LONDON (AP) – Fans of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can start building their collections of royal wedding memorabilia now. The approved commemorative china marking the couple’s May 19 wedding went on sale Friday.

The collection uses cornflower blue with white detailing and a gold monogram of the bride and groom’s initials.

The design also references the couple’s wedding venue at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The decorative border is based on the ironwork of the 13th-century chapel door.

Harry and Markle are making a trip to Northern Ireland as part of their prewedding tour of the United Kingdom.

The china is finished in 22 karat gold. It was made by hand in Stoke-on-Trent, 160 miles northwest of London, using traditional methods.

Profits go to the Royal Collection Trust charity.
