Kate Middleton reveals the hilarious, slightly naughty gift she once got Prince Harry for Christmas

When it comes to Christmas in Buckingham Palace, the Royals have some slightly different tradtions to the rest of us.

The evening of Christmas Eve is when all the royals gather around at Sandringham House in Norfolk. And instead of opening big, fancy and expensive gifts, the Queen's brief is that the gifts given must be " a cheap joke gift."

And while it's hard to imagine any of the royal family scouting around in a $2 shop for a hilarious gift, some absolute gold presents have been exchanged over the years.

Back in 2011, when Prince Harry was still single, Kate Middleton decided to give him a rather suitable, hilarious gift.

“Kate and William have bought him a Grow Your Own Girlfriend kit, along with a more stylish gift – Gucci loafers because ‘all his shoes have holes in them,’” the British edition of Grazia magazine reported back in 2011.

While this Christmas will be the first Christmas Meghan Markle will attend as a married woman, she did attend last year. And according to the Daily Star, she got right in on the fun, buying the Queen a singing toy hamster.

Other gifts over the years include Princess Anne buying Prince Charles a white, leather toilet seat. While Princess Di once brought Fergie a leopard print bath mat.
