As anticipation for this weekend's royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reaches astonishing new heights, Brits may want to take a step back and ponder whether, perhaps, it has all gone too far. Or, as one royal condom company suggests, lie back and think of England.
The list of merchandise on offer is mind-boggling: life-size cardboard cutouts, paper dolls, socks, mugs, earrings, cupcake toppers and, er, Harry and Meghan swimsuits.
British jewelers are using the slogan "Sparkle Like Markle" to sell diamonds, while supermarket chain Sainsbury's is selling replicas of Meghan's engagement ring for £5 ($7). Love it or hate it, customers can now pick up personalized jars of Marmite, which were recently spotted on sale in Windsor.
And then there are the commemorative condoms.
Yes, to mark the historic event, Crown Jewels Condoms have come up with a unique product that has taken the world (and the bedroom) by storm.
Described as "fit for a Prince," the condoms are delivered in what one can describe only as truly patriotic packaging. Once the lid (which features a portrait of Harry and Meghan) is lifted, the souvenir case plays the tune of "God Save the Queen" and "The Star Spangled-Banner." Because nothing says transatlantic wedding quite like two national anthems and regal prophylactics.
"We wanted to mark the occasion in an unusual way," said Hugh Pomfret, founder of Crown Jewels Heritage Condoms. Pomfret describes his creation as "novelty meeting luxury."
"In 10 years' time, when people look back, they'll pass over the souvenir mugs and the tea towels. It's the condoms that they'll remember. They'll provide pleasure for years to come," he told The Washington Post.
All over Britain, pubs and bars are hanging up Union Jacks and bunting. They have also extended their hours to allow for more drinking time. Punters can cheer the happy couple until 1 a.m.
As well as selling "Princess" rucksacks and party hats, retailers are also offering "Marry Me Harry" T-shirts for those with a soft spot for the ginger-haired prince.
