Royal Wedding Swag.

I love a royal wedding as much as the next girl.  But am I going to be getting up at 4am?  No.  Will I TiVo it? Absolutely.  Kate Middleton is gorgeous and classy, and I wish them all the best in the world.  


But let's talk for a sec about some of the craziness that has occurred since the announcement.  Since that day, there is almost NOTHING that William and Kate's faces are not on.  Por ejemplo...

Shirts

Prince William, the second in line to the throne, and Kate Middleton announced their engagement in November after a seven-year romance that began at university. The wedding, at Westminster Abbey on April 29 in London, is set to be Britain's biggest royal wedding since William's parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, married in 1981. April 29 has been made a public holiday throughout the kingdom.

Ashtrays (because we want to put our cigarettes out on the Prince & new Princess' faces??)

  2. Those teabags absolutely crack me up. I might buy those just for the hilarity factor. You missed one of the best ones though - have you seen the Will and Kate refrigerator!? If you haven't, you need to google it. Holy cow, it's ridiculous.

  4. You know, I really could use a W&K thimble, now that I think of it. ;)

    I love all of the memorabilia! It's too funny! Another blog I read posted an entry like this today- they have W&K condoms called "Crown Jewels." HILARIOUS.
