One eagle-eyed fan wrote: “There is a ring on one picture but not on the rest hope it’s a engagement ring?”

Another added: “Engagement ring? Not on earlier in the day but on later in the evening!”

However, representatives for the couple have confirmed The Sun that Kate and Rio aren’t engaged and are “really happy as they are.”

A friend of the pair added: “Kate laughed when she saw what was being said about the ring but understands why people might think Rio had asked her to marry him.

They explained that the ring actually belonged to a friend's of Kate’s, adding: “During the night, a friend had slipped off one of their rings and asked Kate to hold onto it for a couple of minutes. To keep it safe she just put it on her finger before she gave it back.

“She didn’t even think about which one she’d put it on! She’s so happy with Rio right now and everything is going great with them.”

Hats away guys, false alarm!
