Following the birth of Prince George, heir to the British throne, parents Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William have received a number of congratulatory gifts. Nick Clegg, deputy Prime Minister, sent the royal couple a cot set and a bag of his favorite coffee, reports BBC. The cot cover and sheet were hand embroidered from a convent in Spain, said Clegg, from a village where his wife grew up. David Cameron, British Prime Minister, mentioned sending a box set of Roald Dahl books. In a recent tweet, BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt also said that Edward Miliband, Leader of the Labor Party, sent the couple an apple tree. While the Duke and Duchess appreciate all congratulations, they asked those who might send gifts to instead give money to charity.
