Prince William gifts girlfriend Kate fake diamond earrings for ChristmasDecember 22nd, 2007 - 5:15 pm ICT by admin
London, Dec 22 (ANI): British royal Prince William has bought a rather cheeky Christmas gift for his girlfriend Kate Middleton - a pair of fake diamond earrings.
The mega-rich royal picked up the bling during a last-minute shopping trip.
William, who was assisted by a female friend, a personal shopper and his protection officers, spent more than an hour at Selfridges on Londons Oxford Street.
The 25-year-old boycotted exclusive jewellery and chose the white gold earrings with cubic zirconia stones by British designer Dinny Hall instead.
Had the earrings been set with real diamonds, they would have cost 10,000 pounds. But the prince had to shell out just 410 pounds for the fake diamond piece.
William walked round with a female friend and looked at lots of earrings for Kate. But whenever he picked out something, his friend would say, No, William - I dont think so, The Sun quoted a Selfridges source, as saying.
Like any other bloke, he didnt seem to know what he wanted and spent time at lots of different counters, the source added.
Kate, who is with her family in Barbados for Christmas, is expected to spend New Year with William. (ANI)
