If you weren’t lucky enough to attend the royal wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry or catch it on TV, you can still commemorate it. How you ask? With a KFC commemorative porcelain bucket.
According to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry proposed to her over a roast chicken dinner. While that’s not exactly the same as a bucket of KFC, the pair’s poultry preference inspired the brand to come up with its own tribute. That’s why KFC is releasing 25 Kentucky Fine China buckets; a collaboration with agency Iris, the porcelain bucket is a marriage between English tradition and the flavour of the American South.
The Kentucky Fine China bucket
The body of the Kentucky Fine China bucket is handcrafted by English pottery maker Milton China. It was made with fine bone china and its rim is made with 22-carat gold. As always, the decoration of the bucket also brandishes the KFC logo and an illustration of Colonel Sanders. And the back sports a special crest of a hen with a US flag and a rooster with a UK flag.
While you might think it’s too luxurious to hold greasy fried chicken, it’ll definitely immortalize your love for KFC‘s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Unfortunately, these Kentucky Fine China buckets were handed out to some of KFC’s most loyal Colonel Club UK members.
On the royal wedding day itself, KFC will also made 50 limited edition, specially-designed cardboard buckets available from its Windsor restaurant. If a KFC bucket isn’t your way of commemorating the royal wedding, several other brands have released limited edition tchotchkes, hashtags and other wedding-inspired products.
