Believe it or not, but it’s been almost a decade since Kate Middleton married Prince William. And in the intervening years, Kate’s life has certainly been eventful. She’s become a mother to three children, for one, and has also undertaken her fair share of charitable and diplomatic duties. But that work hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the Queen saw fit to give Kate a very special gift that coincided with the eighth anniversary of the duchess’ wedding.
Naturally, Kate would be rather tricky to get an anniversary gift for if you weren’t actually the Queen herself. As the Duchess of Cambridge, you see, she likely has access to most of the material goods that a person could possibly want. And even before she married William, she came from an affluent background.
