I wouldn’t call myself an ardent Royalist but I do love a bit of celebratory memorabilia – my 1981 Royal Wedding mugs are a treasured possession, and I was jubilant when sent the the target=”_blank”>Harvey Nichols Diamond Jubilee Lunch Box. So I was more than happy to see M&S launch a series of rather lovely commemorative tins last year to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee (the ones left and right above.)
And then imagine my glee when I saw the royal Corgi one (centre), which celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. (There are also Royal Baby Commemorative tins, but I have zero interest in these).
Best of all they are just six of your English pounds AND they each contain LOTS of delicious all butter shortbread petticoat tails. I would have bought them without the biccies but, frankly, a petticoat tail never goes amiss in this household. They are also a rather good size: just right for a 7″ Victoria sponge
