Waitrose is launching a range of British inspired merchandise including a cake stand and cupcake cases, to help people celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this summer.

The range, which includes bunting, a cake stand, cake tins and cupcake cases and a range of paper cups, plates and napkins, has been illustrated by a British designer.

Waitrose, which carries a Royal Warrant as “Grocer and Wine and Spirit Merchants” to The Queen and the Prince of Wales, hopes that the “patriotic” range will help customers hold parties to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June.

It has also created a range of royal trivia cards so that people can test their knowledge about the Royal Family.

Sainsbury’s is also ramping up its activity around the Diamond Jubilee and is partnering with Disney to host a weekend festival in London’s Hyde Park.
