Prince George was given nearly 800 gifts from well-wishers across the world last year… pretty impressive for a one-year-old, right?!

The young son of Prince William and Kate Middleton was treated to 774 presents from all around the world in 2014 – more gifts than were given to any other member of the British royal family.

It was more than seven times as many gifts given to the Queen.

Among the presents given to George was a teddy bear from President Obama, which was given to Wills and Kate when the visited the US at the end of last year.

Other presents include 121 items of clothing from Australia and New Zealand alone, alongside a rocking horse, books, games and a miniature academic gown from St Andrews, the university his parents both attended.

He also received rugby clothing, a bucket and spade, musical instrument, sporting equipment, photographs and pictures, in addition to stationary, textile items, ornaments, jewellery and a small table.

Every year, the palace releases the official gift list of items given to the British royal family in the past twelve months. It details all gifts from members of state, official visits and from members of the public.

BBC Royal Correspondent Peter Hunt says official gifts are not personal property of royals but they are allowed to use them or eat them if the goods are perishable.
