Amen,” according to the ceremony’s Order of Service.

As per reports by People magazine, it is not an uncommon thing for men in the royal family to go without wearing wedding rings. Prince William, who wed in 2011, does not wear a wedding ring.

“There is only going to be one ring, in accordance with the couple’s wishes,” a spokesperson told the media outlet around the royal’s 2011 wedding. Fans of the royal family would also remember how Prince William struggled to slip the ring on Kate's finger, while she calmly smiled through the whole thing.

Although Prince William looked somewhat fazed and worried while trying to put the ring on, Kate smiled, staying ever so calm before William successfully slid the ring on.

As for Prince Harry, he broke royal tradition too, but in a different way. Harry chose to go for a platinum band, while his bride, Meghan Markle, got a ring made of Welsh gold, which was originally supposed to be used to make Harry's ring.

The royal family has been using pure Welsh gold for their wedding rings, and the tradition has stayed with the family ever since the Queen Mother’s wedding in 1923. The Queen was then gifted a kilogram of Clogau gold on her 60th birthday. This gold too was mined from the Welsh mountains and has remained in the royal vaults ever since.

“The tradition of using Welsh gold for the royal wedding rings is one that we hope to see continue when Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle,” Ben Roberts, Managing Director of Clogau, previously told the media outlet.
