Wills and Kate memorial plates

Crockery rarely makes an appearance on the CR blog. But with a royal wedding set for next year, we’ll make an exception for KK Outlet’s recently unveilved ‘unofficial’ Wills and Kate souvenir plates…

With only four months to go until the big day, royal wedding fever has already gripped parts of the creative community – largely those involved in ceramics, unsurprisingly, as Majesty magazine reveals. (Just the $70 for the ‘tankard’ then.)

And in an attempt to combat the tidal wave of tack that accompanies any decent royal wedding the Lord Chamberlain, Earl Peel, has already issued a formal memorandum indicating that tea towels, for one, are right out.

So London-based creative agency KK Outlet decided to create some of their own souvenir plates for the more design-conscious fans of British royalty.

Many of the sentiments may not be wholly endorsed by The Palace, but we love the fact that April 29 2011 is already proving to be a special day for millions of fans of that other UK institution: the public holiday.

The plates will be available to purchase from KK Outlet from January 15. See kkoutlet.com.
