Kate Middleton Just Wore Another Necklace That Honors Her Three Children

Kate Middleton honored her children while announcing a new project that explores early childhood development. 

On June 18, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a video to launch The Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood Development,  an organization working to circumvent the “rising rate of poor mental health” by investing in the first five years of a child’s life.

“The Center hopes to raise awareness of why the first five years of life are just so important for our future life outcomes and what we can do as a society to embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier or mentally healthy, more nurturing society,” Middleton shared in a Twitter video. “By working together, my hope is that we can change the way we think about early childhood and transform lives for generations to come. Because I truly believe big change starts small.”

During her address, Kate Middleton wore yet another piece of jewelry that features the initials of her three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. 

The Trio Diamond Midnight Moon Necklace by British designer Daniella Draper retails for $1300 and is available to engrave with up to three characters.  “The Duchess of Cambridge is an incredible role model—I look up to her as a young woman and a mother,” Draper told People. “Seeing her wearing one of my designs was a very proud moment. Everyone in the workshop thinks it’s just amazing. It’s good morale!”

This is not the first time Middleton has worn her children’s initials close to her heart. Back in September 2020, the Duchess wore a three-pendant necklace adorned with a G, C, and L to a meetup with parents to discuss how families were holding up during the COVID-19 pandemic

More recently, Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing an elegant pearl bracelet from her late mother-in-law’s collection to the G-7 Summit on June 11. Clearly, the Duchess is sentimental when it comes to her jewelry collection and we love to see it.

Dwayne Johnson Reveals ‘Weird’ Way He Coped During Pandemic Isolation

The last year has been hard on all of us. While we all experienced the pandemic differently, we all certainly experienced it and we all found different ways of coping with the incredibly unusual experience. Some people watched everything they could on Netflix while furloughed from work. Some buried themselves in doing work from home. Dwayne Johnson couldn’t go out and make movies like he used to, but the actor says that one thing that helped him work through quarantine mentally was that even though he had nowhere to go, he acted each morning like he did.

Jack Dylan Grazer Has An Awesome Idea For A Disney Parks Ride Based on Luca

17-year-old Jack Dylan Grazer was thinking of the idea on the spot, and honestly, I’m sold. What’s lovely about the movie Luca is you want to live in the atmosphere already, so the idea of a full-fledged ride based on the movie would be delightful. Perhaps it would best fit in Epcot in Orlando, Florida in the Italian Pavilion. The movie’s Guilia, played by newcomer Emma Berman, also shared her thoughts on Luca in the Disney parks:

Naomi Osaka Has Withdrawn From Wimbledon: ‘She Will Be Ready for the Olympics’

Just a few days after Naomi Osaka took a stand to protect her mental health, the four-time Grand Slam winner has dropped out of the 2021 French Open, also known as Roland Garros. Here’s exactly what went down.

Naomi Osaka announced she would not participate in press at the French Open.

On May 27, the tennis star explained her decision in an Instagram post, which has since been deleted. “I’m writing this to say I’m not going to do any press during Roland Garros,” she wrote, per British Vogue. “I’ve often felt that people have no regard for athletes’ mental health and this rings true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one.”

“We’re often sat there and asked questions that we’ve been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I’m just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me,” the 23-year-old continued, likening questions about losses to “kicking a person while they’re down.” 

She added, “I’ve watched many clips of athletes breaking down after a loss in the press room and I know you have as well.”

Venus Williams replied, “Girl, do you. Your life is yours to live!”

Osaka was fined $15,000 by all four Grand Slam tournaments.

After making good on her promise not to speak to the press after her first-round win on May 30, all four Grand Slam tournaments—Roland Garros, Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open—released a joint statement

“Naomi Osaka today chose not to honour her contractual media obligations. The Roland-Garros referee has therefore issued her a $15,000 fine, in keeping with article III H. of the Code of Conduct,” they wrote. “The mental health of players competing in our tournaments and on the Tours is of the utmost importance to the Grand Slams.”

Despite that pledge, the organizations insisted that the fine was a matter of fairness to other players. “We want to underline that rules are in place to ensure all players are treated exactly the same, no matter their stature, beliefs, or achievement,” read the statement. “As a sport there is nothing more important than ensuring no player has an unfair advantage over another, which unfortunately is the case in this situation if one player refuses to dedicate time to participate in media commitments while the others all honor their commitments.”

Alex Rodriguez Has Reportedly ‘Come to Terms’ With His Split From Jennifer Lopez

However, on March 13, Lopez and Rodriguez release a statement that they are still together. “We are working through some things,” Lopez and Rodriguez said in a joint statement, which was obtained by People

“She’s working in the Dominican Republic and he’s in Miami, so it’s tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID,” a source added. “But they want to try to stay together.”

The pair further commented on the rumors on their own. On March 13, Rodriguez told paparazzi “I’m not single,” according to a video obtained by TMZ. Meanwhile, on March 14, J.Lo included headlines about their supposed breakup in a new TikTok video. “I ain’t worried bout a blog,” Saweetie raps in the background. “Every lie off your lips get me views.”

April 2021: The couple confirmed in a statement to Today that they’ve broken up. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” they said. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.” 

Machine Gun Kelly Reportedly Wants to Start a Family With Megan Fox

July 2020: In their first joint interview, Fox says she felt a deep connection between them by day two of filming. “I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame,” she says on Lala Kent and Randall Emmett’s podcast, Give Them Lala … With Randall, per Entertainment Tonight. “Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”

On July 28 the couple goes Instagram official. “Waited for eternity to find you again … 🔪💫❤️🔪,” Colson wrote on Instagram alongside a mirror selfie with Fox.

No dates for me. Probably ever.”

On September 23, Baker tells Howard Stern, that he “didn’t know what [true love] was until me and her made eye contact,” according to E!. “That’s when I was like, ‘Whoa.’”

Bop Shop: Songs From Remi Wolf, Peyton, Mila Jam, And More

Coin’s Rainbow Mixtape, a three-part EP series fused into one full-length effort, is in the running for the year’s best indie album, a powerfully written kaleidoscope of reflections on finding your way through love, loss, and your own meaning of life. It’s hard to pick the record’s standout moment, but “You Are the Traffic” feels like the one song that pulls it all together, a mellow realization that two people — maybe lovers, maybe friends, likely something in between — are forever connected, whether they’d prefer to be untangled or not. “What a mistake, how there’s no me without you,” singer Chase Lawrence confesses. Like the song itself, the line rings with a faint sliver of hope: Even in this misfortune, maybe the two can find a way out. —Terron Moore

In The Heights: What Fans Are Saying About Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Movie Musical

The conversation became amplified after The Root interviewed the cast about the gap in representation, pointing out that many of the Latinx actors in the film were light-skinned and white passing.
