epa02530580 A tourist looks over royal post cards in London, Britain, 15 January 2011. The Queen has opted not to impose the higher rate of VAT on Royal souvenirs, including those marking the forthcoming royal wedding. Official memorabilia from the Royal Collection to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29 has proved a hit with the public since going on sale five days before Christmas. The rise in VAT from 17.5 per cent to 20 per cent came into force on January 4. EPA/ANDY RAIN
