Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third wedding anniversary is on April 29, so of course the Duke and Duchess are celebrating with romantic keepsakes! Before their tour of New Zealand and Australia, Prince William presented his princess with an exquisite Cartier watch — with a sapphire embedded to match her Princess Diana engagement ring. So romantic!
Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Anniversary Gifts
Wow. Can you believe it’s been three years since the Royal Wedding?
That’s right — April 29 marks Prince William and Kate’s third wedding anniversary!
Prince William proved he is truly a romantic at heart when he presented the stunning Kate with her gorgeous anniversary gift just days before leaving for their three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand, this according to Daily Mail.
The $5,950.00 Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch that Kate received also had a sapphire stone embedded it, so it perfectly matches her engagement ring. The ring and it’s sapphire stone has a very special meaning to Prince William, as it once belonged to his late mother, Princess Diana.
Surely these timeless gifts show Kate that she means the world to Prince William. In fact, she wore her new watch every single day during their tour down under.
Princess Diana Also Wore A Cartier Watch
It seems as if good taste runs in the family.
Prince William’s mother not only wore the Cartier engagement ring that has now been passed onto Kate, but she also wore her own watch from the same brand.
Princess Diana also had a Cartier watch engraved for Prince William as a birthday gift one year, so the brand has a particular significance for him.
Obviously Prince William means to keep the brand close to his family’s heart as he continues to gift Kate with items similar to those his mother once wore.
