From mugs to biscuits, souvenirs are being produced to celebrate marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
From the days of Queen Victoria, memorabilia marking the anniversaries and weddings of the royal family have been popular. The public loved the monarchy and there was a huge demand for plates and cups to be produced on a large scale.
The Royal Family continue that tradition today, a new range being produced for the forthcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Produced by the Royal Collection Trust, mugs, plates and pillboxes have an exclusive design in white and cornflower blue with a monogram of the couple’s initials at its centre, tied together with white ribbons and topped with the coronet of Prince Harry. The border has been inspired by the ironwork of the Gilbertus door of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, where the couple will marry on 19 May 2018.
Each item is made in Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, following 250-year-old techniques. The china is hand-finished with 22-carat gold, in suitably luxurious style.
The range includes a decorative miniature coffee mug, coffee mug, pillbox, tankard and plate. Sadly, there are no tea cups. Yet.
If you’re wondering what to put on those plates, we’ve found the perfect royal wedding souvenir biscuits here.
