All eyes were on Meghan Markle (and her Givenchy wedding dress) during the royal wedding, but we may have snuck in a couple glances at the guests' outfits as well. One of the guests in question was, of course, fellow duchess and sister-in-law to the bride Kate Middleton. For the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's big day, Middleton opted for a pale yellow Alexander McQueen dress that she's worn twice before, paired with a matching cream floral hat. While some viewers weren't too happy about how almost-white her dress was, other royal wedding fans were fixated on another detail: her ring.

As the U.K.'s Express reported, the duchess of Cambridge debuted a massive citrine stone on her right ring finger. According to Express, the ring is new, and with its appearance falling so close to Prince Louis's April 23 birth, it's fueling speculation that it may be a "push present" from Prince William.

In case you didn't know, a "push present" is basically a "thank you for carrying our baby for 10 months, for going through childbirth, enduring the sleepless nights and hormonal roller-coaster present," as Vogue explains. While many people, such as Mila Kunis, get a ring, others, like (possibly) Kylie Jenner, get Ferraris.

Kate herself, naturally, has not commented on the origins of her ring, but we wouldn't be too surprised if it did turn out to be a "push present" from Prince William. According to People, the royal wedding was Middleton's first public appearance after leaving the hospital in a red dress and heels (!) post-birth, and she's still on maternity leave from her royal duties.
