Royal wedding fever

With the royal wedding only two weeks away, the shops are awash with William and Kate memorabilia. And its not merely the preserve of tacky tourist outlets either – top designers have created some brilliant products from the tongue-in-cheek to the totally serious.

From the Simon Farrar tote bag to this brilliant print by a friend of ours, James Brown, you too can bag yourself a little bit of royal wedding nostalgia while still retaining your design credentials. I love the cup and saucer, available at Liberty.

As for the royal wedding mug from Guandong Enterprises, featuring the wrong prince… well, I leave it up to you to decide if this is a genuine mistake by a clueless Chinese exporter or a clever design gimmick… the debate rages on. Either way, it’s all good fun.

Now, where did I leave my invitation?
