Another way the Duchess of Cambridge has honored the late princess is by wearing a necklace gifted to her from her sister, Pippa Middleton. When Prince George was born, Middleton’s sibling gave her a gold charm necklace. One of the charms was a heart, which had a “W” for William’s name engraved on it. The other circle charm has the name “George Alexander Louis” for their son engraved on it. The necklace is similar to what Prince Charles gave Diana after William was born.

“Upon the birth of Prince William in 1982, Prince Charles gave Diana the gift of a gold pendant engraved their new son’s name, which she always wore close to her heart,” the website of British jeweler Merci Maman states. “In 2013, Pippa Middleton continued this family tradition by giving her sister Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, our Personalized Duchess Necklace to celebrate the birth of Prince George.”
