The most popular of all royal souvenirs, a tea towel, will be added to the list of official merchandise released to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Deemed too tacky to make the list of authorised goodies for the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011, the Queen has given in to public demand and approved the production of a royal tea towel.

The 100 per cent cotton towel, featuring William IV's coat of arms, will sell for STG8.95 ($A13.75) and will be the cheapest in the range of official products, the British tabloid the Mail on Sunday reports.

Other mementoes marking the Queen's 60-year reign include a STG250 ($A384) teapot and a STG145 ($A223) plate, both part of a collection that is expected to generate hundreds of thousands of pounds for the royal coffers.
