‘Could have gone horribly wrong!’ Kate lays bare first ever Christmas gift for the Queen




KATE MIDDLETON’s first ever Christmas gift for the Queen could have turned out to be a total disaster, the duchess once said.



As per tradition, the Royal Family is set to exchange gifts on Christmas Eve at Sandringham, but the Duchess of Cambridge admitted she was especially nervous about presenting her gift to the Queen.


Speaking in a documentary to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday, Kate Middleton revealed the sweet homemade Christmas present she gave to the Queen.



While the Duchess of Cambridge was excited to celebrate her first Christmas at Sandringham in 2011, the thought of finding a gift for the Queen was keeping her on her toes.

However, rather than hitting the High Street or furiously searching online for a gift for the Queen, Kate came up with an idea for a more personal homemade present which according to Kate, went down very well with Her Majesty.



She explained: “I can remember being at Sandringham, for the first time, at Christmas. And I was worried what to give the Queen as her Christmas present.



“I was thinking, ‘Gosh, what should I give her?.”I thought back to what I would give my own grandparents.



“And I thought, ‘I’ll make her something,’ which could have gone horribly wrong. But I decided to make my granny’s recipe for chutney.



“I was slightly worried about it, but I noticed the next day that it was on the table.



“I think such a simple gesture went such a long way for me and I’ve noticed since she’s done that on lots of occasions and I think it just shows her thoughtfulness, really, and her care in looking after everybody.”

William is said to have struggled with the impact of his job.

Members of the Firm exchange their presents on Christmas Eve and there is reportedly one rule when it comes to presents – the cheaper and cheekier the better.



The Queen is all set to enjoy a ‘new normal’ Christmas this year – and may even appear in public for the first time since early autumn, after receiving the go-ahead from her doctors.



The 95-year-old monarch has either been resting or undertaking only ‘light’ desk duties following a mystery health scare earlier this year.
