Official commemorative china to celebrate Prince Harry’s marriage to Ms Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, 19 May 2018 is now available.
Buckingham Palace commissioned this exclusive design in white and cornflower blue with a monogram, with Prince Harry’s coronet above, and tied with white ribbons.
This commemorative range includes a plate, tankard, mug, a miniature mug and a pillbox.
The decorative borders are inspired by the mid-13th Century Gilebertus door at St George’s Chapel, which is used by Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family when they attend services.
The Gilebertus door is located at the east end of St George’s Chapel.
The ironwork is in the form of a stylised tree and, unusually for work during that era, bears the name, ‘+GILEBERTVS’.
This English fine bone china is entirely made by hand at Stoke-on-Trent in England using traditional methods dating back 250 years.
More than 50 people are involved from several factories at the heart of English Potteries, from the development of initial designs, creating individual moulds, the hand-finishing with 22-carat gold and manufacture of the special packaging.
Nuala McGourty Royal Collection Trust’s Retail Director said, ‘Royal Collection Trus is delighted to offer the official range of commemorative china to celebrate this happy occasion. We are pleased to continue our support of the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, who have manufactured our previous commemorative wares to celebrate royal birthdays, anniversaries and weddings.’
