Prince William gives Diana's ring to fiancee: officials
Britain's Prince William has given his fiancee Kate Middleton the engagement ring that belonged to his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, Clarence House said Tuesday.
The blue sapphire and diamond ring was given to Diana by William's father, Prince Charles, when they became engaged in February 1981. Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 and she was killed in a car crash in Paris the following year.
William and Middleton are due to give a photocall later Tuesday, hours after it was announced that they were engaged after an eight-year romance and will marry in London next year.
