An origami bird and a mini throne from the Game of Thrones series were among the official gifts received by the Queen during the past year.
A list released by Buckingham Palace this morning shows a range of items presented to Her Majesty at various events including the Irish State Visit to Windsor in April when she was given a bronze statuette of a horse named Arkle, and a book of the same title, by President of Ireland Michael D Higgins.
Following the 2013 Coronation Arch project in Windsor the Queen was given a bespoke book in presentation box - a photographic record of the project - by the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society.
The framed multi-coloured origami paper bird was given during a two-day visit to Wales, while the seven-inch throne was presented during a royal visit to Northern Ireland in June, where the Queen famously visited the Game of Thrones set.
Other gifts on the list include a dressage crop, a large wooden coffee grinder, a boot scraper, a green tartan scarf and a knitted poppy.
The Duke of Edinburgh's list includes a wooden commemorative plaque from Windsor & Eton Sea Cadet Corps, a case of beer and cufflinks.
The Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, received many gifts on behalf of Prince George including soft toys, books and a dream catcher.
Prince Andrew, the Duke of York's gifts included a framed photo from Royal Ascot, an Arctic Monkeys CD and 10 boxes of mangos.
The Duke of Kent's list includes a tie and pin from SportsAble in Maidenhead in March.
