The members of the British Royal Family were probably the first personalities to be featured on egg cups, and they still appear in an important number of souvenir and commemorative pieces. But they are not the only ones. Egg cups with TV, cinema and music celebrities are also getting quite numerous. The featured people may not always be of great historic relevance, but they'll always have their public.
