Kate Middleton honored her children while announcing a new project that explores early childhood development.
On June 18, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a video to launch The Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood Development, an organization working to circumvent the “rising rate of poor mental health” by investing in the first five years of a child’s life.
“The Center hopes to raise awareness of why the first five years of life are just so important for our future life outcomes and what we can do as a society to embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier or mentally healthy, more nurturing society,” Middleton shared in a Twitter video. “By working together, my hope is that we can change the way we think about early childhood and transform lives for generations to come. Because I truly believe big change starts small.”
During her address, Kate Middleton wore yet another piece of jewelry that features the initials of her three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The Trio Diamond Midnight Moon Necklace by British designer Daniella Draper retails for $1300 and is available to engrave with up to three characters. “The Duchess of Cambridge is an incredible role model—I look up to her as a young woman and a mother,” Draper told People. “Seeing her wearing one of my designs was a very proud moment. Everyone in the workshop thinks it’s just amazing. It’s good morale!”
This is not the first time Middleton has worn her children’s initials close to her heart. Back in September 2020, the Duchess wore a three-pendant necklace adorned with a G, C, and L to a meetup with parents to discuss how families were holding up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
