It’s been less than 24 hours since Prince William of Britain and Kate Middleton announced that they were engaged. The Royal Wedding is being planned for the spring or summer of next year in London.
This means, of course, that you only have a limited amount of time to get the couple a gift. It’s hard to know what to get a prince and his soon to be bride; after all. they are royalty. It’s not like they don’t already have hundreds of years worth of things packed away in castles and manor houses all over the place. But let’s pretend that the fear of possibly providing the young couple with yet another set of silver and malachite asparagus tongs doesn’t keep you from buying them anyway. Now you just have to package up the present and send it off, across the vast, deep, and shark-infested expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, through the challenging, complex customs regulations of the UK and finally to Prince William and Kate’s address.
No problem, right? Not necessarily. It doesn’t matter if you’re sending a gift to the crown heads of Europe or a couple you actually know, shipping wedding presents internationally can be challenging.
