Wedding Gifts for Royals
 
What wedding gifts did royal couples receive? According to this article, http://www.boston.com/news/daily/22/norway_princess.htm some of the gifts Haakon & Mette-Marit got were 531 CDs and mittens. Does anyone know what gifts other couples received?

What other wedding gifts did royal couples get?

I remember that Martha Louise and Ari Behn were criticized for asking for some very expensive things, but I don't remember what they were?

I wonder what Charles and Camilla got when they got married in April?

Also, what were the gifts for the current Kings and Queens like on their wedding days? I wonder if they were more extravagant than the ones the Crown Princes and Crown Princesses receive nowadays.

I know that President and Mrs. Reagan gave them a giant crystal bowl, and a Middle Eastern (Saudi, I'm pretty sure) royal family gave Diana a sapphire parure of earrings and a necklace that matched her wedding ring. Diana's pearl drop tiara was the Queen's wedding gift.

One of CP Frederik & CP Mary's presents for the weding last year was a tennis court

crisiñaki 12-31-2005 01:15 AM

some of the presents for the (then) Princes of Spain, Juan Carlos & Sofía on their wedding day (14th May 1962) were:

* Queen Federica gave her son-in-law an golden ring with an camafeo( how do you say that in English?) that comes from the 5 century b.C (which is the same ring the King always wears in his pinky finger):D
* Dictator Franco gave Sofía a diamond tiara that can be changed into a necklace
* Chiang Kai Check gave them a porcelain vase from the XVI century
* Also, the Duchess of Alba opened a bank account for the Spanish people who wanted to give money to the couple

Mette-Marit was given this special daisy tiara because her name means daisy in Norwegian. Mette-Marit is a form of Margaret.

The earrings Princess Letizia wore at her wedding were a gift from Their Majesties, whether the veil was a present of Prince Felipe.

The Dukes of Bragança, D. Duarte and D.ª Isabel, offered Prince Felipe and Letizia a set of porcelain with naval motifs taken from the water-colours painted by the Portuguese king D. Carlos.

such a waste of money and material. She received an equally rediculous thing of silver, in the shape of a polo helmet. If they combined the money they could have bought her a decent jewel that she would actually wear, instead of these horrible things which are collecting dust.

I was reading the newspaper yesterday and it had an article about the vintage tram that is on it's way to Denmark from Melbourne as a wedding present for CP Frederik & CP Mary, and it also said that they got a journal make of kangaroo poop and a 180-ton bale of wool as presents

kwanfan 03-11-2006 12:28 AM

Here is an article discussing gifts that Mette-Marit and Haakon got for their wedding. http://www.aftenposten.no/english/lo...icle182377.ece I think the gift of 1 Norwegian Crown for each Norwegian citizen was a very cool gift.
