From Royal Wedding Smartphones to Sitcom-Themed LEGO Sets

 - Jun 30, 2018
June 2018 pop culture trends are being influenced by the recent royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and also see influences from the past on current products/services.

An example of the former is brand Goldgenie's iPhone X Elite phone, which was designed to commemorate the royal wedding. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's globally-viewed wedding, along with their romance, is commemorated on the phone's 24k gold exterior in the form of a black and white photo of the couple. The phone comes in limited editions and costs an extravagant $3,964.16

As an example of the latter, the online sphere is influencing an online movement that's pushing LEGO to create a Friends-themed LEGO set. The movement currently has 7,638 supporters and requires only a few thousand more in order to get to LEGO's Review stage.
