The British Royal wedding ain’t traditional, that’s for sure. In stead of the carriage the couple’s ride is a limo and the fairytale wedding is celebrated in an intimate setting. But now it has been hinted that the wedding rings are being made of Fairtrade gold. The purveyor of wedding rings to the royal household is one of the 20 certified Fairtrade jewellers and they’re hoping for an order. “It would be wonderful if Prince William and Kate agreed to it.” Will Kate, becoming the new people’s Princess, set a trend?
