Plenish Nut milk brand has partnered with artist Steve Casino to give its organic nuts a Royal makeover to mark the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19.

Casino, based in Kentucky, US, spent more than 362 hours transforming the nuts into mini replica royals. 

The artwork is available for the public to see from April 12-15 at Plenish’s pop-up shop at London Coffee Festival, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London.

Kara Rosen, founder/CEO, Plenish said it wasn’t easy trying to find someone to bring its idea to life. 

Four Plenish Milks nuts were hand-painted for the mock-up including almonds, coconuts, cashews and hazelnuts. 

Cashew nuts were used to create the Queen’s royal corgis and coconuts and hazelnuts were used to create the scenes of Westminster Abbey and the Royal Balcony at Buckingham Palace.

The Royals are loved in the US and I admire the brands ethos so it was a super rewarding project to work on, albeit challenging.The Queen and Prince Charles were by far the best characters I’ve made yet,” ​said Casino. 

Plenish Milks are organic, with no additives, stabilisers, oils or gums. Available in  Sainsbury’s and Waitrose in the UK.
