Now, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton’s ring has trumped the Duchess of Cornwall’s.

A new study by jewellery retailers EST1897 has analysed the most expensive engagement rings of all time.

The research includes the most iconic royal rings, which have all been valued by a professional. How do they compare the jewellery of Kate and Meghan, Diana and Camilla and Pippa and Beatrice?

Lady Diana’s sapphire oval cut ring is also worth more than the one given to Prince Charles’ second wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Kate’s oval cut sapphire ring is perhaps the most iconic royal engagement ring and is also the most expensive, this report claims.

Purchased for £28,000 in 1981, the ring is now said to be worth £390,000.

The ring was originally given to Lady Diana when she got engaged to Prince Charles in 1981.

Prince Phillip designed the ring himself, making use of diamonds taken from a tiara belonging to his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg.
