In a new book titled Prince Philip: Revealed, royal biographer Ingrid Seward tells the story of the British monarch’s ring, revealing that the jewellery conceals a hidden message.

“At least Philip didn’t have the expense of a wedding ring, as the people of Wales supplied a nugget of Welsh gold from which the ring is made,” she wrote of Prince

Mystery of secret inscription on inside of Queen’s gold wedding ring

When it came to planning their royal wedding, Princess Elizabeth and her fiancé Prince Philip had a lot of big decisions to make.

At the time of their 1947 wedding, Britain was still recovering from the horrors of the Second World War, and King VI knew he had to be conscious about the budget for his daughter’s wedding.

Food, clothing, fuel and coal were still being rationed, and the original plan was for a budget occasion.
