Royal Gifts

July 14, 2017

This year's visitors to the summer opening of Buckingham Palace are in for a treat because they will be able to enjoy a special exhibition of official gifts presented to Her Majesty the Queen during the last 65 years.  There are about 250 objects given during State visits, Overseas tours and official engagements as well as those marking significant moments in the Queen's life like birthdays and jubilees.  But there will be some gifts missing: I doubt that the bull elephant given by the President of the Cameroon or the two black beavers gifted by the Canadians will put in an appearance!!  The dates for your diary are between 22 July and 1 October.
