With just over a fortnight to go until the wedding, we can safely say the countdown is on! A reader emailed me last week suggesting I write a post covering commemorative items and memorabilia available to mark the occasion. We'll begin with a look at the official collection from the Royal Collection Shop. The exclusive design shows a monogram surmounted by the coronet of Prince Harry, and tied together with white ribbons. The decorative borders are inspired by the mid-thirteenth century Gilebertus doors at St. George's Chapel. Below, the Official Commemorative Mug and the Official Commemorative Plate.
The obligatory Royal Wedding Tea Towel has been a must-have in my family through many a royal wedding. We also see the Commemorative Pillbox, the Candle featuring a rich floral fragrance of white lilies, orange blossoms, neroli, tuberose, violets and lily of the valley on a delicate base of vanilla and musk. Next, it's the Heart Decoration which combines the stars and stripes flag of the United States of America and the Union Jack flag of the United Kingdom.
A very nice replica of Meghan's engagement ring called the Buckingham Palace Statement Ring retails for £30.
The Commemorative Shortbread Biscuit Tube and Miniature Champagne.
This commemorative roundel features a delicately embroidered crown with the official royal wedding date. It's available at the Historic Royal Palaces shop.
