William and Catherine: The top-five worst memorabilia

I would like to invite you to the wedding of  his Royal Highness Prince William of Wales, K.G. with Miss. Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey on Friday 29th April, 2011, at 11am. Please find your invitation attached to this post. Just print it out, cut round the edges and present at the door… Ah, how democratic that would be! Oh well, I suppose the uninvited will have to make do with some of the “tasteful” memorabilia now available online, in your local shops or down the market.

Why not buy a replica Kate Middleton Engagement Ring? This solid sterling silver, with a simulated sapphire at its center and 14 flawless simulated diamonds is just the thing to show off at your local Wills and Cate street party! A snip at $59.99.

 Time to lie back and think of England “To celebrate the engagement of Prince William of Wales to Ms. Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, Crown Jewels [Condoms of Distinction] has commissioned a unique heritage edition Royal Wedding Souvenir boîte de capotes.

Combining the strength of a Prince with the yielding sensitivity of a Princess-to-be, Crown Jewels condoms promise a royal union of pleasure. Truly a King amongst Condoms”.  Unfortunately, these have been so popular, the company is currently out of   stock…

How about an old favourite, the Tea Towel:

Finally, the best gift of all. Will and Kate teabags. These were designed by Donkey Creative Lab in Germany. For just €4.95, you get 2 tea bags in an envelope.

As they say, “tea is always a great gift – no matter what occasion. And with the appropriate greeting card, it is elegantly framed for any event”.

Now you can teabag both of them to your heart’s content… Enjoy!

    I never stopped being amazed at what people come up with to make money, I just can’t get over the prices of these things, it’s astonishing. I had a good laugh at the condoms, and to think they sold out, that made me laugh even harder. 🙂
