Nothing says ‘let’s celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding’ more than some royal wedding souvenirs like transatlantic-themed sausages, a Meghan Markle swimsuit or a reusable water bottle donning a royal family-inspired hat, right?
From royal teddy bears worth hundreds of English pounds to a ‘Sparkle like Markle’ orb balloon, this list of royal wedding merchandise and souvenirs — released just in time for the royal wedding on May 19 — really has it all.
The tastiest royal wedding souvenirs
Sausage maker HECK, based in Yorkshire, England, created a special recipe to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s transatlantic union. As a nod to Markle’s American background and Harry’s fiery red locks, HECK’s limited-edition ‘Majestic’ sausage combines British pork shoulder with American mustard and sweet ginger. The result is both gluten-free and dairy-free.
Available from HECK for £2 ($2.70) per 400g pack
‘Markle and Spencer’ beer
CraftedCans.com has a limited edition royal wedding-themed IPA named Markle & Spencer (Spencer after Prince Harry’s maternal heritage). The craft beer — the perfect way to toast the happy couple — is available for £3 ($4) a can.

A royal ginger chocolate bar
The Grown Up Chocolate Company, based in Harlow, England, is commemorating Harry and Meghan’s big day with a limited-edition ginger (yes, another nod to Harry’s hair) and blueberry flavored chocolate bar, described as “the perfect accompaniment to any royal wedding celebrations.”

Harry and Meghan donuts
North London bakery Dunn’s Bakery created a special line of doughnuts to commemorate the royal wedding (as well as the U.K.’s National Doughnut Week).

Proceeds from every doughnut sold will be donated to The Children’s Trust, the U.K.’s leading charity for children with brain injury and neuro-disability.
