Royals including Kate Middleton, 38, and the Queen, 94, will usually spend Christmas together at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. While celebrations may be slightly different this year, the family are sure to still exchange presents.

Members of the family are sure to have access to an endless supply of potential gifts.

However, it has been reported that the family much prefers humorous presents to lavish ones.

What gifts have royals bought in the past?

Members of the Royal Family opt for personalised gifts intended to make each other laugh.

Princess Anne reportedly bought her brother Prince Charles a white leather toilet seat.


While this was meant to be a joke, the future King is said to have liked it so much he took with him while travelling.

Kate Middleton joined the Royal Family in April 2011 when she married Prince William.

She has spent most years celebrating with the royals and quickly picked up on the theme of joke presents.

Before Prince Harry was married, the Duchess of Cambridge is said to have bought him a ‘Grow Your Own Girlfriend’ kit.

The Duke of Sussex has also been known to give funny gifts of his own.

When picking presents, he is thought to have gifted Prince William a comb to poke fun at his hair loss.

Prince Harry also gave his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, a shower cap.

The Queen is thought to have received other gifts including a singing fish for her wall and a washing up apron.

As well as having a laugh, Kate gave the Queen a meaningful gift when at her first Christmas at Sandringham.

The Duchess of Cambridge chose to make a batch of homemade chutney for the monarch.

Speaking in a documentary for the Queen’s 90th birthday, Kate said: “I can remember being at Sandringham, for the first time, at Christmas.

“And I was worried what to give the Queen as her Christmas present. I was thinking, ‘Gosh, what should I give her?’

“I thought back to what I would give my own grandparents and I thought, ‘I’ll make her something,’ which could have gone horribly wrong. But I decided to make my granny’s recipe for chutney.”
