I don’t think it’s presumptious.  That’s how the royal family works.  It’s always been that way.

William chose this ring out of his mom’ possessions and harry chose something else and this was long ago. so the ring was already his to give

Umm, as a younger sibling, if he just got first dibs I’d be pretty heartbroken. But if they worked it out between themselves, then good for them. 🙂

This is how it worked in my FI’s family actually.  My Future Brother-In-Law gave their grandmother’s ring to someone some years ago.  It didn’t work out though and as a result, his mom decided that my Fiance could have the diamond reset for me.  I don’t think it should naturally go to the first born, I just think that’s how it usually works out.  I guess in my head it’d be the first to get engaged/want to use the ring.  Or if there’s a daughter I think she should have the option to inherit it (but then which daughter gets the ring if there are multiple daughters will be an issue).

Hmm, somehow I think Harry is used to the firstborn unfairness with the line to the throne thing and all.  But I think it’s a little typical for the first born to get things like this, at least from what I’ve seen.

I believe elliestan is correct, from what I’ve read anyway. Harry actually picked that ring to keep out of his mom’s possessions, but he was happy to give it to William for Kate to wear. If Harry was only happy to give his brother the ring, I think that makes it even more special and touching.

Um, there was actually an interview with both William and Harry about this. They both agreed whoever got married first would get to use it. I think it’s a bit presumptuous of you to immediately assume that they did not discuss or agree on it. Why do you automatically assume WIlliam took it away from Harry?

in royal families rthe first born is heir and the second born is spare. they are there just incase something happens to the first born. its only fitting that william get the ring. doesn’t the same thing happen in regular life? first born gets handexd down family herlooms?

No? I think it’s silly to assume this is some kind of scandal. Isn’t it completely possible they worked this out before?
