The gift comes ahead of King Charles’ Coronation in May.
The Coronation of the King and Queen Consort will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at Westminster Abbey.
Members of the Royal Family will be in attendance for the celebrations.
However, it remains unclear if Charles’ youngest son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will attend.
The couple live in California and will also mark their son Archie’s fourth birthday on May 6.
However, a spokesperson for Harry and Meghan recently confirmed they have had “correspondence” from His Majesty’s office on the Coronation.
They added in a statement: “An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.”
