As William & Kate fever sweeps the nation, it was only a matter of time before we started to see the commemorative plates, tea towels, t-shirts – you name it. But little did we know that so much of it would be so stylish, or so funny.
Among our favourites to date – these great mugs by artist and film-maker Sarah Cole for Cole of London. "William and Kate are young, modern and human and my drawings reflect this. I definitely didn't want to portray them as distant and stuffy, dressed in royal regalia," says Sarah.
Also nominated in the Best Alternative Royal Wedding Memorabilia category – the 'It should have been me' plate (pictured) and its noteworthy tongue-in-cheek stable mates the 'Thanks for the free day off' and 'Kate's Wedding List' alternatives, all available to pre-order (for March delivery) at Hunkydory Home.
According to the last of these, Kate's list apparently includes not only a toaster and throw cushions, but also a 'new tiara' and 'Oxfordshire'.
The plates are £20 each and come with stand to display them proudly/ironically as the big day approaches.
