Gossip: Prince William, Kate Middleton
Biscuit tins, jars, and china are allowed, says Buckingham Palace. Tea towels are not.
Britons were in an uproar this week as Buckingham Palace banned souvenir tea towels commemorating Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton, said the London Sun. The towels are part of an informal tradition celebrating royal events, but the palace said they are “not in good taste.” Biscuit tins, jars, and china bearing the couple’s image are allowed to be sold. “We want items that are permanent and significant,” said a palace representative.
