Corgi will be releasing three items presented in a William and Kate gift box, which will include a numbered limited edition certificate.

The 24 carat Gold Plated Ford Model T is an evergreen model for collectors of Corgi. The model features an image of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton with their names intertwined on the side.

There are 2,011 models available of the item, which also includes 29th April 2011 along the top.

With just 5,000 available, the three piece set consists of a Bullnose Van, a Bristol Lodekka double decker bus and a 1:43 scale Austin Mini. The liveries combine the lettering, imagery and commemorative text.

"We wanted to create an exclusive collection of heritage models to coincide with the historic day.”
