Chances are you were among the millions of people who watched the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last Saturday (May 19, 2018) on TV.
It goes without saying that the wedding at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle was a coveted affair that many people wished they had been invited to.
But fret not, you can own royal wedding memorabilia thanks to the wonders of the Internet.
You can find the most random things online. And eBay is no exception.
Here’s a look at some of the memorabilia that caught our attention:
1. KFC’s Royal Wedding Bucket
Yes, you read that right!
KFC designed a commemorative bucket to celebrate Harry and Meghan’s big day on May 19.
According to Mashable, Prince Harry got down on one knee while the couple was cooking a roast chicken.
“When we discovered Prince Harry proposed over a roast chicken, we simply had to show our support for the big occasion,” a KFC spokesperson commented in a statement emailed to Mashable.
The Royal Wedding Bucket, as it’s been named, features “a bespoke crest” with a “modern KFC twist”.
“Featuring resplendent gold flourishes, the bucket is embellished with a classic regal crest, proudly adorned with both British and American flags,” according to KFC.
It is understood that only a limited number of buckets were made available from KFC’s Windsor branch on Dedworth road.
The last time I checked on eBay, I saw bids for one of these buckets going as high as US$1,000.
2. ‘Marry Me Harry’ t-shirts
“How can those women be wearing such a shirt?”
That was one of my friends exclaimed when she saw on TV a group of women wearing ‘Marry Me Harry’ t-shirts waving at the royal couple.
Personally, I thought it was harmless fun.
According to a report by OK!, Asda’s own clothing range, George, launched a range of unique slogan t-shirts to mark the regal data.
Besides the ‘Marry Me Harry’ slogan, you could also get your hands on t-shirts with a slogan saying ‘When Harry Met Meghan’. They were being sold for around US$5 at Asda.
However, the last time I checked on eBay, these shirts were fetching prices of around US$40.
3. Royal cereal
