Speaking in a recent video on his YouTube channel, royal expert Neil Sean confirmed the real reason the Duke of Cambridge doesn’t wear a wedding ring.

He also adds that William thinks it is “very distracting”.

The royal expert also added that royals are often seen shaking hands with different people on their outings and although ‘lots of people are being tested’ someone ‘could be quick enough to get the ring “.
