When Kate Middleton stepped out to visit the military’s Victoria Barracks earlier this week, we just couldn’t help but notice a shiny new accessory hanging from her wrist – a glittering gold charm bracelet.
The Duchess wore the very same item at Wimbledon just days later, where it emerged her new favourite piece of jewellery was emblazoned with two C’s.
Now it’s been revealed Kate’s bracelet was a special wedding gift from mother-in-law Camilla Parker-Bowles, who owns a very similar version herself.
The pretty linked bauble – being described as a symbol of Kate and Camilla’s friendship - features a dangling gold disc, emblazoned on either side with an elaborate letter C.

Kate’s curling royal monogram sits under a royal coronet, as is Camilla’s – though hers is surrounded by a circle.
Although Clarence House has confirmed the item was ‘a personal wedding gift,’ to Kate, they did not comment further on what they deemed ‘a private matter,’
Today the Duke and Duchess are Canada-bound, and left the country in a private jet earlier today, to begin their royal tour.
Yesterday officials revealed a brand new royal flag – personal to Kate and William – commission specially for their visit.
