  • What?

  • Three.

  • The future princess just got something wrong.

  • Why all the theories turned out to be false, and the real reason was quite sweet.

  • She put on Charles watch along with her own to support her other half and wish him good luck in the tournament.

  • Actually, Charles and Diana first met at a similar competitive circumstance on Lee.

  • He had been invited to the Spencer family's home for a hunt.

  • Theo to families had always been close.

  • And here she was four years later, standing near a polo field supporting her now fiance.

  • What's even cooler?

  • Young Lady Spencer had to wear something borrowed according to the popular tradition, however, Diana refused to wear the lovers, not tear offered by the queen.

  • Instead, she chose her family, Tierra, from the Earls of Spencer.

  • It might have broken Royal Family Protocol, but it was important for Diana to follow her own family's traditions, too.

  • This tear had been warned by Spencer family women before her.

  • As a Tierra, she liked to bend the rules and start new trends in other ways to, for example, women in the royal family are required to wear tights.

  • Diana did it her own way.

  • She wore different colored ones to match her outfits, which was a bit shocking for the monarchs.

  • But Harry gave the ring to his brother when William decided to propose to his future wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

  • The duchess still wears the ring to this day, but let's go back to that happy day in 1981 when young Diana had no idea what lay ahead in the future, when two watches on one wrist were a lucky charm for her and her future husband was her whole world.

  • The young noble wanted her marriage to Charles to be successful, and on her wedding day a few months later, she hoped to inspire a little more luck by sewing a golden horseshoe into her address.
