From sausages to cars, the entire world has gone crazy for weird Prince Harry and Meghan Markle royal wedding memorabilia. Here are 11 things you can buy to commemorate the big day.
Ed Sheeran and Meghan Markel plate: Whilst they’re both sporting the same shade of hair colour, Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry have a few differences between them. Most notably that Ed Sheeran isn’t a prince of England. Still this is perhaps a nice nod to red haired solidarity.
Beer: If you’re attending a royal wedding themed party and have your royal garms sorted out why not take it a step further and come with a matching beer. ‘Harry and Meghan’s Windsor Knot’ is a blend of both British and American hops made in honour of the big day.
Colouring book: This colouring book is a great way to put your own twist on the royal wedding whilst waiting for the real thing to start. Disagree with the colour of Meghan’s dress or Harry’s suit? Then change the colour and have it your way.
Life sized cut-outs: Feeling lonely and want some company? Want to offer some advice to the bride and groom? Want to let them watch you sleep? Why not buy these life sized cut-outs of Harry and Meghan.
Marmite: Almost as much of a British staple as the Royal family themselves, this spread has to no surprise been unofficially adapted into royal wedding memorabilia. Fancy a ‘Meghan’ or ‘Harry Yeast Extract’? Then look no further.
Sausage: Again another food related one but this time something meatier. These sausages, available from Sainsbury’s, are “Sweet ginger and American mustard” flavoured whilst also being dairy and gluten free.
Face Masks: Whilst you wont look quite as good wearing these as the couple themselves you can still pretend. Have a royal wedding themed party to go to? Go as the grand couple themselves. Want to freak out some people on the streets? Do it as the grand couple themselves.
Whisky: Want something stronger then beer to toast the happy couple? Well the English Whisky Company, based at Roudham, has the perfect thing for you in the form of a limited-edition whisky. The bottle is hand engraved with a picture of the royal couple, as well as the date of their wedding. Cheers!
Condoms: The makers of these condoms went in the obvious direction here given its brand was already named Crown Jewels. Scoring a pun with its company name, they also included the wishful tagline “your prince will come”. For that extra touch you’ll hear both God Save The Queen and The Star Spangled Banner as you prise open the box.
Special edition Mini Cooper: The most expensive item on this list and the most exclusive is the iconic Britmobile itself. The roof of it has been decked out with both the American and British flag’s whilst also having been inscribed with ‘Harry loves Meghan’ and on the glove box reads ‘All you need is love’. This one will be a little bit harder to get than the cardboard cut outs though and with only one being made you’ll have to bid on it in an auction hosted by one the couple’s favourite charities.
Replica Engagement ring: So now that you’ve got the sausages, marmite, Mini Cooper, face masks, condoms, cardboard cut outs, beer and colouring book you just need to finally put a ring on it. Whilst you won’t get real diamonds for the $23 (£17) cost of the ring you will get a life sized replica to top of your royal wedding memorabilia.
