PRINCE GEORGE and his siblings received some adorable gifts for their parents to take home from Wales – with one item proving a family favourite.
Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, visited Wales this week, taking a tour around Swansea Bay. Well-wishers flocked to greet the royals, and some even passed on gifts for the kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis.
The Duke and Duchess met a local crew of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), as well as parents, workers and union members at Port Talbot Steelworks on their visit.
They also visited a local boxing club as part of a drive to highlight the importance of physical activity in everyday life.
As they were leaving, the royals were handed adorable gifts for their children – Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one.
In three little boxes, the couple received a pair of boxing gloves for each of their children.

The sweet gift was tweeted by ITV’s Chris Ship, and royal fans loved them, especially the pink ones for Charlotte.
One wrote: “The pink boxing gloves for Princess Charlotte are brilliant!”
And another said: “The rose is so beautiful”.
Prince William was clearly delighted with the gifts, saying: “Thank you so much. Love these, brilliant.”

The Duke then revealed the future king, Prince George, is already showing an interest in the sport.
He said: “George is already eyeing up the punchbag. Start them young!”
The sport is a firm favourite with the royals – with Prince Philip holding a special affinity with boxing for one touching reason.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s first solo public engagement was on March 2, 1948, when Philip went to the London Federation of Boys’ Clubs Boxing Finals at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Court Circular, published in The Times the next day, revealed the Duke presented prizes following the championship.
Also like his great-grandfather, Little George is showing a passion for plenty of sports.
He was spotted at the Carrow Stadium in Norfolk in October, where he cheered on his team, Aston Villa, as they won against hosting team Norwich FC.
The Duchess, an amateur photographer, then released some pictures of George wearing his England jersey.
The pictures were shared on George’s sixth birthday.

According to the Duke, his eldest son even wakes up every morning to the famous Three Lions song!
William told Frank Skinner, the song’s performer: “I listen to your song every morning.
“Honestly, George plays it every morning ever since the World Cup.
“I thought it would fade away but it hasn’t. He still plays it every day.”
The tiny royal has also follow mum Kate’s love for tennis – after it was revealed he’d been getting lessons from Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer.
