Are you royally obsessed with the ginger Prince and his soon-to-be wife? Now, you can own an official piece of their historic romance – and one that you can eat off, too!
The eligible Prince Harry broke royal tradition (and the internet) when he proposed to Suits star Meghan Markle in November 2017 while preparing a roast chook. It seems royals are just like us!
Fast forward a few months and the smitten pair are preparing to say ‘I do’ in a lavish ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19.
As with every royal wedding before it – like Kate Middleton’s nuptials to Prince William and Princess Diana’s wedding to Charles, the affair will bring with it a bevy of commemorative merchandise – some authentic, some not so much.
Those wanting to get their hands on an official piece of Harry and Meghan’s puzzle will be pleased to hear that the Royal Collection Trust has unveiled a range of fine bone china, said to have been approved by the happy couple themselves.
“Royal Collection Trust is delighted to offer the official range of commemorative china to celebrate this happy occasion,” says retail director, Nuala McGourty.
“We are pleased to continue our support of the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, who have manufactured our previous commemorative wares to celebrate royal birthdays, anniversaries and weddings.”
Items in the collection include a decorative miniature coffee mug (£19.95), standard-sized coffee mug (£25), pillbox (£35), tankard (£39) and plate (£49).
The pretty design in white and cornflower blue features a monogram of the couple’s initials, tied together in white ribbons and surmounted by the coronet of Prince Harry.
A decorative border, inspired by the ironwork of the 13th-century chapel in which the couple will exchange vows, pays homage to the historic venue.
Each individual piece is hand-finished with 22-carat gold before it’s packed up in cornflower blue gift boxes and complemented by an official card to explain the intricate detailing.
The collection is available to purchase online from www.royalcollection.org.uk/shop, and in Royal Collection Trust shops at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
