英国王室公布了2016年收到的礼物清单,从腌香肠、辣椒、石榴到杯子、靠垫套、袜子,可谓五花八门、应有尽有。给王室送礼的确是件难办的事儿,送的太贵重或者太廉价都不太合适,似乎也只能想一些“另类”的招数了。下面来看看去年英国王室都收哪些令人啼笑皆非的礼物吧。

英王室收到的最奇葩礼物 种子、辣椒、高脚杯

The weird, wonderful, and occasionally mundane gifts showered upon the Royal Family have been revealed in an official list published today - and Prince Charles and Camilla received their fair share as they undertook three official tours in 2016.
英国王室收到的官方礼物清单今日被公之于众,这些礼物有的奇葩、有的精美,还有个别平淡无奇。查尔斯王子和卡米拉王妃去年进行了三次正式访问,因此收到了不少礼物。

Some of the most unusual presents they received included cushion covers, swords, socks, goblets, cured sausage meats, and even ergonomic crayons.
他们收到的最不寻常的礼物包括垫子套、剑、袜子、酒杯、腌香肠,甚至还有人体工程学蜡笔。

However, among the gifts most likely to raise eyebrows are those from the Bahraini royal family, which they received during their visit to the country in November.
然而,其中可能让人最惊讶的礼物来自巴林王室,是查尔斯王子和卡米拉王妃去年11月访问该国时收到的。

The Bahraini government has strongly denied these claims but controversy continues to surround the royals' relationship.
巴林政府强烈否认这些说法,但围绕王室关系的争议仍在继续。

Official gifts, declared annually in a list, can be worn and used, but are not considered the royals' personal property and they do not pay tax on them.
官方礼品清单每年都会公之于众,这些礼品可以佩戴和使用,但不能视为王室的私人财产而王室不需要为此纳税。
