Here are some of the brilliant and bizarre gifts Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were given for their wedding
If you've ever attended a wedding, you will know all about the pressures of getting the couple a gift. But while your friend may ask for a new toaster or a TV, what do you get a couple that seemingly has it all? Well, that was the question posed to the guests at the royal wedding over the weekend.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in an adorable and grand ceremony at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The couple invited 600 guests to the occasion, with the likes of David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hardy and George and Amal Clooney being in attendance.
While Harry and Meghan asked their guests to refrain from bringing them gifts and instead to donate money to one of their many chosen charities, some people had other ideas. The Australian prime minister, for example, decided to name two koalas at Taronga Zoo, near Sydney, after the couple. But, not done there, he also gifted the couple matching Akubra hats as well.
The hats were made in Dempsey, New South Wales, and were described as a "very Australian present." Then, in a final act of kindness, the Australian government also donated $10,000 to the Australian International Military Games Limited.
Taking to his social media, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said: "Congratulations Harry & Meghan on your wedding day. With our very best wishes for a long and happy life together, Malcolm and Lucy."
The French President Emmanuel Macron picked out a lovely gift for the couple - with him making a nod at the British spy series, James Bond. Macron gifted the couple a bespoke box from the lighter and pen manufacturer S.T. Dupont's 007 collection. The box contained two engraved pens, a lighter and a vanity case.
Meanwhile, Prince Seeiso and Princess Mabereng of Lesotho gave the couple Wonderbags - a non-electric portable cooker which has saved lives across Africa. The couple were also invited to Lesotho after they invited the duo to the wedding.
Taking to his Twitter account, Canada's Justin Trudeau posted a congratulations message to the couple, confirming that the Canadians would be donating money to charity.
He said: ‘To celebrate their union, Canada will donate $50,000 to Jumpstart, a Canadian charity dedicated to making play and sports more accessible to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Since 2005, Jumpstart has helped more than 1.6 million children of all abilities get out on the field and be part of a team."
The couple had asked that donations be given to Chiva Projects, an organization helping kids dealing with AIDS; Crisis U.K., a national charity for the homeless; Corporal Scotty, a group for children of the armed forces; Street Games, a youth sports charity; the ocean conservation group Surfers Against Sewage; and Wilderness UK.
The Trump family confirmed that they would be donating to one of the seven charities that were named by the duo.
The Queen, however, went rogue and decided to gift the newlyweds a hunting lodge in the Sandringham estate.
While Harry and Meghan will no doubt be delighted with their hats and lighters, it's pretty hard to eclipse being gifted a house, isn't it? Oh to be a royal.
