Kate Middleton once bought Harry a ‘grow-your-own-girlfriend’ kit for Christmas

The Royal Family famously exchange cheap and cheerful joke Christmas presents with each other every year.

Over the years, Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Camilla and the Queen have come up with some brilliant ideas.

But Kate Middleton's cheeky surprise present to Prince Harry one year reportedly takes the top prize after it shone a light on the Duke of Sussex' previous relationships.

It is understood mum-of-three Kate gifted Harry a grow-your-own-girlfriend kit before he met his now wife Meghan Markle.

The funny idea would have been even more savage as the Royals open their Christmas presents together, meaning the Queen would have been watching Harry as he opened it up.

Prince Harry is no stranger to making the Queen laugh at Christmas after he apparently gave his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II a cheeky gift himself.

One year, it was reported Harry gave Her Majesty a shower cap which said "ain't life a b***h" on the front.

Meghan Markle also took part in the tradition, and gifted the Queen a singing hamster toy at her first Royal Christmas in 2017.

Her Majesty is understood to have loved the toy but one of her dogs got hold of it later on in the day and broke it.

Kate, William, Prince Charles, the Queen and Prince Philip are all expected to take part in the tradition this year but Meghan and Harry will miss out.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will instead spend their Christmas in California with their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor as the pandemic prevents them from travelling.

It is understood other Royals will not be travelling to Sandringham either and the Queen and Philip will spend the day just the two of them at Windsor.

The Cambridges will instead spend the day with the Middleton family, as they do every other year.

A Palace source said: "The Queen is acutely aware of the need for caution throughout the crisis and the Christmas period is no different.

"The Queen and The Duke are ­fortunate to spend Christmas with their family every year.

"They understand that their family will have competing demands over the Christmas period and are content to have a quiet festive season this year.

"Like everyone they hope things will get back to normal in 2021."
