The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, has been given a gift fit for royalty. In celebration of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge’s christening last week, she was reportedly given a one-of-a-kind Disney-themed gift worth $200,000.
Us Weekly reports that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s close friends gifted Charlotte, 2 months, a painting inspired by the poster for Disney’s 1937 animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in honor of her big day. The “7-foot-wide canvas,” crafted by artist Stephen Cawston, was reportedly commissioned by “someone close to the family.”

While the gift was made in special recognition of Princess Charlotte’s christening, Us Weekly reports the royal family has yet to receive the gift. The piece is said to be inside The Homarge Gallery in London and will eventually be delivered to Kensington Palace. Perhaps the hold up is due to William and Kate’s current residence. The couple relocated to their summer home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, England, in May.
Members of Britain’s royal family came together to attend Princess Charlotte’s christening in Sandringham, England, on July 5. The religious ceremony was held at St. Mary Magdalene Church, the very same location Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana, was baptized in 1961. Not only were Kate, William, and their almost 2-year-old son Prince George present for the affair, so were several other members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II.
On Thursday, four days after the ceremony, the palace released a few stills from the event. The images, taken by photographer Mario Testino, feature the newfound family of four. Additional stills show William holding Prince George and smiling, a beaming Kate looking down at Princess Charlotte and Kate and William posing with their respective families.
