Your Gifts for the Royals (2005)

Your Gifts for the Royals

If you had no obstacles - whether money wise, geographically or in any other way - what would you give the royals for Christmas?

Tim Tams are Australian, they are basically chocolate buscuits but there is something about them that makes them stand out from other chocolate buscuits lol

The general practice for some people, is to bite of th two corners of the tim tam and dip it in coffee and suck the coffee from the top of the buscuit, and it all melts in your mouth, :p

hmmm...i think i'm the one who needs the paper bag when I see Mabel.

a gag seems to be the gift Ragnhild is giving herself these days. (and a good thing that is)

why does Sophie need 'stand by your man'? are there rumors Edward is cheating?????

do you mind giving Fergie a plane ticket to the northpole to go with that suitcase?

LOL. Not at all. But the girl has to sit through alot of musicals and the Judy Garland posters must really get on your nerves after a while.

Hmmm lets see.....for a few of the royal ladies I would buy them a new wardrobe...or at least a stylist!
Other than that I really can't think of anything....they have a lot already & have access to many things.

LOL! Dennism, you are hilarious. I would have to agree on all of your ideas.

It does seem that some royal ladies could use a fashion advisor or a better one with some of the crazy things we seen this year. (Example: Sophie's grey saucer hat at the roytal ascot this year. Personally, I think that could have been much better used as a satelite dish, rather than headwear.)

Indeed. I wonder how many channel that thing picked up. probably more than some of her other hideous "hats."
