Kate & Wills “Biplane over Kilimanjaro” box

Chantal Coady, founder of upmarket chocolate company Rococo, also felt moved to put a royal spin on a new product. “We did a chocolate bar for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee which was very successful,” she says. “This was much more of a challenge. [William and Kate] are both quite private people and we know much less about them… In the end, we drew inspiration from their engagement in Africa.”

And so the chocolate box features the happy couple in a jaunty biplane flying past a Mount Kilimanjaro sunset. The image was painted by Coady herself, who designs and creates all Rococo’s packaging. “It must have taken the best part of two weeks to get the design finished. I do hope that it’s something people will want to keep after the wedding is over.”

Available for purchase at all Rococo branches, which will be open on the day of the wedding from 12-5.

  • Yes, you have set the right tone for the celebration. After the event, everyone will want to keep the box as souvenir. I believe that the tropical and retiring sunset imagery provided by the packaging is excellent considering the use of the aircraft which symbolizes the profession of the Prince. Very relevant and thoughtful of Coady.
