Sure, there are a few souvenirs coming out of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding that are worth picking up, like the royal tea cups, mugs, and plates. However, some so-called collectibles are taking things a bit further, like these bathing suits showcasing Meghan and Harry’s faces.
The swimsuits, created by Bags of Love, feature the royals' faces stretched from top to bottom across the suit. “This gorgeous one-piece is flattering on any figure," the site says. We guess that's one way to look at it.
Sure, the suit itself seems to be a flattering enough cut, but the photo of Harry emblazoned across the front is … well, a lot. But Bags of Love's intentions are good, according to their public relations manager, Ekaterina Vankova. “Based here, in London, we fully support [the] royal heir,” she told HuffPost. “We also believe our choice of placement [for] Harry’s beard reflects our thoughts on accepting the body too, on accepting who you are.”
If Harry and Meghan aren't your cup of tea, the royal couple swimsuits are just an example of how the company can customize a suit using any photo you desire. (So yes, you can get that Prince Charles suit you've been silently wishing for.)
“Nothing like printing the face of a Prince or Duchess on a swimming costume and rocking it proudly on the beach,” Vankova said.
Here’s how it works: Customers upload their own photos — be it a royal face or their own face— then simply click “purchase.” According to Bags of Love, it takes about two days for a suit to be made and shipped right to your door. So really, if you ordered right now, you could have it in time for their wedding on May 19 for about $51. A small price to pay to feel like royalty.
