Christmas gift

A VERY harsh Christmas gift.

We didn’t think it was possible to love Kate Middleton anymore but after hearing this latest behind the scenes information, we absolutely do.

A few years back, Kate gave Prince Harry a hilarious Christmas gift and we can’t stop laughing after hearing what it was.

Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge presented her brother-in-law with a Grow Your Own Girlfriend gift one year and yeah, harsh but also very funny.

It’s not known what year this gas gift was given but it was a long time before he met Meghan Markle, in the summer of 2016.

As we know, Kate and Harry get along like a house on fire and it’s clear they’re well able to have a joke which we just love.

Harry has a nickname for his sister-in-law, a sign of a true friend, and he described Kate and William’s relationship as inspiring during his best man speech at their wedding.



Apparently, it’s customary for members of the royal family to give each other “joke gifts” every Christmas and there have been some funny inclusions throughout the years.

According to The Mirror, Princess Diana once gave Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York a leopard-print bath mat, ten out of ten for that one.

It seems they take gift giving very seriously and it’s customary to take part in the tradition every Christmas Eve around the 6 pm mark.

All the presents are laid out on a table earlier in the day and everyone has to wait for the go-ahead from Prince Phillip before they’re allowed to have a look at their gifts.
