As long as Wills keeps wanting to be her tampon, and not some other woman's tampon, they'll be fine.

Masterdog: Congrats Subby, I've been looking for a decent joke about this news all day. Definite HOTW.

You might as well keep looking, as this definitely wasn't a decent joke.

Even some of the comments here continue to display this solemn respect for this chick that I have always found completely mystifying.
Why the fascination, especially in the US, for a useless and outdated family monarchy, that isn't even very interesting.
As someone once said (Maher?) she was a lovely housewife who did some fine charity work. Nothing more to it, really.

All I want to know is will the wedding day be a public holiday?

If that is the case, I'm interested.

Otherwise, I couldn't give a rat's ass.

PocketBillionaire: So, in a few years when she dumps him, she gets to keep the ring, right? Ought to be worth a bit at auction, I would think. Crank out a couple of kids, just in case, and be set for life so long as she can block out his 'O' face.

Legally speaking, if it was truly and only an engagement ring, she would have to give it back. If he did a cheapy shister thing like make it an engagement/birthday present, she gets to keep it no matter what because it was a gift.

/protip to you guys out there

Jim_Callahan: Bondith: It's less "bedazzle you with riches" and more "watch me do a keg stand" pull this injured hiker out of a ravine.

FTFY

I'm not a loyal monarchist, but I can respect William for applying himself to learn a difficult job that provides a vital service.

That arse-faced sod he calls a younger brother, on the other hand...

Wasn't William the one that was deployed to Afghanistan?


Harry, the younger one, was in Afghanistan and apparently at least somewhat in harms way when he was there.

William apparently does Search and Rescue - not the easiest job anwywhere off the UK's coast.

NeoKhan: memilkisyummy: Legally speaking

IANAL but I have read of court cases where if the ring is given only as part of the promise to marry (in the sense that it is not a true gift but a symbolic representation of the promise), the guy has been able to get it back (I think the woman needs to end the engagement, though). If it doubles as a non-marriage-related gift, sayonara. Point is, by not coupling it to a birthday/Christmas/Valentine's Day/other, the guy at least might have a legal leg to stand on if she goes and dumps him a month later and won't return the ring.

Findlaw to the rescue (new window)!

Seems as though you have luck of the draw depending on which interpretation of gift law your judge subscribes to regarding engagement rings, but there seems to be some case precedent (new window) that engagement rings are conditional gifts that only 'fully vest' upon the completion of the marriage.

OK I know i'm going to get flamed for this but to the submitter that wrote this: f*ck you, seriosusly f*ck you. If you acheive 1% of what Lady Di did in her live then you will be doing great. She had huge riches and a great life she could have done nothing to help others but she didn't she worked for those with less than her. I think that means joking about her is just pathetic. Also if you want to go down another route there is some major evidence she was killed by Mossad/M16 for intending to marrying a Muslim.

Pert: "Will you marry me?"
"Yes"
"Great - I've picked my mother's ring."
"Ewwwww gross!....I'm having second thoughts already......"


Someone posted in one of my forums while watching the press conference. The bright beam on Kate's face dimmed noticeably when the press brought up the ring. I get why William did it, and the sentiment is lovely, but... yeah. Every girl wants her own special engagement ring, usually. But for Kate, especially when this particular ring casts such a long shadow from the grave, it's gotta be tough.

I did feel bad for them at one point... some press corps asshole commented, "Obviously you know what love is," hearkening back to Charles' stupid, thoughtless comment thirty years ago. Gadzooks.

Best of luck to you two anyhow.

I notice that we are NOT asking the most important question of all that was asked of his mother: Is she a virgin? One of the huge issues of his mom was that Charles had to marry a Virgin, which is why he could not have Camilla in the first place.

Not that it's going to keep her from wearing white in what is certain to be another 'wedding of the century' although perhaps with the feelings about the royals going the way they are, these two love birds might have to soft-pedal it a bit.

In the US it depends on the State (it can be an unconditional gift), Jolly Ol' England is probably different, but that's moot if they do get married. If she seals the deal then it's hers to keep or sell (unless, again there is some local law that makes it something like the crown jewels - no, not those family jewels, the other ones.)

I dont understand your last comment but I'm not trolling. I understand your comment about the ring but it is really a great honor. She will have her own wedding ring and it is a symbol of great love for her as well as his mother. If you imagine how bad it must have been for a young kid like him and his brother to have the pain of divorce and newspapers and then the death it must have been a total nightmare. I think he is a strong guy so is Harry and I hope it is a marriage that lasts.
