Here’s All the Crazy Stuff You Can Purchase at the Royal Gift Shop
When it comes to living like royalty, only the best will do. And for most of us (unless you’re Meghan Markle) the closest we’ll ever get to living like a royal is to shop like one.
Luckily for royal fans everywhere the Windsor family has a rather well-stocked and expansive gift shop available online. Not only that, but the shop itself also has a flourishing social media presence to show off the goods.
For example, if you want to serve high tea and pretend you’re the Duchess of Cambridge for the day then you simply must purchase one of the shop’s teapots, which range in price from around $175 to $300.
The most expensive pot was commissioned by Buckingham Palace to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday on Thursday, April 21, 2016.
As the site described the pot is made “entirely by hand by our skilled artisans in Stoke-on-Trent using traditional methods unchanged for over 250 years, using English fine bone china, highly regarded around the world for its whiteness, fineness and delicacy. Finished with 22 carat gold.”
Of course, no pot would be complete without a cup and saucer, so go ahead and purchase the Queen Victoria and Prince Albert set, which will set you back $125 per set. The cup and saucer are both intricately designed and are based on a Worcester plate from the Royal Collection made in 1840.
Looking for something a bit more lavish? Why not purchase the Coronation Necklace for $200, which was inspired by the original necklace made in 1858 by House of Garrard for Queen Victoria, according to an Instagram post by the shop. The necklace was worn at the coronations of Queen Alexandra in 1901, Queen Mary in 1911 and Her Majesty The Queen in 1953.
Or if you’re on the hunt for a small, but still highly royal gift, pick up a tiny stuffed corgi, just like the ones the Queen has in real life. The plush pup is inspired by the animal most famously associated with Her Majesty The Queen and a favorite breed of the Royal Family since 1933.
The shop has a plethora of other items worth perusing and adding to your shopping cart. So splurge a little and feel like a royal, even if it’s just during your online checkout.
