The Most Bonkers Gifts Given To The Royal Family!

The royal family

What do you get the family who have everything? A jar of pickled garlic, a pair of wooden boxer shorts and Jaffa Cakes apparently. 

Well, that's what well-wishers around the globe gave to various members of the royal family in 2015. 

Since new rules were introduced in 2003, all gifts given to the royal family have to be declared - which means that we can have a sneaky look at some of the gifts they received! And some of them are seriously bizarre...
