I also heard that many of the gifts received by Charles and Diana were burned. But I heard it was during or right after the divorce, and they didn't want any of the gifts making their way into the public.

I read (I think it was in Marion Crawford's book) that QEII received hundreds or thousands of ration stamps for sugar and flour for her wedding.

And yes, Mary and Frederik received some Tasmanian Devils, they are in the Copenhagen zoo.

Weren't the Devils a present for Christian's birth? (Along with another tram from Melbourne...)

I'm curious about something. Can anyone send the royal couple a wedding gift? The average person probably wouldn't know what to get them. The gallery of the royal wedding gifts was very interesting.

Yes, sure, everyone can send them gifts, Mary and Fred got homemade gifts, and IIRC also a case of beer, which was half empty. It was displayed along the other gifts they received

I have a brochure of the exhibition of Charles & Diana's wedding gifts. The list includes the following:
A minature corn dolly horseshoe
A tray & chopping board
The Family cookbook
A tape recording of songs sung by children from an infant school
A badge "I'm proud to be Welsh"
A bird feeder
A telephone index....... (I could go on listing - there's many pages of listings for anyone who is looking for an idea)

But in response to the question - yes anyone can send something and it seems that it will be acknowledged.

Gifts for royal couples are ridiculous. They can have anything they want and people of modest means send lovely gifts that are scant appreciated. Other who have vast and deep pockets shower them with gifts that are nauseating, when they could help peoeple who need help. So, when a royal couple marries, just as some do for flowers at funerals, they can ask that their gifts be designated to a charity, which they like or, perhaps, are a parton of, and obviate the unnecessary melage of gifts that get burried in the vast vaults of wealth.

I'm sure anyone can send them a wedding gift. I agree most people wouldn't know what to get them

Princess Edward & Sophie were the 1st BRF to have a wedding registry and they got a lot of their giftlist from regular folks.

I never really thought about average people sending royal gifts until I saw this blog. Since Prince Edward & Sophie had a wedding registry, it was easier for regular folks to send them wedding gifts. At least you knew that they wanted what you were sending them.
