Buckingham Palace has today published its annual audit of presents given to the Royal Family.
Every time a member of the Royal Family is officially presented with a present by a visiting dignitary - or a member of the public - they are obliged to record what they received and who from. They do not take ownership of such gifts but are allowed to use them.
Here are some of the more unusual gifts that leading royals received during 2013.
2. Princess Anne: A book entitled Your Arms Remind Me of Pork Luncheon Meat.
A book with this title was presented to the Princess Royal on the 23rd April 2013.
If anyone has a copy of this work, please get in touch. There is no available listing for this book, so this is our artist’s impression of the cover.
7. The Queen: Framed copies of Radio Times covers.
From the BBC, for the downstairs toilet wall.
13. The Queen: “Portrait of Her Majesty burned onto a tree trunk and mounted on wood”.
From a Sri Lankan MP. There is absolutely no way that we could visualise this.
17. The Queen: a porcelain sculpture of her granddaughter Zara Phillips on a horse.
20. Princess Anne: “A contemporary art print of HRH riding a moose”.
Presented in October on the Princess Royal’s trip to Canada.
Unfortunately no images could be found of this work of art, so BuzzFeed recreated an impression of it for your enjoyment.
