Royal Wedding Souvenirs
WILL & KATE PIZZA
Dough, it's come to this: To commemorate the royal wedding, Papa John's has created a Prince William and Kate Middleton pizza, using ingredients such as mushrooms, salami and peppers to create a mosaic of the couple's likeness. Since you can't put a price on art or a good slice, the work-intensive pie will be delivered to a contest winner in the U.K.
ONLINE WEDDING GAME
It's highly unlikely Prince William will be making a mad dash to the altar on April 29. But you can still have a little fun at the young royal's expense with Nickelodeon's Royal Wedding Run game, in which William has to dodge exes and the paparazzi to get himself to Westminster Abbey in the nick of time.

A ROYAL TIPPLE
OFFICIAL WEDDING CHINA
If coins aren't your thing, there's always commemorative wedding crockery. Created by the Royal Collection, the Royal Wedding range is one of the few souvenirs that doesn't feature images of Prince William and Kate. Instead, the English fine bone china is patterned with hearts, white ribbons and doves – yes, tasteful enough to serve the Pope – or the Queen.
To buy: £20 and up at the Royal Collection Shop
REPLICA ENGAGEMENT RING
ROYAL CARD GAME
As if you didn't already know, a royal wedding is definitely in the cards for April 29. In advance of the big day, Winning Moves UK, the company that makes the popular British card game Top Trumps, created The Royal Wedding game. Leading the pack? You guessed it, princess-to-be Kate Middleton.
The inscription on the mug, "The fairytale romantic union of all the centuries," certainly captures the joyous mood of the royal wedding. The only glitch? The souvenir features the wrong Prince (Harry!) next to Kate. Despite this royal gaffe, the mug is still for sale to any and all takers with a PayPal account.
