What did the royals receive this year?

In particular, Kate Middleton received a rugby ball and cycling jersey. It seems her admirers believe she is quite a sports fan! Her husband, Prince William, on the other hand, got a funny and childish present – two fabric gnomes.

Of course, we cannot but mention queen’s presents. Elizabeth II reportedly was given glittery Christmas balls, a bed for her gorgeous corgis, and silk scarves.

Meghan’s first present

The Suits actress was on the list too. Surprisingly, the 36-year-old picked up something almost everyone has in their household – an apron!

At first glance, the present choice might seem unusual, but it makes sense because the bride-to-be is an avid cook. It was delivered by the Duke of Cambridge himself. A member of the public passed on the apron to the prince during his visit to Finland in November 2017.

History behind the gift

In fact, there are also romantic reasons for such a gift. In case you did not know, Prince Harry proposed to his beloved while roasting chicken for dinner, so it is a touching tribute to their engagement story.

There is nothing as delicious (or as impressive) as a perfectly roasted chicken.

The actress thought they were going to spend a standard typical night until he got on one knee.
