Happy Marriage Spread

On This Day

Ancient Greeks claimed the fourth finger contained the “vein of love” running straight to the heart. This is why engagement rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. The first recorded wedding rings, with the circles representing eternity, were from ancient Egypt.

Kate Middleton and Prince William were married on this day at Westminster Abbey in 2011. All of Britain and the world rejoiced at this fairy tale come true. Engaged on private holiday in Kenya, Prince William offered Kate the same engagement ring his father, Prince Charles, had given his mother, Princess Diana.
