From her fashion choices to her mannerisms, everyone can see a little bit of Princess Diana in Kate Middleton. However, a new detail about Kate’s engagement ring from Diana’s estate shows that she was truly meant to be a royal icon.

On April 28, a fan uploaded now-viral video to Instagram by the name of “all.thats.pretty” talking about her conversation with Kate while she was visiting for the 60th anniversary of Central Beacons Mountain Rescue. The fan captioned the video, per DailyMail, saying, “Kate talking about Diana yesterday… & her engagement ring was exactly the same size.”

In the video, Kate says, “And it was exactly the same size. It is very special. What an honour to be able to wear it.”

She also made a rare comment about the late Diana, saying, “I never met her, sadly,” and that she would’ve been a “brilliant grandmother.” When asked if the family misses Diana, Kate quickly said, “So much. The family miss her every day.”

So not only did Kate make an incredibly rare comment on Diana, but she just dropped a huge secret about the iconic ring! For those that don’t know, this ring is one of the most well-known pieces of British royal jewelry ever. While most engagement rings in the family are custom-made, William gave Kate the ring his mother wore. (How sweet!)

Fun fact: Diana’s ring originally belonged to Prince Harry, but he reportedly gave it to William when he told him he was going to propose to Kate. Diana’s butler Paul Burrell said in The Diana Story, “Harry said to [William]: ‘Wouldn’t it be fitting if she had mummy’s ring? Then one day, that ring will be sat on the throne of England.’”

We can’t get over the fact that no alterations or resizing needed to be done with the ring. It truly shows that Kate was destined to become Princess of Wales, like her late mother-in-law!
