In many areas of Africa, revolutionary groups have taken over some of the diamond mines using proceeds to finance their illegal operations. These diamonds are referred to as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. The United Nations instituted a system of controlling diamonds that were taken from these groups by insisting that all of the legal diamonds must be accompanied by a certificate of sale as they moved through the system but the system has not worked well. Today, these blood diamonds total less than 2% of the overall market share.
And, not all male royals are seen without a ring on their fingers. According to a report by the BBC, Prince William’s father, Prince Charles wears a wedding ring as a mark of his second marriage to the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. Prince Andrew, Duke of York also wore one before his divorce and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, still has one on his finger.
So, next time, don’t judge the marital status of a male by the absence of ring on his finger and always remember that wearing one or not wearing one can be a personal choice unaffected by the societal norms. By now, you know who in the royal family wears a ring and who doesn’t but do you also know about the fact that there’s a tradition according to which the young boys belonging to the upper class, aristocracy and royals are supposed to wear shorts and not doing so is considered ”suburban”. And if you have guessed that this is why Prince George is always seen in shorts, give yourself a pat on the back because you are absolutely right. So, in this case, it is not his choice but the tradition.
