  A Limited Painting of just 66 ceramics

web size louisEveryone was very excited about the Royal Birth on the 23rd of April 2018 of the new Royal Prince…especially as he was born on St George’s Day!

His Royal Highness Prince Louise Arthur Charles of Cambridge was born at 11.01 a.m. weighing a healthy 8lb 7oz.  The third child to their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was born at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, as were their other two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Royal Prince was named after his grandfather Charles, Prince of Wales, and his great great great uncle Lord Mountbatten.
Prince Louis is fifth in the line of succession to the British Throne.

Our ceramic tribute is painted on the Windsor building the Olde Kings Head.  Based on the building at 7 Church St. near Windsor Castle, and built in 1525  it is said  to be the oldest inn in Windsor and where Shakespeare wrote the   ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ around 1597

For the birth of Prince Louis, we have decorated the building as a baby shop fit for a prince! The  windows are filled with toys, baby wear bunting and balloons, and the ceramic is finished with highlights of pure gold.

We will be creating just 66 of this Limited Painting, and each will have a numbered certificate. ‘Prince Louis’ is priced at £94.95 + carriage/insurance.  ‘Prince Louis’ measures 22cm ( 8 & 1/2″) tall to the top of the chimney x 8.5cm (3 & 1/4″) wide.  To order yours,

Looks like it was love at first sight!  After only knowing one another for three or four weeks, Prince Harry invited Meghan to join him in Botswana.

There they camped out under the stars—how romantic!  He later said that this time was crucial to them to really get to know one another, he also said he knew she was ‘The One’ from the first time they met!

After months of will they – won’t they, the engagement was officially announced in November 2017 and the countdown was on to a Royal Wedding! – nothing we like better.  With her glamourous looks we think she will made a beautiful bride.
