During the engagement, the Duchess of Cambridge was presented with a special charity candle designed by Plum & Ashby – a poignant new addition to the Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace home she shares with Prince William and their children Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.

The Cambridges will be able to take part in the global Wave of Light event to mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week at 7pm on Thursday 15 October.

Candles will be lit across the world to remember all the babies who have been lost too soon, with people able to share images of their own candle on social media using the hashtag #WaveOfLight.

Unsurprisingly, the limited edition, Fresh Fig & Jasmine candle sold out quickly, but you can pre-order to secure yours from November 16.
