Princess Kate Middleton is fueling speculation about her marriage to Prince William after she did not wear either her wedding or engagement ring in a new photo.

“Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months,” Kate, 42, wrote via Instagram on Sunday, March 10. “Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day.”

The social media upload featured a new photo of Kate and her three children — Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5 — which husband William, 41, snapped earlier this year. In the pic, Kate wraps her arms around Charlotte and Louis while George stands behind the trio.

The Princess of Wales is dressed casually in a pair of blue jeans and an olive jacket as she sits down in a chair. Eagle-eyed social media users noticed that she’s not wearing her Welsh gold wedding band or the sapphire engagement ring she received in 2010 when William proposed. (While William does not typically wear a wedding ring, Kate has long worn her rings to public events and during family portraits.)
