Why does Prince William never wear a wedding ring? Here's what we know...
The Duke of Cambridge, 39, even channeled James Bond in a green velvet blazer and black turtleneck to London's Alexandra Palace.
But some fans were distracted by the fact the future king didn’t seem to be wearing a wedding ring.
Well, it turns out the Prince has never worn a band on his wedding finger for one very simple reason: he doesn’t like wearing jewellery.
While the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a ring since their wedding back in 2011, William chose to go ringless.
A Palace aide said at the time: “He’s not one for jewellery.
“He’s never worn any. He decided he didn’t want to wear one now. It’s all down to personal preference.”
And the Prince has also chosen not to wear a royal signet ring, unlike his dad Prince Charles who wears a ring with the Princes of Wales insignia on his little finger.
This comes after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary in April this year.
In the video, the family can be seen enjoying a walk on the beach and roasting marshmallows.
The royal couple wrote: "Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary.
"We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family. W & C."
Kate and William also marked their anniversary with two new portraits where they can be seen smiling at one another as them celebrate a decade of marriage.
