Day 172 – The Teen Prince William Spoon

I think I speak for everyone when I say that I’m thankful that I did not have to suffer through having a photo of me during my awkward teenage years immortalized on a horrible, gold tone, electroplated souvenir spoon like poor Prince William, here. 

Through some fancy Google image searching, I managed to find the original photo they used at the top. It was taken at an August 16, 1997 photocall with his father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince Harry, at the family’s residence in Balmoral, Scotland. William was 15 years old.
The spoon appears to commemorate the day of his birth, June 21, 1982. Happy Birthday, Wills!

Day 82 – The 1983 Royal Tour Spoon

In March 1983, Princess Diana and Prince Charles toured Australia and New Zealand with then 1-year-old Prince William.

To celebrate their visit, someone tried to make a spoon.

And oh, how they failed. The words “Royal Tour 1983” aren’t even centered in the bowl and I’m pretty sure that’s a cartoon drawing of Prince Charles at the top.
