Sorry - so ignore mine.


Nono, it's interesting to discuss changing tastes. (grin)

Basically, I'm asking if those wedding gifts are a reflection of their time.

But then I go on to ask, why would the impulse of those giving presents to royals today, be so different from those giving gifts in 1947? *

Why would it be difficult to imagine someone giving say, Prince William, a laser printer -- the equivalent of a washing machine today.

*I read Sabba's reply, and I think she's hit the nail on the head. The manufacturers, if it is they who were giving their wares to Liz and Phil, were showcasing their products, getting free publicity etc. Still, I wouldn't imagine something similar happening today with royal wedding "product placement", as it were. And that's the thing that fascinates me.

Do we consider the impulse to give a washing machine to a royal couple, TODAY, unsophisticated?

Something's changed.
