Prince William does not plan to wear a wedding ring after his marriage to Kate Middleton, Palace officials say.
They say this is the couple's personal choice.
A spokeswoman who spoke on condition of anonymity because of palace policy says Middleton plans to wear a wedding ring made of Welsh gold.
The use of Welsh gold in royal wedding bands is a longstanding tradition.
Officials say details about the design of Middleton's wedding ring, and the source of the actual Welsh gold used to fashion it, will be released before the wedding on April 29.
There is still no word about the design of Middleton's wedding dress, or about the menus and wine selection for the two receptions that will follow the ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
