That means there’s potentially big business in the world of wedding memorabilia and there really are no limits to the number of different celebratory nick-nacks that can feature the duo’s beaming faces. For fans of the happy couple, looking to commemorate their big day with something a little more exciting than the official 22-carat gold bone china collection, here are some of the quirkiest souvenirs out there.
It’s hard to imagine the process that led to these royal rubbers actually ending up on sale, but here they are in all their glory. When opened, the packet plays a mash-up of ‘God Save The Queen’ and ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, cementing that special cross-Atlantic relationship. ‘Your prince will come’ promises the box, but a word of warning: these are for novelty purposes only.
