Royal wedding souvenirs have been filling shelves quicker than you can say “I do”.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding is proving a bonanza for souvenir makers.
Chinese factories are whirring into production, churning out royal memorabilia for the event.
Asda was first off the block with a £5 commemorative mug and lines of souvenir tea towels, plates, spoons, key rings, mobile phone holders, champagne flutes, coffee tables and even condoms have followed.
it’s a mug’s game, but mugs should note that all this tat is being made in such high numbers that they’re hardly worth collecting for their future value.
Royal memorabilia has to stretch back to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s 1947 wedding to hold much worth, experts say. Long may thesse souvenirs collect dust, then, writes Rebecca Kent.
