Eat Like Royalty with Prince Charles's $778 Gourmet Christmas Basket

Kitchen Daily 12/2/13

This holiday season, Prince Charles is selling exclusive wicker gift hampers filled with natural and organic food and drink products from his Highgrove estate.

The gift baskets range in price from £50 (about $82 at the current exchange rate) for the Taste of Christmas Hamper, which contains a modest selection of tea, butter, biscuits and sweets, to £475 (approximately $778) for the Christmas Gourmet Hamper, brimming with 34 items like champagne, fruit chutney, green olive crackers and bubbly-infused chocolate truffles.

A Highgrove spokesman says that the food and drink are "made to our unique recipes" and the collection "uses seasonal produce from the Highgrove gardens and farms" when possible, reports UK's Daily Mail.

Profits from the sale of Highgrove products go toward The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation, a grant-making charity which supports a wide range of causes and projects.

Check out the slideshow above to find out what's inside the luxurious $778 Christmas Gourmet Hamper.
