KATE Middleton’s iconic sapphire engagement ring is one of the most beautiful and recognizable jewellery pieces in Britain.

But did you know that it belonged to Prince Harry after Diana’s death, and he actually gave it to Kate instead of waiting for his future wife Meghan Markle?

A new documentary has revealed that the Duchess of Sussex, 38, missed out on being the wearer of the spectacular £300,000 ring, as a “selfless” Prince Harry let his older brother use it for Kate.

In the new Amazon Prime documentary “The Diana Story”, Princess Di’s former butler Paul Burrell confirmed that the ring had belonged to Prince Harry.

When his mum tragically passed away in 1997, Prince Harry had been allowed to select his favourite pieces from her jewels.

Just before Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton in 2010, Prince Harry offered his brother the chance to use the precious item, in honour of their mum. The Sun reported

The engagement ring - consisting of a 12 carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire, surrounded by a halo of 14 solitaire diamonds - was given to Princess Diana in 1981 by Prince Charles.

Aside from looking absolutely breathtaking, the ring also marked one of Diana's first breaks from royal tradition, choosing the design from a catalogue rather than opting for a custom ring (as was the tradition).

In this sense, the jewellery piece represents both Diana's life and personality and, subsequently, holds strong significance for her sons.

The Express reports that, according to the Amazon Prime documentary The Diana Story, after Diana's passing in 1997 Harry and William were able to choose a momento of their mother's.

Paul Burrow explained that William chose Diana's Cartier watch, while Harry chose her engagement ring. As Harry's ring, the piece was destined for his future wife, Meghan Markle.

The story goes, however, that when Harry heard of William's plans to propose to Kate, he said "wouldn’t it be fitting if she had mummy’s ring?" and donated the piece. Cosmopolitan Reports.

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…
