There’s a royal wedding on don’t ya know? And what with every Tom, Dick and Prince Harry wanting a slice of the wedding cake and a chance to cash in on the craving for Kate and William merchandise, there’s a whole raft of royal tat out there. We’ve seen a knitted royal family and alternative wedding china, now we sort the diamonds from the duds with our five of the best curious Kate and Wills souvenirs.
Biscuiteers royal wedding biscuits
These bejewelled biscuits made with passion and skill are so pretty you won’t want to eat them. The royal wedding tin features patriotic flags, crowns, sparkly shoes (fit for a princess) and even a royal coach. The perfect accompaniment to a right royal cup of tea.
Crown Jewels condoms
‘Something for the weekend, sir?’ Er, yes actually, one can’t be too careful these days. Bring some regal flair to your love life with these princely prophylactics. They’re beautifully presented in a collectors’ box to use on the day or keep forever. I think it’s worth mentioning that these are not supplied to, or approved by, Prince William of Wales, Catherine Middleton or any member of the Royal Family.
Kiss Me Kate beer
Nottingham based Castle Rock Brewery are celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton with the creation of their very own royal beer. Called ‘Kiss Me Kate’, the real ale is a delicious way to toast the happy couple and is available around the UK in supermarkets.
Royal wedding gnomes
If swamping your house in flags and bunting isn’t enough, you can always take the patriotic fervour outside with these royal garden gnomes. Complete with Union flag hats, they’re the ultimate accessory to the tasteful Royalist garden.
Royal Pez dispensers
Sweetie dispenser giants Pez have made two unique dispensers featuring the royal couple. But rather than use the occasion to cash in (respect for this, Pez) they’re auctioning the one-off items for charity on ebay. Bids are currently approaching £8,000 so get in quick.
