Kate Middleton made a sweet tribute to her children as she wore a necklace with their initials on during a visit to a prison in Surrey on Tuesday.
The Princess of Wales, 41, opted for the £1,070 gold necklace engraved engraved with ‘G C L’ for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The mother-of-three paired the Daniella Draper chain with an Alexander McQueen suit as she visited HMP High Down.
She was previously seen wearing the look in 2012 for a visit to Cardiff.
The product is described as a Personalised Gold Midnight Moon Necklace and is described as ‘universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolise immortality, eternity and enlightenment.’

In February 2014, she was photographed proudly wearing a new necklace that carried a disc engraved with Prince George’s full name – George Alexander Louis – and a heart-shaped charm inscribed with the letter ‘W’ for her husband William.
And though it was a precious token of love, it was hardly one of the Crown jewels, as it was a gift from her sister Pippa which was on sale for £89 from an online boutique.
The personal style of necklace is also loved by Kate’s sister-in-law Meghan Markle, who wore a dainty initial ‘A’ necklace as a nod to her then two-month-old son Archie when she made a surprise appearance at Wimbledon in July 2019.
Meghan also wore a gold necklace adorned with the letters ‘H’ and ‘A’ while watching her friend Serena Williams compete against Canadian Bianca Andreescu in the US tennis championship – and was pictured fiddling with her necklace as the game heated up.
The Princess of Wales was spotted with a mischievous grin on her face as she was searched by a prison guard and a drug detection dog during her royal visit to a male prison in Surrey.
Kate Middleton, who had her fingers strapped following a trampolining injury, sat on a wooden chair as the black Labrador called Penny and security team checked her as she entered HMP High Down.
A Kensington Palace spokesman confirmed to the Daily Mail that the hurt finger were ‘a small injury, nothing serious’, adding that the Princess had not broken anything.
Looking typically stylish, the mother-of-three opted for a favourite blue Alexander McQueen and grinned broadly as she arrived for the visit to the prison near Sutton that helps those in the criminal justice system recover from addiction.

Despite the injury from her Windsor garden, she smiled through the pain as she greeted staff and parents of former offenders with a handshake.
As she went through the Category C prison entrance, that welcomes 2,000 visitors a month, the Princess was shown what Penny’s reaction is like when something is found on a person.
Kate, who is a patron of the addiction charity the Forward Trust, told staff: ‘Amazing. It’s incredible, it’s very calm and controlled. It’s not intimidating.’
During the visit, that comes ahead of Addiction Awareness Week in October, she met serving prisoners who are receiving addiction support from the prison.
The Princess went on to visit the institution’s award winning restaurant, The Clink, that helps inmates become trained in hospitality, where she complimented staff on their ‘delicious looking food’ and met families working with the Forward Trust.
It comes as Kate’s brother-in-law Prince Harry enjoyed watching Invictus Games events in Dusseldorf today as he prepares for his wife Meghan to join him later on.
