If you’ve been here any length of time, you know that the British Royals are a few of my favorite things. I’m not the only one who is fascinated with all things Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Duchess Kate, and now … Princess Charlotte.
Over the years, many have collected royal keepsakes. Here’s the opening page from a wonderful book I have, which I think belonged to my Grandma. It’s all about Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation.
And here’s a mug a friend gave me. She got it to commemorate the coronation.
So now, how can you remember Princess Charlotte’s birth? A royal princess hasn’t come along in quite some time, and besides, is there anyone — anyone! — who can resist the charm and beauty that is William and Kate and their family? They are truly the most photogenic group!
Well, UK designer Milly Green has come up with a charming line of items celebrating the new little princess. Milly is passionate about all things British, and she puts a contemporary spin on classic themes, with an emphasis on color. You’ll find Milly Green goods in shops and attractions throughout the UK, and elsewhere.
I’m excited about the Royal Princess line. With tea towels, mugs, and plates, there’s something to interest any royal fan. Even if you’re not a royal collector, these items make great gifts. They’re just fun, the details are exquisite, and each item has a very British flair. Did you notice the “H.R.H.” on the pram? There’s even a beloved corgi on the tea towel.
The mug is fine bone china and hand decorated in the UK, with details like the princess’s birth date and even her name printed on the inside edge. The tea towel is made in the UK of heavy-weight 100% cotton. Speaking of tea towels — they make a great gift wrap for a smaller gift. Just wrap up your item and tie it at the top with a bow. Voila: two gifts in one!
If you’re feeling like adorable little Prince George is being neglected, don’t. Milly Green still offers Prince George commemorative gifts too. In fact, Milly first created London Bus designs, and progressed to Prince George before moving on to Charlotte. The Charlotte items are flying off shelves, particularly in the US (yes, they do ship to the US!). So apparently I’m not the only royal fan out there.
Do you have a royal baby souvenir? How about any keepsakes of Charles and Diana’s wedding, or William and Kate’s?
Thanks to Milly Green for review items. All opinions my own.
