In breaking Will/Kate news, CNN reports that Prince William will not wear a wedding band after he gets married, but Kate Middleton will, “in accordance with the couple’s wishes.”

At first, shock.

But then, realization…

It’s not like anyone in the entire world doesn’t know that Prince William will be married. No big secret there. So in terms of being transparent about his relationship status, it’s kind of a moot point.

On the other hand, it seems so…nontraditional. And for a royal, breaking tradition is unexpected. So, there’s that. But also, I suppose my hackles go up a bit in the same way that they go up about women wearing engagement rings and men not wearing them. One party is publicly spoken for, the other isn’t…it’s a fairly outdated concept.

At any rate, at the end of the day Will and Kate should do whatever Will and Kate want to do. But I’m curious, is this something you would consider doing?
