Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wore the perfect accessory as she continued the rollout of her new “5 Questions on the Under 5s” initiative.

The duchess made a stop in Cardiff, Wales, at the Ely & Careau Children’s Centre Wednesday, as part of her continued work to put a spotlight on the all-important early years of a child’s life. All the while, the gold jewelry she sported around her neck paid tribute to the children she shares with husband Prince William.

The letters “GCL” were engraved on the simple-but-stunning piece — in honor of Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1 — and alongside the initials, the pendant featured three tiny stars.

And royal baby watchers, take note: The former Kate Middleton didn’t leave room for another letter to be added to the personalized Gold Midnight Moon necklace from designer Daniella Draper, which retails for £1,070 pounds (around $1,400 U.S.) online.

Just last year, the duchess told another admirer that the sight of a baby can still make her feel “very broody.” Perhaps a new necklace be in order someday?

If you're looking for a more affordable way to re-create the duchess's personalized necklace, Etsy customers have been loving this option that offers plenty of different fonts and colors to choose from.

But, of course, she’s not the only stylish royal to team up a fashionable look with a sweet mom-themed necklace. Her sister-in-law, the former Meghan Markle, has done that, too — more than once.

Back in February 2019, the Duchess of Sussex was spotted wearing a Jennifer Meyer necklace that read “mummy” while in New York City for her baby shower.

The Jennifer Meyer design goes for $850, though Etsy customers have been leaving rave reviews for this $18 option.
