It's all in the details for Kate Middleton, who wore a sweet necklace with charms representing each of her children.
- The Duchess of Cambridge's latest charity project for The Royal Foundation focuses on early childhood development.
- Kate added a personal touch to her outfit with a custom necklace featuring her children's initials.
- In other royal news, Prince William to face this unexpected wake-up call when he becomes King—and the Queen’s experienced it too.
Kate Middleton announced her biggest royal project yet, via an official video on social media, the "early years" foundation. During her announcement, there was one detail we couldn't take our eyes off: Kate wasn't just talking about helping children, she was displaying her love for her own three.
She wore a custom-made gold necklace, featuring a gold disc engraved with the first initials of her children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The delicate necklace was designed by jewelry brand Daniella Draper and retails for $1,900.
"Today I’m proud to be launching The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood — let’s embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier, more mentally healthy, and more nurturing society," she said on Twitter.

The necklace is not the only piece of jewelry she has that features her children in some way. In September, Kate sported a different necklace with her children's initials etched onto it, but this time each letter was on a separate charm. This May, at the end of the Royal Tour of Scotland she undertook with Prince William, she wore yet another necklace featuring three charms: a letter G, a letter C and a letter L.
All the necklaces have been widely copied. Kate may well be hoping her new project will be as influential.
"Our first five years lay important foundations for our future selves," she said in the video. "This period is when we first learn to manage our emotions and impulses, to care and to empathize, and thus ultimately to establish healthy relationships with ourselves and others."
