M&S celebrates royal wedding by becoming Markle & Sparkle

By on Friday, May 18, 2018

Marks & Spencer is to become Markle & Sparkle for one weekend to celebrate the royal wedding.

The Windsor branch of M&S is a focus of the re-brand, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to pass the store following their nuptials at St George’s Chapel on Saturday.

The store is featuring a sparkly Markle & Sparkle fascia, with windows decked out in the colours of the Union flag.

M&S stores in Kensington & Chelsea, Reading, Maidenhead, Camberley, Bracknell, Newbury, Leamington Spa, Tunbridge Wells, Swindon, Kingston upon Thames, Lewisham, Llandudno and Sutton Coldfield will also feature specially designed Markle & Sparkle windows and decor.

Sharry Cramond, marketing director of food and hospitality at M&S told The Sun : “As a quintessentially British brand we had to do something special to mark the royal wedding, and what better way to welcome Meghan to the family than to ‘marry’ both our names together for the weekend.

This window display by Smeg in London’s St James is also fabulous.

The M&S takeover is ‘almost’ as good as that time Burger King Tottenham Court Road got royal name change to honour Queen’s 90th birthday.
