Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially man and wife, and after months of waiting in anticipation of the bigger than big day, royal enthusiasts are finally taking the time to sit back and digest every aspect of the lavish event. And there’s one particularly impressive detail that has, so far, managed to slip under the radar… a certain push present!
Kate Middleton made a stunning appearance at the royal wedding on Saturday, May 19 in a creamy, pale-yellow, Alexander McQueen dress (a look we’ve seen from the master of recycled fashion three times previously!). She accessorized the outfit with a pretty floral headpiece, eggshell-colored pumps, and (as eagled-eyed fans have only now picked up) a massive new ring on her right hand.
The large citrine rock appears to be new to the beloved royal’s collection, and outlets are now speculating whether the sparkling gem was a push present from Prince William in celebration of their third child, Prince Louis, who was born on April 23.
Fittingly, the brilliant yellow-hued stone is actually symbolic of new life and energy. The push present — basically a gift a woman receives from her husband, partner, or father of her child after giving birth and enduring a never-ending hormonal rollercoaster — certainly follows a longstanding tradition for the royal couple.
Following the birth of Prince George in 2013, the Duchess received a diamond eternity ring from her adoring husband, while the 2015 birth of Princess Charlotte brought a new pair of green tourmaline and green amethyst oval drop earrings added to the royal mom’s glittering jewelry collection. Prince Louis was born at 11:01 a.m. on Monday, April 23, tipping the scales as the heaviest royal baby in 100 years weighing a very healthy 8lbs 7oz. He is fifth in line to the British throne.
Kensington Palace confirmed the Duchess was in labor at 08:23 a.m. in the morning, London time, via Twitter in a statement which read, “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning in the early stages of labor.”
“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge,” the message continued. A huge congratulations once again to whole happy new family-of-five on the safe arrival of their newest little prince!
