Reading the two free newspapers on my way in and out of central London every day has me right up to speed with the royal family. I know more about Kate Middleton (Prince William’s soon-to-be missus) than I ever thought I would. I checked out the wedding china collection online today — they do a china series for each royal wedding — and was quite pleasantly surprised.

Anyone else kinda digging the royal wedding goodies? No? Just me?
