OK, so we’re a little bit gutted to have been missed off the royal guest list.
But it won’t stop us from joining in with the triumphant flag waving and ‘guess the dress’ speculation for the big day.
Should there ever be the perfect opportunity to immerse ourselves in all things British, this is it!
Luckily, thanks to Armstrong Ward’s fabulous True Brits range, you can add a pinch of Union Jack fever to your home without resorting to a commemorative tea towel.
We plan to start the celebrations by raising a specially designed Emma Bridgewater mug of tea to the happy couple.
These lovely pieces are handmade at Emma's base in the Potteries. At just £17.95 you are not just supporting British craftsmanship and industry, but bagging yourself a vessel that holds half a pint of tea. Half a pint? You’ll not need to miss any of the ceremony to brew a second cup!
This Union Jack Bunting is the perfect trimming for a royal wedding get together. Put it up in the garden, the kitchen - anywhere you plan to watch the newly-wed couple emerge hand in hand from the doors of Westminster Abbey.
It comes in a ten metre length, with 28 little flags, for £22.95. After the event, use it to up-style a home office or child’s bedroom.
Quietly fly the flag for Great Britishness by inviting this Union Jack Puppy Door Stop, priced at £16.95, into your home. His fun look will brighten any room and he will gladly hold the door open whenever you pass by - what a true English gent!
Give kids a special memento of the day with this Wicked Union Jack Wigwam, priced at £95. It’s easy to assemble, has a canvas base and can be used indoors and out. Just the ticket to keep your little adventurers quiet while you soak up the details of that dress!
