Prince William and Kate Middleton – or, should I say, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – are happily married and back to their “normal” lives by now, nearly two weeks since the Royal Wedding; however, the craze over their marriage hasn’t ended, as is evinced by the auctioning off of twenty promotional gift boxes full of “rubbish” collected from the streets surrounding Buckingham Palace shortly after the nuptials occurred.
These promotional gift boxes are attractively branded Perspex constructions filled with commemorative items from candy wrappers to newspapers collected by individuals representing Altitude London, an entertainment venue that is currently auctioning off the boxes to raise money for charity. And as they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Proceeds from the auction will benefit Centrepoint, a charity for the homeless of which Prince William is patron.
The contents of the twenty promotional gift boxes are unique and include Union Jack flags, promotional apparel, and other discarded items left behind by the crowd of spectators who headed to the palace in hopes of catching a glimpse of the royal couple.
