Unlike his brother Prince Harry, Prince William hasn't worn a wedding band on any of his recent Zoom calls to charities and hospitals...or ever. We were alerted to this fact after seeing the recent slew of flashback photos of the Duke of Cambridge's wedding to Kate Middleton posted to social media in honor of the couple's ninth wedding anniversary.
So we had to know, with the duke being such a family man (dad jokes and all), why hasn't he worn a wedding ring since his marriage to Kate on April 29, 2011?
The answer is pretty simple really. It's a royal tradition (and Harry is the rebel here, not William).
It was officially announced by St. James's Palace before their wedding at Westminster Abbey that Prince William wouldn't wear a wedding ring.
