Now don't get me wrong, I adore Kate, but I spend more time thinking about the House of Pies than about the House of Windsor. I do, however, appreciate a family that documents all its major milestones in porcelain. My favorite source for these fancy yet tacky souvenirs is the Royal Collection Shop. Over the years, I've bought more plates, tankards, and bric-a-brac emblazoned with shiny crowns and shiny faces than I care to admit. In the mornings, I often get a caffeine-fueled ego boost from this cup.
Long may I reign.
I never got around to buying a Royal Wedding plate because I was too busy
