Firms have rushed to cash in on the jubilee. You might have heard of “Ma’amite”.

Selling royal tat went a bit wrong at WH Smith’s. A technical screw-up meant for several hours its tills would only print receipts for one particular item. They read, “The Queen’s Knickers, £5.99”.


A London chef has also made coronation chicken flavoured ice cream. Don’t ask.
