The Pope gave The Queen on her visit in April 2014 this blue orb decorated with a silver cross for Prince George her eight-month-old great grandson.

It’s for the little boy,” the Pope said in Spanish, as he pointed to the orb, which a traditional emblem of the power of Christian monarchs.

The orb represents earthly dominion under the Christian faith - a fitting gift for a child who will one day be King and in the UK, Defender of the Faith.

It sat on a silver base on which was inscribed, in English, the words: “Pope Francis to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge”.
