Prince George Given Special Gifts From Kenyan Tribe, Prince William Receives Mini-Motorcycle for His Son

Even though he is too young to understand the significance, Prince George has been given a very special and meaningful gift from a Kenyan tribe.

The four-month-old received a fattened black bull and goat as a christening present from the Samburu community, according to People.

The bull will grow up in Lewa, along with four heifers, with the goal of creating a royal herd, according to the magazine. Lewa holds a special significance for Prince George's parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton: they enjoyed a safari in the area during their engagement in 2010.

Prince William expressed his gratitude in a letter, which was also written partly in Swahili.

"I remember my time with you, the Samburu, with immense happiness and I could not be more grateful to you all for this kindness," the 31-year-old royal wrote. "It brings me great pride and joy to know that George's 'pension' will be herded on a land that we love and care deeply for. We only hope that one day, he will be able to come and see them for himself."

The gift was presented in a special Samburu ceremony on Nov. 21 in Wamba. Dr. Christian Turner, the British high commissioner, was in attendance on behalf of Prince George's parents.

And the toys just keep on coming for the tiny prince.

The Duke of Cambridge visited the Motorcycle Live Show on Saturday, Nov. 30 in Birmingham, and proudly posed with a mini-motorcycle, also known as a "balance bike," for his little boy.

The bike features a royal crest, the Motorcycle Live logo and a "G" with a crown above the letter.

Of course, Prince George will need possibly a year or two, before he can hop on his new ride.

Prince William, who was at the Library of Birmingham on Friday, Nov. 29, gushed to a children's reading group that his son has "very chubby cheeks" and "likes looking at picture books."

Prince William later watched a soccer—or as the Brits say football— match between Aston Villa and Sunderland at Villa Park in Birmingham.
