LONDON -- The new Duchess of Cambridge was showered with gifts -- from head to toe -- on her first overseas visit as a member of the royal family.

Palace records show that Canadian officials and well-wishers gave the former Kate Middleton hats, tartan and peacock fascinators and three pairs of shoes during her visit to the country with Prince William last year.

William's gifts included shirts, cufflinks, a pilot's helmet from a unit of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and a Canadian Ranger patrol knife.

Governor General David Johnson -- representative in Canada of William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II -- gave the couple a quilt.

The couple also visited California, where they received an iPad from Gov. Jerry Brown and four coasters from the Sheriff-Coroner of Santa Barbara.
