Issued in a limited edition of 2,000, A Royal Christening portrays Queen Elizabeth II at the christening of Prince George Alexander Louis on 23rd October 2013 in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London. The three month old prince, third in line to the throne, is held by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, whilst his father, the Duke of Cambridge, proudly stands behind them with one hand protectively on the two-seater sofa and the other behind his back.

Her Majestys sky blue cashmere coat was designed by Stuart Parvin and complemented by a hat with a floral and feather trim to the broad brim. The coat, which peeps open to reveal a floral dress, is decorated by one of the Queens favourite brooches. The sparkling Flower Basket brooch was given to the Queen by her parents to celebrate the birth of Prince Charles, its a gorgeous design of diamonds intermingled with ruby, sapphire and emerald flowers and she regularly wears it on formal as well as important family occasions.

Royal events and anniversaries have regularly been commemorated by Royal Doulton since the 19th century, and the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen, the UKs longest reigning monarch, is no exception.

Royal Doulton designer, Neil Faulkner has chosen notable points in the Queen Elizabeth IIs life as inspiration for a memorable collection of four figurines reflecting her personal history, from a young princess in wartime to a great grandmother celebrating the christening of a future king.

As evidenced by the name, Royal Doulton enjoys the distinction of a "Royal Warrant" -- a mark of distinction bestowed upon people or companies who have regularly supplied members of the Royal Family with goods or services. Royal Warrants, regarded as a mark of supreme excellence and quality, cannot be bought or sold.

King Edward awarded the first Royal Warrant to Royal Doulton in 1901. The Doulton Company then became The Royal Doulton Company. Presently, the Royal Doulton brand holds two Royal Warrants, the Royal Albert brand holds two Royal Warrants and the Minton brand holds one.
