Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 95th birthday this year (on April 21, to be exact) and that means presents for the rest of us.
In honor of the monarch's upcoming birthday, the Royal Collection Trust has released a new range of chinaware and decorations for royal fans to collect. Let's start with the china collection, which includes a mug, pillbox, tankard, side plate, teacup, and saucer.
The china's design features the royal coat of arms (naturally), as well as some special nods to some of the places that mean the most to the Queen—the United Kingdom and her beloved residence in Windsor. The coat of arms is positioned above the National Emblems of the UK—a garland of roses, shamrocks and thistles—and the whole design is surrounded by pink roses that were inspired by the roses the Queen can see in the East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle.
Other pieces in the Queen's 95th birthday collection include a 2022 calendar:
A Corgi ornament:
A tea towel set:

The Queen's full 95th birthday collection is available to purchase now through the Royal Collection Trust's shop.
