Kate's wedding ring made of Welsh gold
Given to Prince William by The Queen
Kate Middleton's wedding ring was fashioned by Welsh jewellers from a piece of Welsh gold given to Prince William by his grandmother The Queen, the palace said today. Prince Harry, younger brother of Prince William and best man, will carry the gold band into Westminster Abbey and pass it to the bridegroom, who will place it on the bride's finger during the wedding ceremony.
It has been made out of a piece of gold from the Clogau St David's mine at Bontddu in north Wales, the source for Royal Wedding Rings since the 1920s.The Queen gave the gold to Prince William shortly after Prince William and Kate announced their engagement in November.
