PRINCE WILLIAM: RING WON’T BE GRACING PRINCE WILLIAM’S FINGER WHEN HE MARRIES KATE!

PRINCE William won’t be wearing a wedding ring!
The British royal will marry fiancee Kate Middleton on April 29 and is going to eschew the modern-day tradition of men wearing wedding bands.
“There is only going to be one ring, in accordance with the couple’s wishes,” a palace spokesperson at the Palce told People magazine.
Middleton will have a wedding band, and it will be made from Welsh gold.
A tiny amount of gold mined from the Welsh mountains (not far from where the couple will start their married life on Anglesey,) has been kept in the royal vaults since it was originally presented to William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
The Queen has “given a piece of the gold that has been in the family for many years to Prince William as a gift,” a palace source says.
Recent reports claimed Elton John is planning to throw a party for William and Kate.
The Rocket Man singer — who was a close friend of William’s mother, the late Princess Diana — and his partner David Furnish have planned the party, to which David and Victoria Beckham will also be invited to thank the young couple for their invitation to their April 29 nuptials.
“Elton loves entertaining and hosting people at his home,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper.
“He is touring America at the moment but he flies between there and the UK and comes to his Old Windsor home whenever a short break in his schedule allows.
“He has wanted to invite Kate and William to dinner for a while now to thank them for his wedding invitation. He always puts on the most incredible feasts fit for royalty anyway so they should feel right at home.
“The Beckhams will be invited but it depends on whether his club will let him travel.”
