Kate Middleton, 38, and Prince William, 37, are the parents of three children. The Duchess of Cambridge has worn many pieces of eye-catching and expensive jewellery over the years, including a new jewel with a sweet link to her family and children.
The piece of jewellery made a nod to her children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
On the pendant, the letters ‘G’, ‘C’ and ‘L’ were written for their initials.
It sat on a long chain which may have shown the significance of the piece to Kate, according to Claire Adler, jewellery specialist and founder of Claire Adler Luxury PR.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, she said: “Initial pendants are a super personal style of accessory and are often worn as a way to celebrate one’s children or other beloved family members.
“A longer necklace allows the wearer to see and remember the pendant and its symbolism at all times.
“This pendant worn by Kate is the gold diamond midnight moon necklace from Daniella Draper, personalised with the initials of Princess Kate’s three children, with G, C and L proudly referring to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
“The moon charm on the pendant represents immortality, eternity and enlightenment and it is made with 100 percent recycled nine carat gold, which suggests that sustainability is important to Kate, as well as supporting independent, family run British brands.”
As well as giving a nod to her own family, the royal shows her support for others by choosing the independent brand.
With a necklace that is so obviously personal, the Duchess of Cambridge may have been trying to express her individuality, Claire continued.
This is also not the first time Kate has worn a piece that featured personal initials.
She was given a charm bracelet from Camilla, Duchess of Cambridge which featured the letter ‘C’, for both of their names.
“Initial necklaces are increasingly popular because they are a way of expressing individuality,” the expert continued.
“Also they can carry meaning for the wearer and potentially also a person who gifts the jewel.
“For example, Kate received a gold initial charm bracelet with a C, and her official monogram imprinted above it, as a gift from her mother in law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
“A variety of initial pendants can be found at well-loved jewellery brands including Annoushka, Edge of Ember, Missoma, Monica Vinader and Jennifer Meyer.”
