ST.GEORGE'S, GRENADA, JUNE 6, 2011_ When the Grenada Postal Corporation informed the Prime Minister's Office of a "special package" addressed to Prime Minister Tillman Thomas on Thursday, not even the Prime Minister expected what was inside.

Upon opening the expertly wrapped 10 inch by 8 inch package, the questioning look on the face of the Security Coordinator in the Prime Minister's Office slowly changed to one of surprise, as a small white tin was pulled from the box.

The gold inscription on the cover read: "William and Katherine, 29th April 2011", while a card inside read:

"With Best Wishes from TRH the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall in celebration of the wedding of TRH the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

" A surprised Prime Minister Tillman Thomas burst into laughter as he opened the tin to find a 2 inch by 1.5 inch slice of the wedding cake of the TRH the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge."

"I was really pleasantly surprised by this gesture," the Prime Minister said, as he stared at the little white box.
