With the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte came a lot of presents. While in New Zealand, Prince Charles and Camilla were given baby booties and a poncho vest and blanket to give to Princess Charlotte, as well as a wool vest for Prince George. I wonder if he'll wear it to nursery school! Not so strange though.

Queen Elizabeth II received a marzipan model of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate -- incredible! This sweet gift was from the German president Joachim Gauck. I wonder if she ate it.

The queen must have a reputation for liking sweet things because Michelle Obama sent her a jar of honey butter from the White House Kitchen Garden. Our First Lady also gave her a limited edition sterling silver honeycomb and bee bud vase by Tiffany. Fancy.

Prince William has received a lot of gifts for his kids including a model of a train, rugby shirts, soft toys, origami birds, toy telephones, pajamas, and packs of cards. While on one trip, Will was given two cashmere wraps to give to Princess Kate. I know he was also given a mini motorcycle for George, too. Not sure what Kate thought of that for George. She's not too pleased with Will riding his.

But perhaps the oddest and yet best gift ever received by the royals was given to Prince Charles. While in New Zealand, a "well-wisher" gave ole Charles a packet of fairy dust. Magic! Exactly what he may need if he wants to be king, since the queen is reportedly wanting to skip her son's reign and give it to her grandson Will.
