Butterflies are also very symbolic. In fact, around the world cultures view this flying insect as a creature representing endurance, change, hope and life.

7. Multi-Colored Rings
For the Invictus Games Sydney Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge on October 20th 2018, the duchess selected a trio of colorful gold Ecksand bands.
