Prince Charles is cashing in on his mother’s Jubilee celebrations with a range of memorabilia.
The future king is selling commemorative gifts – including a stuffed corgi – through his Highgrove website, all profits from which go to charity.
The replica of the Queen’s favourite dog is selling for an eye-watering 60 but has the monarch’s blessing, according to palace insiders.
One’s favourite breed: The Highgrove Diamond Jubilee Vintage Corgi retails for 60 and is made from a pattern favoured by Her Majesty that dates back to 1950
Also for sale is a 95 cushion with a Union Flag design and the words Diamond Jubilee and another cushion with the words God Save the Queen for 65.
Perhaps with son William and daughter-in-law Kate in mind there is a pair of Union Flag baby shoes in pink, blue or red white and blue for 22.50.
There is also a 175 mohair teddy bear – one of just 250 produced – a 65 enamel clock, a 25 coffee mug and a cushion costing 95.
Also in Charles’s Highgrove range are a 40 address book and 30 notebook with a Union Flag design on.
And for really keen collectors there are tins of confectionery and biscuits and mugs bearing a royal crest.
Very comfy: The Highgrove God Save the Queen cushion, which is on sale for 65
A hint to Wills and Kate? These Union Flag design baby shoes would look smart on any patriotic nipper
Collector’s piece: Don’t let the youngsters chew on this 175 mohair teddy
For the mantlepiece: This enamel timepiece clocks in at 65
25 for a mug? Don’t worry, all profits go to charity
Would look great on any throne: The deluxe God Save The Queen cushion
The ‘Diamond Jubilee Vintage Corgi’ is based on an old pattern created in the Fifties that was a favourite with the Queen.
The toy is described on his Highgrove shop website: ‘Known for her love of corgis and owning several at one time throughout her life, Her Majesty has become synonymous with this characterful breed.
‘In celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee this charming soft toy has been hand made by British craftspeople, exclusively for Highgrove, from a vintage pattern that was originally created in 1950.’
Nearly all of the goods are made in the UK although a Highgrove insider admitted some of the tins are made ‘abroad’, possibly China.
