How Kate Middleton's 'George' necklace is a tribute to Princess Diana

Share

Over the years, she's worn some gorgeous pieces by Mappin & Webb, G. Collins & Sons, and Sonam Rabgye.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, 10 August, made an official statement that after she leaves the throne would pass the crown to her grandson William and his wife Kate Middleton.

The Merci Maman the Duchess necklace (which you can customize for your family members) is available in gold and silver at mercimamanboutique.com for $129. "Featuring a hand-engraved disc with the Prince's full name, a small boy charm and a heart engraved with a "W" to represent Prince William". Middleton is known for her parenting style which seeks to keep Prince George and Princess Charlotte as out of the spotlight as possible, yet the insider indicates that this will not be as simple when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ascend the throne. In addition to it being a timeless tribute to tradition, it also pays homage to the iconic Princess Diana. Diana's necklace involved a gold disc, as well (though hers had the word "William" written on it).

However, OK! reports that the present was even more sentimental than we might initially realise, because necklaces celebrating the first birth in the family appear to be something of a tradition - with Prince Charles giving Diana a similar keepsake when William was born in 1982. In this way, not only is Kate honoring the legacy that she will be carrying forward with her family, she's also honoring and paying respect to Princess Diana and the legacy she left behind.

On their website, Merci Maman say that mums can recreate Kate's necklace themselves in silver.

The necklace's start at $129 not including shipping - which isn't too pricey, to be honest.
