It may be hailed as the wedding of the year but there is one thing that will be missing when Prince William marries Kate Middleton at the end of April - and that is a wedding ring for the groom.
St James' Palace has said the Prince will place a band on his bride's finger during the Westminster Abbey ceremony - but she will not place one on his hand in return.

BBC Breakfast spoke to etiquette expert Liz Brewer and personal friend of Camilla Parker Bowles, Broderick Munro-Wilson.
