Celebrate HM the King’s Coronation with teaware fit for royalty

Regal Peacock caught the eye of royalty when it launched in 1913. Presented to Queen Mary on a visit to the Potteries: a refreshed copper engraving was produced a century later and continues to be one of their most iconic collections, alongside Asiatic Pheasants and Calico. Regal Peacock comes decorated in blue, black or green. HM King Charles has close ties to Burleigh and is a genuine admirer of this luxury British brand. The company has gifted him bespoke pieces over the years and produced several exclusive collections inspired by the royal gardens at Highgrove. His multiple visits to the historical site, as founding patron of The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, have always proved to be exciting times for Burleigh craftspeople.

The home of Burleigh, Middleport Pottery is the UK’s last working Victorian pottery, where you can book a factory tour to see Burleigh’s famous tissue transfer technique and visit the factory shop. Burleigh have been proudly making earthenware in Stoke-on-Trent since 1851.

Handcrafted in Devon for a better sleep

Devon Duvets is a family run business based on the edge of Dartmoor, specialising in sumptuous duvets, pillows and mattress toppers. Made from authentic traceable 100% British wool encased in pure cotton, love and care is individually handcrafted into every stitch by a team of skilled seamstresses.

Using British wool is important to Devon Duvets’ commitment to supporting British farmers. The wool, which is selected for its high grade and softness, is gathered from sheep flocks in Britain (mainly in Devon and the south-west), and cleaned at British mills without using chemicals. So you can be confident your duvet is natural and sustainable, and therefore better for you and the environment.

Wool has many beneficial qualities: it is breathable, moisture wicking and temperature regulating, helping to keep your core body temperature balanced and ensuring a more restful night’s sleep. It is also naturally resistant to dust mites and the build-up of micro-bacteria, making it hypoallergenic and hygienic.

Garden of Kings from the Moorcroft Coronation Collection

It is a well-known fact that His Majesty King Charles III is an avid champion of delphiniums, with his own beloved Highgrove gardens holding these towering kings. And so it is with this Moorcroft design, complete with a monde-topped lid from Moorcroft designer Kerry Goodwin. The commanding presence of the delphinium blooms soar up the side of this lidded pot, a shape not released since the Coronation of King George VI in 1937, with erect racemes of corneyed, azure-to-pimpernel-blue flowers, rising over Highgrove itself. Moorcroft has created art pottery commemoratives since the Coronation of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1902. Each piece of Moorcroft is handmade from start to finish using heritage skills that date back to the 17th Century.
