Kate Middleton 'getting her wedding ring resized'


April 13, 2011 - London

Bride-to-be Kate Middleton is having her engagement ring made smaller because she is terrified it will fall off as she marries William.

She has apparently asked Royal jewellers to fit two beads inside the 32million pounds sapphire band - once worn by the late Princess Diana - to stop it slipping.

Middleton, who seems to be slimming for her big day, has reluctantly accepted the dazzling sapphire and diamond band is too big for her size H finger.

And she has asked Crown jewellers G Collins and Sons to attach two tiny platinum beads, dubbed "speed bumps," to the inside of the bottom of the ring.

That will make it a size I, one notch up from Kate's finger width to ensure it remains comfortable.

"The band was turning. Kate absolutely adores it and didn't want to cause a fuss," the Sun quoted a Royal source as saying.

"A bride's worst nightmare is looking down and seeing her ring has fallen off. One can only imagine how this is magnified when you are marrying the future King of England."

The band, valued at 32million pounds because of its history, was Princess Diana's engagement ring.

It was given to Middleton by William to ensure his mother would be part of their special occasion on April 29.
