At just 25 years of age, a young Queen Elizabeth II spoke to Privy Councillors in London. Her words echoed a very personal sacrifice. “By the sudden death of my dear father, I am called to assume the duties and responsibilities of Sovereignty. My heart is too full for me to say more to you today other than I shall always work, as my father did throughout his reign, to advance the happiness and prosperity of my peoples, spread as they are all the world over.”
This year Queen Elizabeth passes a unique historic milestone as she becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history. Whilst we celebrate her immeasurable achievements, attributes and triumphs, we should also remember that the respect which millions of people have for their Queen has not been measured by longevity, but by her unwavering devotion to duty, just as she promised all those years ago. This wonderful collection from Moorcroft Pottery is a visual tribute inspired by significant moments in her Majesty’s life.
Each piece represents a unique moment in the colourful tapestry of her extraordinary reign. Just take a little time to browse through the collection and marvel at the imagination and creativity of Moorcroft's designers as they pick out elements from nature or iconic geographic locations, each one adding to the story of Britain's best loved and most remarkable monarch.
