Mr. Church said that the demand for commemorative items, both in the UK and abroad, was increasing every day before the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, April 29 memories proving particularly popular in America as well as Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
He said: “The sales figures are well above six figures and toward fast seven figures.”
Mr. Church responded to a survey by InvisibleHand online shopping site found eight out of ten Britons (83 percent) would not buy souvenirs of the royal wedding, almost a quarter of what it describes as “a waste of money” and one in six believes that “beyond” sticky.
He said: “If it is true only 17 percent are buying then we are lucky that you are spending too much with us.”
He added: “It is unfortunate that some people are embarrassed to buy something for the actual wedding and sometimes do not like to admit it, because I think there is something distasteful about it, but history shows that many more people who say that will.
“We are expecting an increase particularly important after the wedding because, as we realized years ago at the wedding of Diana and Prince Charles, the skeptical members of the public to see on TV with friends and neighbors say themselves: “It’s not so bad after all, I have a few cups for children.”
“We know things like the general election polls that people do not always tell the truth in these surveys.”
Mr. Church said the biggest indicator of the country’s attitude towards the Royal Wedding, viewing figures for the same day.
He said: “For some people the memories of the royal wedding would be” a waste of money “and that’s OK. If you want something and buys it is a waste of money. But if you buy something and not is.
“People say that the Royal wedding favors are of no value, but have a sentimental value and give pleasure to many people.
“Our view is that people should buy things because they like and want them, not as a potential investment.”
