Princess Kate box of condoms gift could be shocking to conservative minds but a special gift from Finnish government. The box of condoms has clearly labeled instructions from the manufacturer just in any case they do not know how to use.
The government of Finland could be alarmed on how Princess Kate got pregnant few months after getting married. And the second child might be on the way a couple of months after giving birth if they are not provided with birth control. It would be a worrying trend. “I think the point (of having condoms in the box) is to remind people that even though you have just given birth you can still get pregnant,” embassy press officer told AFP.
Helping David Cameron’s government in providing condoms to Kate Middleton and Prince William is a show of true friendship by the Finnish government.
“The box that has been given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has also included the condoms. They have been given the exact same box as is given to all expectant mothers in Finland,” the officer stated.
There are other gifts sent by Kale (social security agency) on behalf of the Finnish government. They include bra pads, snowsuits, romper suits and booties.
Kensington Palace has acknowledged the gifts. “We were delighted to receive the very kind gift of the maternity package from the Finnish government,” royal spokeswoman said. “It was a very thoughtful gesture and we’re very grateful for it. I’m sure the Duke and Duchess will be very interested to see the contents.”
