Beer not your thing? How about gin? If you’re lucky enough to be in Windsor on the big day, call into The Queen Charlotte pub (located opposite Windsor Castle) to pick up a bottle of “Gin&’er” commemorative gin. Currently available in 70cl bottles, the gin contains lemon peel, lime flower and ginger; the pub recommends it be served with either tonic/lemon or ginger/orange, alongside a garnish of fresh ginger. The pub has created the gin in conjunction with Oak Taverns Ltd and will auction off bottle number 1 of the limited-edition drink, with the money going to a charity of Prince Harry’s choice.
Fancy a replica of Meghan’s engagement ring?
If you’d like a ring similar to Meghan’s, but don’t have a royal budget, then Argos can help you out! The limited edition ring – aptly named the ‘Meghan Sparkle’ – will set you back £14.99 – get one here. The ring features an emerald-cut cubic zirconia, which is set between two brilliant-cut stones on a yellow gold-plated band. It also comes in a special gift box, which has a drawing of London landmarks and the wedding date.

eBay’s royal wedding offerings
For unique souvenirs, try The Bradford Exchange
While they aren’t available yet, if you have £159 to spare, you can advance reserve porcelain dolls of the bride and groom – the dolls haven’t been finalised yet, as the designers are waiting to see Meghan’s wedding dress and Harry’s choice of outfit, but the designs will be released on 19th May.
Or, if you are an Etsy fan, there’s also random royal-related goods available there
You could complete your wedding party look with Harry and Meghan earrings, or add yet another royal tea towel to your collection. For something a bit different, you could even buy dolls of the happy couple, with Prince Harry depicted in military uniform and Meghan in a wedding dress!
Online retailer Amazon also has a variety of memorabilia
For example, if you want to really party with the happy couple next Saturday, why not purchase a life size cardboard cutout of Harry and Meghan? Or dress up as the newlyweds, finishing off your costumes with ‘his n hers’ masks! Or why not try the whole Royal Family? If you’re having a royal wedding party, there are also decorative toppers for cakes and cupcakes in a variety of styles here, here and here.
There is, of course, a vast array of tea towels on offer – the classic choice for royal memorabilia!
As well as those mentioned above, there are other nice tea towels, including one which benefits a good cause. For Richer, For Poorer, a charity which supports homeless people in the Windsor area, has designed a commemorative tea towel; it costs £25, which is the equivalent of one moving-in pack for someone who is leaving behind their life on the streets. The charity has a wide range of memorabilia, including a t-shirt (which buys clean clothes for someone in need), and a fridge magnet, which will raise money for hot meals.
Northern-Ireland based firm Ulster Weavers have also designed two tea towels to mark the occasion; the contemporary design features black taxis, flowers and bright colours, while the more traditional towel is sage green and gold. For a more unsual royal wedding tea towel, London design company House of Cally have a white and black towel with pictures of Harry and Meghan, as well as playing cards, anchors and even a skull.
