Video of the week: How you can invest in the future of Royal collectibles

The date is set, the nation is on standby and the commemorative tea-towel industry has gone into overdrive.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement last month, production lines had already starting rolling on the next set of royal wedding collectibles before a date had even been set.

Now we know the whole country will be celebrating on April 29th next year (even if it's just due to the new Bank Holiday), collectors are already looking at how to profit from the upcoming nuptials.

Our video of the week gives you some tips on investing wisely in royal wedding memorabilia: it shows you how to pick the collectible gems from the sea of mass-produced merchandise, and gives an insight into how much those items could be worth in the future....
