PHOTOS & VIDEO: Prince William & Kate Middleton Souvenirs Hit The Market

The first official souvenirs celebrating the union of Prince William and Kate Middleton — a tankard, plate and pill box made of fine china — hit the market Monday, has learned.

The items, which do not show their faces, come bearing their initials, instead. The couple approved all the items, which will be sold at the palaces in England, as well as online.

“The Royal Collection has been working on the design since around the time of the engagement — it’s a very fast moving process,” the prince’s office said.

The items aren’t exactly cheap: the plate is selling for $62, the pillbox for $38, and the tankard for $54.

Profits from the collectibles will be donated to the charity that curates the royal family’s artworks, known as the Royal Collection.

The couple have been an item nearly ten years, as they met as students at Scotland’s St. Andrew’s University back in 2001.

As previously reported, Prince William and Kate Middleton are slated to get married April 29, 2011 at the historic English church, Westminster Abbey.
