Day 210 – The Charles and Diana Wedding Spoon

On July 29, 1981, the whole world watched as the heir to the throne of England, His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, married Lady Diana Spencer in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

And this mess of a spoon commemorates that event. Yes, those are portraits of the royal couple, most likely done in oil pastel on the back of a receipt and then shrunk down to fit on the top of the handle. One of a kind!

The back of the spoon gives all the vital details of the big event, juuuust in case you didn’t know who they were from their incredibly lifelike portraits on the front.

Fun Fact: Princess Diana’s train on her dress was 25 feet long—which about four Princess Dianas stacked end to end!
