Who are Bags of Love?
The company has been around for more than a decade and is based in London.
Ekaterina Vankova, spokesman for Bags of Love, said: “It seems that our customers are Royal Wedding mad and are printing the faces of everyone’s favourite Royal’s on a selection of our handmade, personalised gifts.
“Our favourite has to be the Harry and Megan and Wills and Kate swimsuits. Nothing like printing the face of a Prince or Duchess on a swimming costume and rocking it proudly on the beach.
“Royal weddings do not happen every day, and we are really looking forward to the celebration on the 19th!
“We also believe our choice of placement Harry’s beard reflects our thoughts on accepting the body too, on accepting who you are.”
