We’ve sifted through mountains of forgettable t-shirts, tea towels, mugs, biscuit tins and cushions to bring you our edit of the cheekiest, chicest, or most irreverent Royal Wedding memorabilia around.
Our round-up includes a regal pair of flats from French Sole and a sweet t-shirt with a sassy message from Sainsbury’s. Tea bags and deely boppers are sure to make you smile, as is Anya Hindmarch’s tote bag. Because it wouldn’t be a Royal Wedding memorabilia compilation without a tea towel, we’ve snuck in a rather stylish one of those too.
For sore losers with a sense of humour, we have two options: a fine bone china plate reading ‘It Should Have Been Me’ from the KK Outlet design group, and a poster declaring ‘Wills Asked Me First But I Said No’ by designer Cherry Pete.
And for anyone looking forward to the 29th only insofar as it marks an end to speculative buzz, or anyone who prides herself on being the first to say, ‘I’m so sick of the Royal Wedding,’ we’ve got merch for you too.
Graphic designer Lydia Leith created the Royal Wedding Sick Bag in response to a friend who declared she was ‘so over it’ only a month after the Royal couple announced their engagement. The 24-year-old entrepreneur expected to sell ‘about 10’ bags to friends, but a snarky sense of enthusiasm about the Royal Wedding has sent her sales skyrocketing to more than 7,000 since February.
So, will she require one of her devices next Friday?
‘I definitely like it more, now that this all has happened,’ she said. ‘But people do get sick of hearing about it.’
