Duchess Catherine
If you think your grandmother-in-law is hard to shop for, try buying a Christmas gift for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. "I can remember being at Sandringham, for the first time, at Christmas. And I was worried what to give the Queen as her Christmas present. I was thinking, 'Gosh, what should I give her?'" the Duchess of Cambridge said in her first solo interview, which was filmed last year for a documentary made in honor of the Queen's 90th birthday. s it turns out, the best gifts really are the ones that come from the heart.
