Royal Matrimony-dom: Kate Middleton Says “I Don’t” To Vow To Obey Prince William

- By Bossip Staff

Prince William and Kate Middleton

Gotta love it, while Prince William has plenty of loyal subjects in the UK his future bride is already letting it be known that she’ll neither serve nor obey!

The royal wedding may be steeped in tradition, but when Kate marries her Prince at Westminster Abbey this Friday she’s skipping out on some old-fashioned vows. Specifically, Middleton has had phrases involving “obey” and “serve” cut from the ceremony.

Princess Diana also avoided telling Prince Charles she would obey, but don’t take that as a sign of a doomed marriage, since both Princess Margaret and Princess Anne vowed to obey their husbands and then ended up in the divorce courts.

The Prince is also making some of his preferences known as well — namely his decision not to wear a ring.

While modern married men usually wear a wedding band, Prince William will follow other male royals and aristocrats who have no wedding ring on their left fingers.

While he is widely viewed as a modern royal who slowly adopted the lifestyle of ordinary people he’s keeping it royal in this case.

The palace spokesman has been quoted saying “It is a personal preference and William has decided not wear one.”

Apparently Prince William doesn’t like jewelry and has settled the issue with his fiancee who reportedly “accepted the decision of the Prince happily.” Ironically, it’s kind of a family tradition since William’s grandfather, Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh and and other royals have skipped out on wearing a wedding band.

William’s father, Prince Charles and uncle, Prince Edward, wore wedding rings on their left fingers. The Prince of Wales placed it under his signet ring on his left little finger.

While Kate Middleton will be presented with a ring made of a lump of Welsh Gold owned by the royal family, which will be carried by Prince Harry to the altar (royal wedding etiquette dictates that rings should be carried by a Best Man to the altar and not by a young ring bearer), Prince William won’t have one.

Ladies would you be okay with your husband not wearing a wedding band? We guess in this case, it’s not like the whole world won’t already know he’s married!

Guys, would you feel some kind of way if your future wife didn’t want to vow to obey you?

    “Princess Diana also avoided telling Prince Charles she would obey”…yeah, and princess Diana is the same princess who had an affair throughout her marriage with James Hewitt…loyalty and fidelity must of been taken out her vows as well and just forgot to inform her husband before the “i do’s” smh

    • wisdom

      So what. Prince Charles was having affairs too. She was young and he tried to control her, obviously she was unhappy. She had to also deal with his mother, who is the Queen Bi*ch. Not that it really matters, but obeys their marriage vows anyway?

    • G.M.

      ur right, barely anybody honors their marriage vows anymore, hence the reason marriage should be abolished and if Diana was unhappy she should of got a divorce, but she wanted the lifestyle that comes with being the wife of a rich, powerful man/prince…basically, what ur sayin is if a person is unhappy in a relationship, cheat…if thats the case women need to stop b1tchin about men cheating on them cuz obviously their not dogs, just unhappy

    • wisdom

      Men are dogs. It takes a lot for a woman to cheat than a man. Men look for a reason to cheat. Anyway, on getting a divorce, sometimes it’s not that easy. You have to think about your kids,financial investments etc. If you love your spouse you should at least go to marriage counseling.

  • oh snap

    Like Prince Charles didn’t have an affair while married!

  • jabgar00

    Man this is white people history who cares.. We have hundreds of Kings and Queens in africa.. Unfortanely for us we have been cut off from our mother country we know nothing about were we come from or our history. We are the only race of people to have this effect brought on us. But you learn white history since 1st grade

  • DeepThinker

    Everybody with a pulse on this planet knows Prince William is off the market so if I were Kate I could care less if he wore a ring or not. Also if a person is not honoring their vows it does not make any difference if they wear their rings or not. It’s funny that Kate is leaving that “obey/serve” part out of her vows and no one(MEN)seem to really be bothered by it, but if a BLACK WOMAN did that. There would be al kinds of articles and protests and excuses to bash BW.

    • ElGee

      I’ll co-sign the first part of your comment about the issue of wearing rings, but I can’t ride with that not wanting obey/serve in the vows, no matter what the color of the woman happens to be. I would think that black women catch more drama because they tend to have more attitude w/ telling the man what they’re going to do or not do, but usually, it’s after she’s already married. Some cases prove otherwise, but 9/10 times if a brother knew that his potential wife was going to flip the script after the vows, there would have never been a marriage. Personally, I wouldn’t have her telling me what she will & won’t submit to, because you will expect me to be loyal, faithful, a provider & protector for you on all fronts, but with that type of attitude, you only want the benefits of what the marriage can bring without ALL that comes with it as it relates to your role as a wife. That sense of entitlement is Garbology 101. Proverbs 31:10-31 shows how SELFLESS the woman is & all that she does is to make the FAMILY better. This attitude is the total opposite. It says “Give me credit when he does good, but blame HIM if it doesn’t work.” You can’t have it both ways…..

  • resurrected

    Well then she also better not have children as well because the royals claim them instantly and back in the old days youe child was taken away from you by the age of two so that they can understand what it mean to be king or queen. They did not want them to be attached to people not even there parents.

    The Royal Family are Nazi descendants- British Israelite Society fraud perpetrators.

  • mary

    The prince is a public figure so his martial status is known, but for everyone else(not in the public eye) I think that wearing a band is neccessary because it symbol that announces to the world that you are committed to some.

  • Bella

    She did divorce him. He never loved her and he tricked her into marrying him. He was always with that woman he is married to now. He just swept Diana off her feet to please the queen. By the time she realized this she already had his children and try to work things out for them but she had enough of the stress and pain. He was never faithful to her throughout the relationship. He always just wanted to be with that older woman.

  • Juliemango

    Of course she wouldnt obey/serve – they have servants for that. Re: the royal brides gold ring made of royal gold, must be some secrets behind that particular tradition!!!
