Prince George's quirky christening gifts from Pippa Middleton and Count Kalnoky of Transylvania

26 OCTOBER 2013 It's not every day that a future monarch is christened and so in honour of his special day Prince George of Cambridge has received some rather unique gifts.

George's aunty, Pippa Middleton, reportedly splashed out £7000 to give her first nephew a bespoke present that will last a lifetime.

Pippa is said to have visited Wrightson and Platt, a company who make silver casts of a baby's hands and feet which are then engraved with their name and date of birth.


 




One of George's more obscure gifts was given to him by Count Tibor Kalnoky who is a friend of Prince Charles and manages his estates in the Romanian region of Transylvania.

According to the Telegraph The Count has given George his own field of wild flowers in the Transylvanian hills.

"If we sent him flowers, they would wilt," said Count Talnoky, who was present when Prince William married Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey. "So this is a symbolic gift."

"Wild flowers are fragile like new-born babies," he added. "This gift will protect this area and contribute to raising public awareness, so that rare flowers can be protected."
