Believe it or not, it’s been almost a decade since Kate Middleton married Prince William. In the years since then, she’s become a mother to three children and has also undertaken charitable and diplomatic work. And the Queen – always a hard worker herself – has appeared to have taken notice.
Kate would be rather a hard person to get an anniversary gift for if you weren’t actually the Queen herself. As Duchess of Cambridge, she likely has access to most of the material goods a person could possibly want. And even before she married Prince William, her family were very affluent.
The Queen naturally has more wealth than even Kate and William. And so she can hand out jewels and treasures whenever she sees fit. But for the eighth wedding anniversary of Kate and William, she decided to give the Duchess something extremely special. And it served as a sign of the close relationship between them.
