The Queen received a gift of 60 table mats to mark her historic visit to Cabinet, each with a picture of Buckingham Palace chosen from the Royal library at Windsor, Number 10 has said.
The Palace had suggested the mats as a gift. Ministers also made a donation to Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee Trust.
The Queen spoke twice at Cabinet - once to wish ministers a happy Christmas and once to ask for the next Queen's Speech to be shorter rather than longer.
