British Prime Minister David Cameron gave the princess Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, and the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, sent a snowsuit and a book.
New Zealand sent teddy bears, blankets and booties of native wool, the Chinese gave her a set of silk figurines and the president of Mexico sent a silver rattle.
