Kate Middleton wore a special necklace to pay tribute to her three children in a video to announce the launch of her own Centre for Early Childhood.
The Duchess of Cambridge today (June 18) opened the Royal Foundation's "landmark" centre to raise awareness of the importance of early years and help "transform lives".
And in the video shared on the Cambridge's official Twitter account, Kate is seen adding a personal touch to keep her children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three – close to her heart.
She wears a gold necklace with a round pendant engraved with the initials G, C and L above three little diamond stars.
The £1,300 jewellery piece is the Gold Midnight Moon necklace by British designer Daniella Draper.
The beaming mum-of-three sends a message in the video, saying: "My own journey into understanding the importance of early childhood actually started with adults and not with children.
"It was about prevention. I want to understand what more we can do to help prevent some of today's toughest social challenges and what more we could do to help with the rising rates of poor mental health."
The Duchess spoke to scientists and researchers and found the first five years of early childhood are important for future life outcomes.
"That is why today I'm launching the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, working closely with others," she said.
"My hope is we can change together about early childhood and transform lives for generations to come because I truly believe, big change starts small."
On Friday, Kate was joined by husband Prince William, Prince Charles, Camilla and the Queen for a G7 summit reception and spoke with world leaders before the event took place.
She was seen wearing a stunning three-strand pearl bracelet, designed by Nigel Milne, that once belonged to Princess Diana.
Royal fans believed she was paying tribute to William's late mother, who would have turned 60 on July 1.
