По информация на британския "Mirror" кралското семейство харчи по 30 000 британски паунда всяка година за подаръци и картички. Подарък има за всеки член на семейството, както и за всеки служител на Кралицата.
🎅🏽🦌🌲 The Duchess of Cambridge joined children supported by @family_action as they picked Christmas trees at Peterley Manor Farm in Buckinghamshire. Her Majesty The Queen has passed the patronage to The Duchess having held the role for over 65 years. The charity was founded in 1869 to help families in difficulty by giving them practical help and support. Today, Her Royal Highness stepped into the ‘Elves Enchanted Forest’ to make Christmas decorations, prepare food for the reindeers and post letters to Father Christmas. Family Action continues to work directly with vulnerable or disadvantaged children and families through both local and national services. The charity’s services include perinatal mental health services, counselling and therapeutic support and the mentoring of children, young people and adults.
И по-конкретно. Подаръците са точно 620, а картичките - 750. Но какви са подаръците? Най-често книгоразделители, порцеланова вещ, както и коледен пудинг.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge watched last night’s Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium before meeting performers onstage. The event is held each year in aid of the Royal Variety Charity helps those in need who have worked professionally in the entertainment industry, either behind-the-scenes or as performers. The charity owns and manages its own residential and nursing care home for elderly entertainers - Brinsworth House in Twickenham, which was visited by The Duchess of Sussex in 2018. 📸 Press Association
Но какви подаръци си разменят помежду си членовете на кралското семейство? Няма да повярвате! Така например принцеса Ана е подарила на принц Чарлз бяла кожена седалка за тоалетна чиния.
This evening The Duke of Sussex joined over 2,500 young people, volunteers and staff at the inaugural #onsideawards at the Royal Albert Hall. With 13 Youth Zones around the UK and over 50,000 members, @onsideyz is making an incredible impact in some of the most deprived communities in the UK. In the future, OnSide hope to create a network of 100 Youth Zones nationally. The OnSide awards celebrate the young people who have gone above and beyond for their communities. The Duke presented the Health and Wellbeing award to Strong Sisters from Blackburn’s Youth Zone. During visits to OnSide Youth Zones, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have seen the impact these youth facilities are having on young people – providing them with a safe space where they can learn new skills, make new friends and be part of a community. Swipe ⬅️ to see photos from visits earlier this year. Congratulations to all of tonight’s winners! 👏👏 📷Press Association
Кейт Мидълтън пък преди време подарила на принц Хари комплект тип "направи си сам гадже". Е, разбира се, това е било преди Меган Маркъл да се появи в живота му.
On this day, two years ago: 27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world ❤️ • Photo © PA / Alexi Lubomirski / Chris Allerton © SussexRoyal
Принц Хари пък е подарявал на кралицата плюшен пеещ хамстер. Твърди се, че тя доста се стреснала.
