The Duchess of Cambridge might be able to make people buy dresses, but only Queen Elizabeth could sell an entire shipment of $380 teapots in seconds.
The ornate teapots were the fastest-selling of the 26 special souvenirs released to mark the queen's Diamond Jubilee, alongside a $380 bowl and a $145 plate.
The most expensive item is a $760 decorative urn, while the cheapest is a $9 tin of mints.
All money made by the souvenirs will be used for the upkeep of the Royal Collection.
