A Gift Fit for a Queen

Maureen McTeer.  Residences.  Homes of Canada's Leaders.  Prentice-Hall Canada Inc., 1982.
"Oh, lovely, Philip!  We shan't be needing the Bentley anymore!"

(In return, the Queen gave the City of Ottawa six pairs of Mute (Royal) swans.  According to some, they've been a headache for the city ever since.  Fair trade.)
