The Queen gave the Pope 18 items from Buckingham Palace, Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral. Eggs, whiskey, beer and the items also included two types of honey, “Coronation Best Bitter,” “Grandad’s chutney” and “Sandringham handmade aromatherapy soaps”.

The Pontiff also met with President Obama earlier in the week, he gifted the Pope a basket of fruit and vegetables from Michelle’s garden in the White House back yard.

A Vatican official said the pope would likely share the food with other residents of the guest house where he has lived since his election after renouncing the spacious papal apartments or would donate it.
