Buying a suitable gift for a future king who already has pretty much everything he needs is no easy feat.

But one imaginative individual came up with the perfect present for The Duke of Cambridge when he visited Australia last year – a jar of Vegemite.

The memento, the equivalent to Marmite in the UK, is among an extensive list of souvenirs given to Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge during their 2011 overseas tours.

Other unusual gifts included a Caribou antler, a pair of snow goggles and a dog toy, while there were more traditional presents such as books, DVDs and photographs.

William travelled to New Zealand and Australia in March last year, returning with a cricket jacket, a selection of baseball caps, scented soaps and hand towels, Aboriginal craftwork and even earrings given to him by generous well-wishers.

He was also presented with a collection of carved and inscribed building fragments from debris caused by an earthquake in Christchurch.The couple were handed more souvenirs when they visited Canada and America between 30 June and 10 July.

Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs presented the fashion-loving Duchess with three pairs of shoes, while the Minister of Alberta gave her a blue hat, according to the list published by Clarence House.
