The UK is gearing up for its next Royal Wedding. Prince Harry, younger brother of Prince William and the son of Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will marry American Meghan Markle on 19 May.

The ceremony will take place at Windsor Castle, Windsor, England.

The romance has sparked worldwide interest, and – as usual with Royal Weddings – plenty of unofficial merchandise.

One of the more unusual are these Crown Jewels condoms. These ‘artisan-style sheaths’ are – according to their creators, ‘fit for a prince’.

They come in a special souvenir box featuring a portrait of the couple. When opened, the box plays a special musical arrangement of God Save The Queen and The Star Spangled Banner.

Hugh Pomfret, spokesman for Crown Jewels Heritage Condoms, said in a statement about the £10 prophylactics: ‘Like a royal wedding, our luxurious sheaths are a celebration of love. We proudly stand with our American cousins to toast the happy couple and say to lovers everywhere; your Prince will come.’

Prince Harry continues Diana’s work

Harry has become something of a gay pin-up, but has also been applauded for his charity work. He helped to set up the Invictus Games for those injured during military service.

Last October he took the stage at the Attitude Awards in London to accept an award on behalf of his late mother, Princess Diana. Accepting the magazine’s ‘Legacy Award’, he said he and brother William were ‘incredibly proud of what our mother achieved.’

Continuing Diana’s work of promoting HIV awareness, he has also been filmed taking a HIV test. He and Markle made their first public engagement together after becoming engaged last year at a World AIDS Day event in Nottingham.
