What a dazzling gesture! Prince William has already proved that he is a doting father to baby George, but now he’s showing his love to Kate by having a sparkling commemorative gift created just for her — and trust us, she won’t be disappointed!
Prince William and Kate Middleton have been loosely following royal tradition before and after the birth of Prince George, but William has chosen to follow another tradition by getting a personal post-birth jewelry gift for Kate — just like Prince Charles did for Princess Diana!
Prince William’s Gift To Kate Middleton: A Royal Push Present
To commemorate the birth of their first baby, William plans to customize a personal, loving gift for Kate, which is reportedly going to be a brooch. Not just any brooch — a member of his inner circle told The Daily Express it will include a fancy diamond!
William has been giving this a lot of thought for a long time. He’s got lots of ideas from studying history of art at university and decided on a pink diamond as a centerpiece because it is pretty and feminine. It will be a thank you present to Kate.
Not a bad thank you for giving birth to the heir of the British throne!
While he has reportedly enlisted the help of the Queen Elizabeth‘s jewelers, William also wants to be a part of the designing of the brooch. With the way he has been such a hands-on dad, it’s no surprise he wants to take part in the design of such a special gift.
We can’t wait to see what the final product looks like!
Prince William Following Royal Tradition With Gift-Giving
The thoughtful gift giving is part of royal tradition, as Charles did the same thing for Diana after the birth of William with a gold medallion and gold “W” charm.
William originally thought about giving Kate another piece of his mother’s jewelry collection, but as she already wears Diana’s gorgeous engagement ring, William decided personalizing the gift specifically for Kate would be more appropriate. How cute!
The pink diamond he decided on for Kate’s gift also coincidentally follows royal tradition. The Queen has one of the finest uncut pink diamonds in the world, which she coincidentally often wears in a brooch. It wasn’t given to her be Prince Philip, but rather as a wedding gift from a Canadian geologist, as explained by the Daily Express.
Whether or not the gift were to follow royal tradition, a thank you for birthing the newest heir to the throne is definitely worthy of a nice diamond gift. Good call, William!
Do YOU think William should be creating a personalized gift for Kate, HollyMoms? Or would it be more appropriate to give her another family heirloom?
