If you're cynical about love stories, I don't blame you. I have no reason to be salty about fairytale romances — I'm in a happy relationship, and my parents are still disgustingly in love after nearly 30 years together — but I'm a natural skeptic. But even though I'm a party pooper when it comes to happily-ever-after stories, I make an exception for the royal family — they can do no wrong in my eyes. I just found out you can already order products with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's faces on them, and I'm 100 percent on board.
I'm American and have no connection to the United Kingdom, but I skipped class in high school to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011. If you're tempted to cancel all of your plans to watch Harry and Meghan's royal nuptials in May, I'm on your side. Every royal event is extravagant AF and worth watching, but Markle is a woman of color with a decidedly normal background, which makes it easier for many of us to identify with her. It's no surprise that people immediately made products with her and Harry's faces after the engagement was announced — it's hard to not love them. These are a few of my favorites.

May 19, 2018 should be an international holiday, but since it's not, most of us will have things to do that day. The good news: It's a Saturday, so you have the opportunity to host a royal wedding watch party.
This illustration can be downloaded and printed on pretty much anything, and I'm kind of obsessed with it. If you want to show the world that your love for Harry and Meghan is real, printing a canvas with their faces is a foolproof way to do so.

I'm not classy enough to drink my alcohol out of ceramic beer steins, so this drinkware feels like it's completely out of my league. If you're a more put-together individual than I am, you could totally get away with this. As we get closer to the royal wedding, the number of products dedicated to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will only increase. You might as well get ahead of the crowd.
