Unofficial estimates suggest that tourism and retail related to the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton – soon to be Princess Catherine – should bring about half a billion euros.

There are the traditional china plates and mugs in souvenir shops.

And there are the £100 (113 euros) figurines of Kate and William.

Bookshops are trying to cash in on the royal books with special stands:

High-end shop Fortnum & Mason offers a variety of goodies, from rose petal jelly to wooden puzzles and royal memoirs
