The birth of an heir to the British throne is a momentous occasion and calls for celebration; the arrival of the newest heir is no exception. Prince George Alexander Louis was born in London on July 22, 2013 to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The late Princess Diana would have been his grandmother. He is third in line to the throne, and the first heir born in the 21st century. Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and his father, Prince William, will all precede him on the throne. To honor this historic occasion, there are numerous lovely collectibles available for purchase. Many of these items can be passed down to future generations.
Elegantly styled mugs made by British ceramics manufacturers are a very practical keepsake that will get lots of use. Some of the mug designs incorporate George’s name and date of birth in delicate brushstrokes.
Another commemorative item, with a decidedly British flair, is a tankard made of English China. Celebrate the birth of the newest heir to the throne with fine ale in an elegant vessel.
Teacup and saucer sets made from fine English Bone China are also available. What better way to honor the birth of Prince George then with a cup of tea served on English China? Earl Grey and English Breakfast Tea are two very British varieties that would be a perfect complement to a tea set commemorating the birth of Prince George.
Wall Plaques and Trinket Boxes
Wall plaques and trinket boxes are also wonderful keepsake items to honor the occasion. They are made from fine China and incorporate the Union Jack, along with the prince’s name and birthday.
The British monarchy has always represented continuity and tradition. The birth of Prince George is the latest chapter in the story. Purchasing collectible keepsakes including mugs, tankards, tea sets, wall plagues and trinket boxes is a great way to share in the joy of this memorable occasion and own a piece of history.
