This little-known fact about Queen Elizabeth’s wedding ring is blowing our mind (in the best way possible).
In the new book Prince Philip: A Portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh, royal biographer Ingrid Seward shared details about the couple’s 1947 nuptials at Westminster Abbey in London. During the ceremony, Prince Philip reportedly gave the monarch a gold ring that’s inscribed with a private message.
“She never takes it off and inside the ring is an inscription,” she wrote, according to People magazine. “No one knows what it says, other than the engraver, the Queen and her husband.”
You’re probably wondering, Well, can we have a hint?! But unfortunately, that’s a question only Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip and the jeweler can—and probably won’t—answer.
