What do you give at Christmas to the family that has everything?

But Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has a novel idea for her mother-in-law the Queen and daughters-in-law Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.

She keeps bees in her private house in Wiltshire and makes limited edition honey from the hives.

Meghan and Kate are keen cooks and would certainly love a jar or two of the sweet stuff.

The honey also raises money for good causes.

Every year Camilla, 71, sends 500 jars of the limited edition products to posh grocers Fortnum and Mason.

This year the proceeds from the £20 pots are going to Helen & Douglas House, a children's hospice in Oxford.

Camilla has also invited children and their families from the hospice to a special Christmas tea party at Clarence House at the start of next month.

The Duchess is patron of Helen & Douglas House, which does amazing work looking after terminally-ill children.

Camilla has had bee hives in her Ray Mill House garden for a number of years – and has sold honey for charity for the last four years.

The honey is described as  'light and delicate with an irresistible sweet caramel flavour – perfect spread on toast or drizzled over porridge'.

Clare Periton, CEO of Helen & Douglas House said: "We are very grateful to The Duchess of Cornwall, our Patron, for choosing us as the charity to benefit from the sale of her honey this year.

"The money raised will help us provide medical, emotional and practical support to local families to help them deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together.

"Our children and their families are looking forward to their Christmas visit to Clarence House to meet The Duchess of Cornwall."

The charity has two houses which care for babies, kids and young adults who are terminally ill.

They also offer seven family suites so the whole family can stay at the same time.

Helen House opened in 1982 and was the world's first children's hospice.
