The royal wedding is coming up this Saturday. Everyone is talking about it, but lots of companies have also been capitalizing on it, selling ‘love’ and ‘wedding’ versions of things. There are some things like commemorative stamps and plates that I also remember from Charles and Diana’s wedding, but some are uniquely Swedish.
Here are some favourites:
After going for a training paddle, we are planning to spend the wedding day having a luncheon at our friends eating very Swedish things and watching the wedding on TV. None of us are royalists, but I think we are all looking to get some fun out of the event anyway. If the bakeries are out of princesstartas, I will whip up a yellow sponge that we can eat with strawberries and cream.
