The royal wedding is only a month away, so naturally gift-giving is ramping up. We’ve seen $35,000 bottles of ranch dressing and custom betrothal beers, but now, thankfully, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have something to drink them out of. If drinking ranch is their sort of thing, that is…

Belgian beer maker Stella Artois is raising an honorary toast to the couple with a commemorative, limited-edition Regal Chalice. The chalice—a signature of the brand’s—has undergone a custom redesign to represent the magical fairy tale of two famous people getting hitched.

That design is a tapestry of 19 different symbols and objects that bring us waves of nostalgia for the couple’s relationship, from churches to horses to diamond rings. Oh, and did we mention Prince Harry’s fave fruit, bananas? The chalice could probably hold a banana smoothie if Harry wanted one.

Why 19 and not an even 20? Simple! The couple is taking the plunge on May 19th. So far no cold feet; just cold beer.

“We're excited for the happy couple and want to mark this festive occasion with a proper toast!” said brand director Anna Rogers in a statement. “We at Stella Artois know a thing or two about hosting memorable moments big and small, so we raise a Regal Chalice in celebration.”

In another riff on the wedding date, the chalices will be available to purchase from Stella’s website for $5.19. If you want one, make sure you get one before they all get scooped up by other royally-obsessed fans.
