It’s Over!

3rd May, 2011

There we are – two weeks of bank holidays, long weekends, Easter and one Royal Wedding are now behind us.

Now it’s back to reality and you can talk about those things which we thought but didn’t speak of in order not to ruin the festive atmosphere.

The one thing I would love to know is if the concept of a pre-nuptial agreement has reached the Royal Family. Did Kate (sorry, that would now be HRH Duchess of Cambridge) have to sign one? And if so, did it state things like ‘in case of divorce can’t keep royal title’ or ‘has no right on Royal property.’

Alas, in absence of answer to those questions I give you one more list with regards to wedding and marriage:

Top Ten Divorce Settlements as published by the Telegraph (

10 – John and Beverly Charman – $95 million

9 – Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving – $100 million

8 – Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey – $150 million

7 – Michael and Juanita Jordan – $168 million

6 – John ‘Jack’ Welch and Jan Beasley – $180 million

5 – Michael and Maya Polsky – $184 million

4 – Roman and Irina Abramovich – $300 million

3 – Craig and Wendy McCaw – $460 million

2 – Adnan and Soraya Khashoggi – $874 million

1 – Rupert and Anny Murdock – $1.7 billion

The question is if it is coincident that none of them featured on the list of the most expensive wedding/engagement ring.

Now there is  some research I would like to undertake: Is the value of the engagement ring proportional to the years of marriage…?
