The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official wedding memorabilia generated sales of almost £4 million for the Royal Collection Trust.

The couple's wedding helped boost the Trust's retail sales figures by an incredible 45% to £17 million during 2011/12.

The Trust maintains and displays the large collection of royal artefacts from artwork to furniture held in trust by the Queen for her heirs and the nation, and carries out other charitable work.
