William and Kate's wedding gifts
Britain's Prince William and Princess Catherine have received a number of extravagant wedding gifts, despite asking for donations to their chosen charities.
The couple - who married in London's Westminster Abbey last Friday - asked guests and members of the public who wished to celebrate their nuptials to give money to organisations via a Charitable Gift Fund but they have still reportedly received a number of lavish gifts.
A source told Closer magazine: "Presents were pouring in from state heads, celebrities and members of the public. Sir Richard Branson made a hefty donation and has also offered Necker Island, in the British Virgin Islands, to them for their second, third and fourth honeymoon - he told them it was important to keep honeymooning!"
Although Prince William is a patron of a number of charities, he and Catherine decided to choose causes they have no relation to in order to help the organisations gain more exposure.
A statement on behalf of the couple before their wedding said: "All the charities intended to benefit from the Fund have been chosen by Prince William and Miss Middleton.
They reflect the couple's passions and interests as well as some of their experiences in their lives together so far.
"None of the charities chosen have any formal relationship with either Prince William or Miss Middleton. Rather the couple have chosen to take the chance to benefit some causes that have less exposure or which are undertaking valuable work in areas of the community which the couple feel would benefit from this support.
"Prince William retains all his current Patronages and will continue to support them in his usual way."
