title “Princess” when the Queen dies and Prince Charles becomes King.  Then Prince William (or when he’s with his wife: the Duke of Cambridge) will assume the title Prince of Wales and Catherine will be Princess of Wales (like her mother-in-law Diana).  William is a “prince” because he is directly descended from the monach. The exception is Zara and Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s and Mark Phillip’s children, they do not have a title because Mark rejected an earldom.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (Prince Charles’s wife), will not become Queen Consort as Diana would have if Charles and she had remained married because she is divorced.  Instead she will assume the title Princess Consort; in the same way that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, is Prince Consort.  Her divorce is also the reason she never became Princess of Wales.

Sorry to threadjack. I am fond of a traditional yellow-gold band 🙂

When William is King Katherine could be Queen Consort. A married couple providing they are both eligable can reign together. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert pretty much did at her insistance even though he couldn’t be “King” in title as “King” falls above Queen in the heirachy and as such King Consort is not allowed, only Prince Consort. Also he married her as a foreigner. Effectively they ruled together though and he was a massive positive influence on society particularly with his dedication to the poor. I think the last time we had a “proper” King and Queen was William and Mary who unusually had equal status in being both intrinsicaly royal.

@ladyartichoke: &@Anardana: : I just wanted to say thank you for the lesson.  I’m a huge history buff but the way the modern royal family titles work is a mystery to me and probably to a lot of americans.
