ROYAL BEARS

Even teddy bears are into the hype of Prince William and Kate Middleton Royal Wedding. Here is the proof…


Prince William
This teddy bear is the William Teddy Bear by the Great British Bear Company. Each handmade plush bear, limited to an edition of 5,000, comes with a replica of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring that is a full one and three-quarter inches in diameter.
William the Teddy Bear stands over 12 inches tall and comes dressed in full “Royal Bear Force” regalia. The bear’s peaked cap is decorated with golden die cast Royal Bear Force wings and is made from authentic Air Force blue fabric. His jacket’s brass buttons and press-pleated pockets make the uniform look just like the real thing. Double black and silver arm bands signify William’s rank of Flight Lieutenant. Across the bear’s chest is a Royal blue sash decorated with silver wings. The wings rest just above the Silver Star pinned to William’s jacket, an honor reserved for serving Royalty. According to the Great British Bear Company, it takes nearly 12 hours to make each “William” uniform, and it is the most detailed and authentic costume the company has ever made. The price is £47.94 (Php 3,422. 22) and each bear comes with a numbered commemorative certificate of authentication.


Catherine

This lovely bear wears a detailed wedding dress and carries felt flowers in paw with Swarovski crystal flower detail. The bear wears a satin sash embroidered with the bride and grooms name and the wedding date.


Catherine
Pure. Noble. Elegant. This bear is the Steiff Prince William and Kate Royal Wedding Teddy Bear. Steiff, the inventors of the teddy bear over 100 years ago, have created a very special bear to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
