Harry’s father, the Prince of Wales uniquely chooses to wear his gold wedding band on his pinky finger, alongside his treasured signet ring.

And in contrast, the Duke of Cambridge doesn’t wear a wedding ring, like his late great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. The decision was said to be down to a personal preference.  

Prince Harry was joined by his cousin, Princess Eugenie, at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Eugenie’s husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their one-year-old son, August, have reportedly joined her in the US, but they and Harry’s wife Meghan were not present at the Super Bowl.
