What can we possibly give to someone who already has everything? These people had interesting ideas! Although a little weird. Here are the strange gifts that Queen Elizabeth has received over the years.

In 1972, the president of France, Georges Pompidou, thought that a way to get the queen's attention was through a giant grasshopper! Strange, but totally useful to always have a cold bottle at your fingertips.
#6) An elephant
That same year, the Cameroon government gave Queen Elizabeth II an elephant! Her enormous gift was taken to the London Zoo.
#5) Whale Teeth
During one of her trips to the Fiji Islands, the chiefs of the tribes gave the Queen whale teeth at a traditional ceremony. This is valuable in their culture.
#4) Two Sloths
During a trip to Brazil, the Queen returned home with two sloths! These lazy animals are not so common and very curious and were also sent to the London Zoo.
#3) Cans of pineapple
Weird, but in 1947, the Queen received as a wedding gift 500 cans of pineapple from Australia.
#2) Portrait made with banana
This portrait of The Queen is made from banana leaves! It was given by President Kagame of Rwanda in 2006 https://t.co/m2T0iXVyfi pic.twitter.com/pEEAHP0ILa— RoyalCollectionTrust (@RCT) October 22, 2017
Paul Kagame, from Rwanda, presented in 2006 this picture made with banana-tinged leaves.
#1) Horse semen
A German breeder gave the Queen the opportunity to have a horse with the genes of her most precious specimen, worth thousands of dollars.
