Get the cucumber sandwiches and the white wine spritzers ready… The biggest event of 2018 is finally upon us (sorry not sorry #beychella): The wedding between everyone’s favourite flame-haired royal Prince Harry and American actress-turned-real-life princess Meghan Markle will go down this Saturday, May 19, in Windsor. And even if your invite got lost in the post, we suggest you embrace the occasion and eat, drink and dance the Nutbush like you’re there – oh, and don’t forget to treat yourself to a little wedding favour…

 

 

1. A commemorative-cuppa mug

Because there’s nothing more British than having a cup of English Breakfast while you reminisce about your favourite royal wedding moments…

 

2. A totally-nailed-your-wedding-outfit T-shirt

The advantage of not getting an official invite? You don’t have to worry about splurging on an exy designer dress and an even more expensive hat.

 

3. A not-at-all-jealous art print

If anyone asks, you just weren’t ready for the struggles of such a public life and you’re really, really, really happy for his second choice, Meghan.

 

4. A #HARKLE2018 jumper

Because everyone loves a good wedding hashtag – and, well, if Hazza and Megs aren’t telling all their mates to #HARKLE2018, they’re missing out.

 

5. A highly-useful souvenir tea towel  

Where were you when HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot? Probably mopping up a champagne spill from your tipsy wedding party guest.

 

6. A ‘royal flush’ deck of cards

This pack hasn’t yet been updated for our newlyweds, but the rest of the fam is here and ready to play (hello, Charles and Cammy!)…

 

7. A jumper that says what we’re all thinking

If you’re now regretting all those hours you spend finessing your royal wave in princess preparation, what can we say? We feel your pain.

 

8. A this-is-totally-a-fairytale tee 

We’re picturing Meghan and her mum bunkering down in a fancy Windsor hotel wearing these matching tees and toasting her modern fairytale.
