Top Trumps and character cupcakes among royal wedding souvenirs

A deluge of memorabilia is on offer to encourage royal fans to part with their cash ahead of the May 19 nuptials.

From confectionery and card games to toy characters and carriages, royal fans have a host of wedding souvenirs to choose from.

The latest addition to the commemorative items is a limited-edition deck of Top Trumps cards celebrating Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day.

Former Suits star Ms Markle trumps her royal relatives-to-be in the card game, scoring 10/10 in the People Person category.

She also scores 100/100 in her Big Day rating, and beats the Duchess of Cambridge in the Style stakes, where she also scores 10/10, whereas Kate is awarded a 9.

Even baby Prince Louis has his own card, as do the corgis, as well as the Queen, who comes top of the VIP section, with a 10 rating.

US President Donald Trump has his own card, but scores 0/100 for his Big Day rating after missing out on an invite.

The royal wedding pack costs around £6.99.

Sweet firm PEZ are auctioning off one-of-a-kind Harry and Meghan shaped dispensers for charity on eBay.

The proceeds will be going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and current bids for the collector’s items stand at more than £5,300.

Funko Pop! figures also have a new range of royal characters including Harry, William, Kate and the Queen costing around £9.99 each.

But soon-to-be royal Ms Markle has yet to be added to the line, with her inclusion most likely delayed until after her nuptials.

Harry and Meghan cupcakes are also available galore, including a dozen from The Brilliant Bakers, decorated with cartoons of the bride and groom and the Union flag, for £35.

Choc on Choc launched its large heart-shaped Belgian chocolates, priced at £4.99 each, featuring the happy couple’s faces, with the help of Harry and Meghan lookalikes.

Baked Bean Store is selling an “I love Meghan” keyring for just £2.99, while homemade Harry and Meghan peg dolls dressed in their wedding day splendour can be found for auction on eBay, starting at £5.

For those wanting to combine the royal wedding with a spot of craft-making, UGears has produced a build-your-own wooden model carriage.

The £39.99 kit includes a wooden motor and can be put together without glue.

It is made of sustainable wood and features a newlywed wooden Harry and Meghan in their four-horse drawn carriage.
