Prince of Wales’s 70th birthday commemorated with new china

The Prince of Wales will turn 70 in November, and to celebrate the occasion, the Royal Collection Trust are releasing a new range of commemorative china.

The pieces are blue, red and gold china and feature a specially painted coat of arms. The coat of arms features the shield of the Duchy of Cornwall, the Prince of Wales’s Red Dragon badge, and daffodils which are the national flower of Wales.

If you fancy getting your hands on a piece from the special collection, there is a tankard for £39, a teacup and saucer for £55, and a side plate for £39.

For a slightly heftier price, there is a limited edition round box for £125, a limited edition rectangular tray for £145, and a limited edition charger plate for £195.

The commemorative china has been handmade in the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent and is gilded with 22-carat gold.

The Prince of Wales was born on November 14th 1948 at Buckingham Palace. He is the eldest son of The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and is the heir to the throne. He is the longest-serving heir to the throne in British history.

The Prince of Wales’s main role is to support The Queen, but he is also known for his charitable work. The Prince founded the Prince’s Trust and often campaigns on the environment and other issues close to his heart.

If you want to broaden your china collection and add some of the Prince of Wales’s exclusive commemorative items, you can purchase the pieces from Royal Collection Trust shops and online from Saturday 21st July.

This coincides with the summer opening of Buckingham Palace, which this year features an exhibition focusing on the Prince of Wales’s 70th birthday. More than 100 pieces of art personally selected by the Prince will be on display.
