ALL THE BONKERS MERCHANDISE YOU CAN BUY TO CELEBRATE HARRY & MEGHAN'S IMPENDING NUPTIALS
On November 27,
Prince Harry and
Meghan Markle announced their engagement
– and so the race
to creating the perfect commemorative item began. The internet is crawling with
merchandise, from phone cases to A-line dresses with their intertwined faces.
You can go highbrow with the
baby blue official china tea set. Or you can go lowbrow, with
life-sized cardboard cutout of the couple, so they can
watch over you while you sleep.
Shopping for merch on the internet is perfectly acceptable. But the real locus of the commemorative merchandise flurry is the town of Windsor, England, where Harry and Markle are getting married. In an article in Marketplace, one woman cited having 10,000 royal commemorative items already; she was shopping in Windsor for more. Windsor is expecting an influx of 100,000 visitors on the day of the wedding, an addition to the 7 million visitors a year Windsor normally hosts.
William Edwards Home created an entire line of fine bone china to commemorate the upcoming royal wedding. The plates and teacups are lined with symbolism. Harry and Markle's initials — H & M — are intertwined in the center. Then, the National Emblems of the United Kingdom, like a rose, thistle, shamrock, and daffodil, line the plate, as well as crowns. This set comes with two teacups and two saucers.
