KFC is truly re-exploring what it means to be a fast food “restaurant,” especially after learning that Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle over a roast chicken dinner.
Just recently, the brand introduced a limited edition commemorative bucket to celebrate the matrimony between the two—and if you thought that wasn’t posh enough, it has just unveiled a porcelain version that might make klutzes feel like bulls in a china shop.
Teaming up with creative agency Iris, KFC has debuted the exclusive ‘Kentucky Fine China’ bucket that it deems a “marriage of the finest English tradition and the fine flavor of the American south,” honoring the British-American royal wedding on 19 May.
The bucket’s body is handcrafted by English pottery maker Milton China using fine bone china, and its rim is made with 22-carat gold. It might be too luxurious to hold greasy fried chicken parts, but it’ll immortalize your love for the chain’s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices.
The back of the item sports a special crest of a hen with a US flag and a rooster with a UK flag.
As always, the “packaging” brandishes the KFC logo and an illustration of Colonel Sanders beaming at you, as if he’s proud of how far you have come to be able to attain this high-end container that’s fit for royalty.
Unfortunately, only 25 of these buckets have been made, and will be handed out to some of KFC’s most loyal ‘Colonel Club’ members in the UK. Might you be placated with these gold fried chicken wings instead?
