The royal family has released a list of the official gifts the Duchess of Cambridge received on her overseas tours.

The couple's office, Clarence House, published lists of all the gifts the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge received on trips in 2011.

For example, when the couple was in California, Gov. Jerry Brown gave them an iPad. The sheriff-coroner of Santa Barbara gifted the couple four coasters.

Records also show that Canadian officials gave the former Kate Middleton a number of hats and three pairs of shoes during her visit to the country with Prince William last year.

William's haul included shirts, cufflinks, a pilot's helmet from a unit of the Royal Canadian Air Force and a Canadian Ranger patrol knife.

Other gifts included a variety of items from baseball caps to caribou antler goggles.

Others opted for more expensive gifts. The jeweler Harry Winston apparently gave Middleton a polar bear brooch with nearly 320 diamonds on it.

A palace official said Wednesday all gifts are registered and then either placed in storage or put on display in royal residences.
