Have you ever heard about the cursed iconic piece of British royal jewelry? People are quickly terrified by the word, especially when it is associated with an inanimate object.
We read about them in fairytales and pirate movies, but some people believe that real-life objects, including jewels from a royal family, can have negative energy surrounding them and even be cursed.
When you think of the British royal family, specifically the Crown Jewels, you probably think of the famed Sapphirering. Originally worn by the late Princess Diana, Kate Middletonnow wears the engagement ringon a daily basis – and fans believe the jewelryis cursed.
Haunted jewels are not a new concept for royalty, and several gems in the British family have been labeled "haunted," according to the Court Jeweller.
After a controversial account on Twitter called @PopTingz uploaded a post of Kate and Prince William with the caption, "Prince William and Kate Middleton are allegedly having marital issues after the couple have been seen arguing and mad at each other on several occasions,” Royal fans went insane.
In fact, many of them are blaming Diana's engagement ring for the supposed turmoil, dubbing it "cursed." If you go to the royal side of Twitter, you'll probably see tweets claiming this.
One Twitter usersaid Kate “got the curse ring anyway,” and another user added, “Someone else thinks the same about that ring as me! Why would you want to give your mother’s engagement ring to your girlfriend when that marriage ended in divorce? Hardly a ‘happy’ ring, is it? Found it very weird. Still do.”
These users aren't the only ones that believe this. According to Twitter, many people believe the renowned ring is "cursed."
The Untold Story of the Cursed Crown Jewel That the Royal Family Refuses to Give Back
But first, some background on that specific ring: Diana purchased the ring in 1981 from royal jeweler Garrard's catalog. She wore it during her marriage to King Charles III, which was widely regarded as an unpleasant one, and the two divorced in 1996.
While Prince Harry inherited the ring, he purportedly gave it to William in order for him to propose to Kate, and Kate has now worn it for well over a decade.
What makes Kate cursed? Many admirers believe that because of allegations about William reportedly having an affair with her friend Rose Hanbury, the ring has a curse that would bring an unhappy marriage to whoever wears it.
When you can't keep up with all the royal feuds and headlines, add a curse to the mix.
