China collection released to celebrate the birth of baby Cambridge

Highgrove Gardens have released an exclusive commemorative range of china which has been commissioned by Buckingham Palace to celebrate the birth of baby Cambridge.

Highgrove Gardens is one of a select few distributors of the Royal Collection’s officially licensed commemorative china that celebrates important landmark occasions in the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s baby boy was born on Monday at 11:01 weighing 8lbs 7oz. In the collection celebrating the birth of the Prince, there is a variety of beautifully detailed china pieces. This includes a tankard, plate, mug, and pillbox.

All four of the pieces are made from English fine bone china and feature a charming design that combines the historical Royal emblems with a nursery theme. They have the iconic heraldic lion and unicorn but with a childlike appeal, surrounded by a border of fluffy pompoms and ribbons.

The china is crafted in the heart of the Staffordshire potteries in Stoke-on-Trent, and they are all manufactured by hand. The pieces also have 22-carat gold decoration on them and come in a gift box making them the perfect souvenir gift.

Although the majority of the collection is available to buy now, the mug will not be available until baby Cambridge has been named. This is so that the Prince’s name and date of birth can be printed onto the mug to make the piece extra special.

Highgrove Gardens are also selling a commemorative collection for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that takes place at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on 19th May.

The china pieces celebrating their special day are light blue and feature the initials ‘HM’ on them which are tied with a pretty white bow and topped with a crown. Like with baby Cambridge’s collection, they also feature 22-carat gold decoration.
