"I can remember being at Sandringham, for the first time, at Christmas. And I was worried what to give the Queen as her Christmas present," the Duchess of Cambridge, 34, recalled in an upcoming ITV documentary honoring the Queen's 90th birthday, according to The Telegraph.
"I was thinking, 'Gosh, what should I give her?' I thought back to what would I give my own grandparents. And I thought, 'I'll make her something.' Which could have gone horribly wrong. But I decided to make my granny's recipe of chutney," Kate continued.

"I was slightly worried about it, but I noticed the next day that it was on the table. I think such a simple gesture went such a long way for me and I've noticed since she's done that on lots of occasions and I think it just shows her thoughtfulness, really, and her care in looking after everybody," she added.
The ITV documentary, Our Queen at Ninety — Kate's first official interview since dishing on her royal engagement to Prince William in November 2010! — is set to air in the UK on Sunday, March 27.
