The British royals are going digital! Unofficial cell phone emojis of Duchess Kate and Meghan Markle are set to launch in anticipation of Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal wedding on May 19, and the creators DRKHORS Media want your say in the designs.
Along with regal illustrations of the former actress and her soon-to-be sister-in-law, designs of Pippa Middleton will also be included in the package of emojis, along with British sayings like “cheeky bugger.” TMZ first spoke to a representative of the company about the new addition. “KateMoji will focus on Kate and her royal family, while MeghanMoji will focus on Meghan and Harry falling in love,” the individual explained. “Each package will include British sayings and phrases.”
While the designs are still in the development stage, their website has polled royal fans, asking what they’d like to see Meghan and Kate doing in their emojis. As of now, the current images feature Kate on tour in New Zealand taking a sip of red wine, Meghan in her well-known blue short suit and Pippa holding the train of the Duchess’s wedding gown seven years ago. Users will even have access to an artistic text design reading “American Princess,” obviously referring to Meghan’s entrance into the Royal Family – from Hollywood star to Kensington Royal.
Since Meghan’s unofficial induction into the family, it seems as though royal fans are getting more and more diverse! Loyal watchers of the paralegal TV show Suits are now paying attention to the monarchy, meaning these emojis are all the more relevant to the current digital climate. One can only hope that there will be royal baby emojis on the horizon, too!
