The Countess of Wessex just gamed up her roll neck with the most heartfelt family accessory

The royal's jewellery has a seriously personal touch…

On Thursday, the Countess of Wessex had a busy day of royal appointments, which started at the London Stock Exchange. In photographs that appeared on the Royal Family's Twitter page, Prince Edward's wife wore a simple skirt and a classic black roll neck jumper, which she accessorised with gold jewellery. Not just any old gold jewellery either, but a beautiful initial necklace that had an 'E' for her husband, an 'L' for her daughter - Lady Louise Windsor - and a 'J' for her son, James, Viscount Severn. The 55-year-old has actually worn the necklace before - but it also featured a shell charm, which she has since removed. How lovely!

Sophie made her black roll-neck extra special with personal gold jewellery

Another royal that has added a personal touch to her outfit recently is the Duchess of Cambridge. Last week, on a visit to Cardiff,  Kate kept her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, close to her heart wearing a beautiful gold disc necklace featuring their initials.

Meghan wore a necklace that featured Harry's starsign in Vancouver

Whilst Prince Harry was in London on a royal engagement, across the pond Meghan headed to a Vancouver Women's shelter, wearing a lovely gold necklace that had the words 'Virgo' embossed on the front - a subtle choice of jewellery that paid tribute to her husband - Harry was born on 15 September, making him a Virgo.
