Prince William recently embarked on a two-day trip to New York City, where he fulfilled several Earthshot Award-related obligations.
The Prince of Wales also made time to pick up some souvenirs for his three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
As gifts from his father’s travels often delight the little royals, William made sure to bring home some special souvenirs that capture the spirit of the Big Apple.
Gifts Prince William brought home from NYC for his children
During his visit to New York this week, Prince William stopped by a firehouse that was instrumental in the 9/11 recovery efforts.
There he received some gifts for George, Charlotte, and Louis: small rubber fire trucks with the park’s logo, pens, notebooks, and T-shirts.
The gifts continued to arrive during Guillermo’s walk after leaving the firehouse.
Supporters presented the Prince with three “I Love NY” T-shirts for their children.
According to reporter Carly Ledbetter, William commented that he would “love” to bring his children to New York someday.

The New York souvenirs are not the first that Prince William and Kate Middleton have collected for their children during their travels.
From personalized t-shirts to stuffed animals, the couple often pick up small gifts wherever they go.
These gifts allow George, Charlotte, and Louis to feel connected to their parents’ work and learn about new places.
While the prince received gifts for his children, he also fulfilled several important engagements.
He attended meetings at the United Nations, saw firsthand the work of the Billion Oyster Project spoke at the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit, and even went for a jog in Central Park.
