Queen Gets Kate Middleton And Williams’s Wedding Gift (It’s A Vase): Photos

by | 28th, November 2010

QUEEN Elizabeth II was meeting the cubs at the Ambassador’s residence in Muscat, Oman. She then added to her haul of fancy goods by meeting with the Sultan of Oman, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

He was good for a gold vase, a free meal and a gold musical Faberge-style egg. Is it by chance the Queen visits the showy Gulf states before Christmas and William’s wedding to Kate Middleton?

Elizabeth did not head to the Seychelles. In 1972 her top knobs gave her a collection of shells. Germany once gave her a pet canary. Canada offered two black beavers. New Zealand gave her a canoe. In 1994, Russian gave her a portrait of herself. Barack Obama gave her an iPod.

Stocking fillers – but no show-stopping gift.

So, it’s off to Oman for a top-notch vase and a reassuringly expensive egg. And this on top of the golden medallions and swag bags presented to her by Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed al Nahyan the President of the United Arab Emirates.

The Queen of austerity Britain is doing her bit to save a few quid. Next stop: getting in with the Qatars of Harrod’s…
