Christmas is a big occasion for the Royal Family, and a special time for the Queen to be reunited with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Most years, the Monarch has the family stay at her Sandringham Estate, where they eat Christmas dinner, play festive games and exchange gifts.

The royals are said to be very keen on joke presents, and Kate Middleton proved she was not an exception in 2011 when she joined Prince William's family for the festivities.

In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge showed that she also had a sense of humour with her Christmas gift for her brother-in-law, Harry.

According to multiple reports from the Mirror, the Express and Marie Claire, in 2011, Kate gave Harry a 'Grow Your Own Girlfriend' toy.

This was long before Harry had met Meghan Markle and the Duke of Sussex was single after a number of high-profile relationships.

What makes this story even funnier is that the Royal Family open their Christmas gifts together, and so the Queen was probably watching the whole unwrapping unfold.

We're sure Harry took the joke well as he is reportedly also a fan of a joke gift himself.

According to reports, he even gifted the Queen a shower cap one year which read 'ain't like a b***h'.

We'd love to have seen her face when she opened that!
