'I'm so proud of you'… Prince Charles sent Princess Diana a family signet ring and wrote her a touching note the night before they tied the knot but she still 'sobbed her eyes out'

In Andrew Morton's biography Diana: In Her Own Words, the late Princess of Wales is reported to have said: "I remember my husband being very tired – both of us were quite tired. Big day.

"He sent me a very nice signet ring the night before to Clarence House, with the Prince of Wales feathers on and a very nice card that said: 'I'm so proud of you and when you come up I'll be there at the altar for you tomorrow.

"'Just look 'em in the eye and knock 'em dead.'

"Great anticipation. Happiness because the crowds buoyed you up – I don't think I was happy."

She added: "We got married on Wednesday and on the Monday we had gone to St Paul's for our last rehearsal and that's when the camera lights were on full and a sense of what the day was going to be.

"And I sobbed my eyes out. Absolutely collapsed and I was collapsing because of all sorts of things.

"The Camilla thing rearing its head the whole way through our engagement and I was desperately trying to be mature about the situation but I didn't have the foundations to do it and I couldn't talk to anyone about it."

The situation was clearly overwhelming for Diana and did not bode well for the marriage, which ended  in 1996.

But it's not surprising that a member of the Royal Family chose a signet ring for his bride-to-be.

Charles, 69, sports one on his little finger, while his brother Prince Andrew wore a gold signet ring throughout his 10 year marriage to Sarah Ferguson.

Even Meghan Markle has taken to the trend, working an £85 Missoma piece during a royal engagement in Chichester, West Sussex last week.

In more royal news, Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas is likely to be invited to Princess Eugenie's wedding.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry put a 'two week' rule on their romance to make sure they could make it work long distance – but one thing became their 'enemy'.

And Prince Charles broke Princess Diana's heart when he said THIS to Camilla during a 'secret phone call'.
