Royal Wedding Gnomes set to go on sale at B&Q. The Royal Wedding is bringing out some oddities, including a pair of gnomes ath B&Q hopes is a success. They are expected to go on sale in B&Q stores mid-April before Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot in marriage.
The wedding gnomes do not feature the young royal couple. While the male “patriotic garden ornament” has a blue suit on, she is wearing a wedding dress - both are topped off with union flag pointy hats. Call it odd or part of a growing memorabilia category in the strange collection.
However, B&Q are serious about these new wedding items. “We expect demand for the gnomes to be very high as royal items are always sought after as a collectible item,” a spokesperson said. The plan to cash in before the royal event.
“While some people may turn their nose up at gnomes thinking they’re a little kitsch we feel there is room for humour in everyone’s lives, and the garden should be no exception,” the spokesperson added. It is possible that these garden additions could surprise everyone on the Antiques Roadshow. This could be good or bad: Someone might say “these wonderful these marked the occasion for Prince William and Kate MIddlton,” or, someone could say, “what were those people thinking back in 2011?”
