Canada has decided on the present it will be sending to Princess Charlotte — and it looks like the government knows she might already be the girl who has everything.
During question period on Tuesday, Minister of Health Rona Ambrose and Prime Minster Stephen Harper's wife Laureen Harper announced the government would be making a $100,000 donation to Immunize Canada in honour of the princess — as well as sending her a Canadian-made snowsuit (presumably for her eventual visit to Canada).
Harper has made his position on immunizations very clear in the past, telling the CBC in an interview, “It's hard for me not to get very emotional about this because we know, we scientifically know, what vaccinations and immunizations have done for us, personally, in our generation and for generations after us."
As one Ottawa hospital notes, it was appropriate timing for the present:

In honour of her older brother Prince George's birth, the Canadian government had also donated $100,000 to a charity, in that instance a "Canadian child-focused charity" that was not named at the time. They also sent over Canadian children's books in both English and French, which we're hoping Georgie kept in good shape for Charlotte — we don't want her missing out on The Paper Bag Princess.
Other countries' gifts to the Princess have included a blanket from Australia made from Tasmanian wool, a sundress from Israel and a wool hat from Scotland, according to Us Weekly, as well as other donations to various charities.
