A celebration of all thing Royal is on display at the Royal Oak Hospice Shop, in celebration of today's(Friday) wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The items on display have been received from the estate of a Mercy Hospice patient and are up for sale.

The shop is at 728 Manukau Rd and locals are encouraged to pop in to immerse themselves in the rich and colourful comemmoration of past Royal milestones.

Store manager Helen Ravlich says all the staff have got into the royal spirit and dressed up in clothes from the shop.

"It's so nice to have something happy to focus on amongst all the doom and gloom out there," she says.

Mercy Hospice provides palliative care as well as support for family, friends and carers of those affected by life-limiting illnesses.

All hospice services are offered free of charge and Mercy Hospice shops are run to support the organisation, selling quality second-hand goods donated by those whose lives the hospice has touched.
