The official Commemorative Royal Wedding shopping bag

Imagine my pure delight when I got home to find a package from Jolly Old England! My blog friend, Sarah, who once lived in Vancouver, but now lives in the UK, sent it over to me! It’s very official. Look at the tag on it!

I cannot wait to use my shopping bag at my next trip to the grocery store. I’ll be taking my lunch to work in this on Monday, I can tell you that. Who wouldn’t want to have their lunch with this grinny photo?

Me, that’s who. “Wills, care for half my peanut butter sandwich? Here you go!” I know! I’m generous that way!

Not only did Sarah send me this bag (Wewt!) but she also sent me an official Royal Wedding newspaper called The Times – wait. Maybe it’s not the Official Wedding newspaper, but the official newspaper of London. Either way, the whole thing is filled with happy wedding things.

Pippa and Kate! So good to see you again! I’ve missed you both!

And, inside The Times, the official Order of Service.

This souvenir guide includes the schedule of the whole day. Did you know they shut down all the nearby streets at 6:30 am on the wedding day? They also included when the Queen was arriving, what time the official photos would be taken and all the lyrics for all the hymns that were sung at the wedding. And that reminds me of when Will told Kate she looked beautiful and I felt all shmoopy.

Also included in the souvenir insert, a lovely message from the couple (also their engagement photos. Adorbz):

We are both so delighted that you are able to join us in celebrating what we hope will be one of the happiest days of our lives. The affection shown to us by so many people during our engagement has been incredibly moving, and has touched us both deeply. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone most sincerely for their kindness.

AWWW. That was a great day. Those two are classy.

Thank you so much, Sarah! I love my presents! Oh…and she also sent me an Olympics-related gift. I’ll show you that later.

*love! it!*

    SO glad you love your gift – I was worried you would think the bag was beyond cutely kitsch and into tacky ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unfortunately I’ve never lived in Vancouver – I wish! Only visited.
