Prince William Marries

THE one thing that remains unbroken from Princess Diana’s wedding to Prince Charles is our £1.20 mug bearing the smiling images of the newlyweds.

What hopes and dreams we had back then. But the complementary silver jubilee and golden jubilee wedding cups would not complete an enviable set.

That was then. And today we read with no little excitement that a range of Prince William and Kate Middleton mugs are in a warehouse.

As the Express reports, Woolworths has produced a range of 100,000 Wills and Kate wedding souvenirs. The collection features mugs, thimbles, tea towels, spoons, slippers, computer mouse mats and mobile phone covers.

The 12,000 plates bearing the couple’s united image carry the legend: “Celebrating the Royal Marriage of William and Kate.”

The only thing left to do is to get the couple married. “JUST GIVE US A DATE KATE,” says the Mirror’s headline.

When will it be? Stephen Robertson, marketing director at Woolworths, thinks it could be any day. “There was a massive demand for products when Charles and Camilla got married. But because of their short engagement we didn’t have enough time to design, manufacture and retail our products. This time we’ll be ready.”

Seems a sensible move. Of course, should Wills and Kate break up, these item will become yet more valuable, reminders of what might he been as Wills steps down the aisle with a Bulgarian-born lap-dancer and Kate marries Mohamed Al Fayed…
