Royal Souvenirs Flying Off the Shelves Ahead of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Wedding
Royal mementos are especially popular among American tourists.
Who doesn’t love souvenirs?
From playing cards to magnets, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Windsor Castle trinkets are flying off the shelves, less a month ahead of the royal wedding.
"Souvenirs of course are going out as if there’s no tomorrow," said Derek Prime, owner of the King & Queen Gift Shop in Windsor. "Mugs are the most favorite item because you can use it for tea, coffee — it’s got a use."
While people around the globe are shopping for royal souvenirs — including Canadian Gina Boker, who bought a Meghan and Harry magnet for her fridge — the keepsakes are gaining special attention from American tourists.
"She’s on American television, and of course we've watched Harry’s antics since he was born," said Linda Peele McGavin, of Virginia. "I got up in the middle of the night to watch Princess Diana marry Prince Charles and I think we will be having a little party to watch Meghan and Harry get married too."
She told APTN that she purchased a tiny porcelain cup that bore the letters "H" and "M" — the initials of the bride and the groom.
