If you were thinking of nipping to Tesco for a value toaster to send to William and Kate, you can take your coat off and sit back down because the happy couple have announced a charitable gift fund in place of a traditional list.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are said to have been touched by the goodwill shown to them since their engagement was announced and have decided that this goodwill should benefit charitable organisations.

The official charitable fund website states: "All the charities intended to benefit from the Fund have been chosen by Prince William and Miss Middleton. They reflect the couple's passions and interests as well as some of their experiences in their lives together so far."

The full list of charities (below) draws from five categories: support for service personnel and their families; changing lives through arts and sport; help and care at home; children fulfilling their potential; and conservation for future generations. It makes no mention of aid for disaster relief efforts in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami, however a spokesperson explained that William and Kate were "obviously very shocked and saddened by the events in Japan" but that the charitable fund had been in the works for weeks and focused on countries the prince had visited.

The full list of charities that will benefit is as follows:

Peace Players

Ocean Youth Trust

Greenhouse Schools
