Prince William and Kate Middleton's official wedding china goes on sale

21 DECEMBER 2010

The countdown to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding is well underway.

Following the couple's first post-engagement public outing this week comes the news that a range of commemorative china created by the Royal Collection to mark their upcoming nuptials has gone on sale.

Given the seal of approval by the couple themselves, the selection includes a tankard (£35), an eight-inch plate (£40), and a pill box (£25) in fine bone china.





Each piece is decorated with the couple's intertwined initials in gold and silver, and a pattern of doves, white ribbons and hearts set against a pale-grey striped background.

William's coronet appears above the initials and written in a circle are the words: "To celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton 29th April 2011".

Profits from the china, which was handmade in Stoke-on-Trent, will go towards the upkeep of the Royal Collection, which cares for the Queen's art collection and organises public exhibitions.

It is now on sale through the Royal Collection website and in official souvenir shops at the royal palaces and residences.
