During a recent state visit to Spain, where she and Prince William attended a state banquet hosted by the King and Queen, Kate proudly wore the tiara that Diana was given by the Queen on her wedding day in 1981.

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.

But one of her personal favorite items may be a simple gold necklace adorned with three charms.

Johnson has since been arrested by the police, and there's enough evidence there that cops have charged him with rape. The female is identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe to protect her identity.

Honouring family tradition, Pippa gave her a custom-made necklace.

The owner of Merci Maman has said that Pippa is a regular customer at the store, and she sent a thank you note after the special necklace was created.

London designer Merci expanded on the similarities in a post on her blog, writing: "Prince Charles gave Diana the gift of a gold pendant engraved with their new son's name, which she always wore close to her heart".

The navy initially said the sub was "found sailing" south of Copenhagen , but Mr Damgaard later said the 40-ton, 60ft-long submarine had sunk.

While the brand confirmed that Duchess Kate's necklace was engraved with Prince George's name, it is unconfirmed whether or not Princess Charlotte, 2, was added to the nameplate. The charm is inscribed with "William". The royal, 35, famously received the 18-carat oval sapphire ring surrounded by 14 diamonds originally worn by Princess Diana from Prince William upon his proposal, but it turns out she also references the Princess of Wales with a small and subtle necklace that was gifted to her by younger sister, Pippa Middleton.

The jeweler now sells "The Duchess Necklace" and variations that can be personalized on its website.
