The countdown to the birth of the second child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has begun with the launch of a limited edition commemorative mug.

Lynda Tillotson, from Bucklebury-based interior design and retail company L Interiors, has once again commissioned a mug to celebrate the royal birth and a percentage of the proceeds is being donated to West Berkshire Mencap.

And she hopes the new special keepsake, to commemorate the birth of the fourth in line to the throne, will generate the same global excitement of the first mug she commissioned for the birth of Prince George in 2013.

This time, it has been developed by renowned designer Juliet Travers, and made by Royal Staffordshire. Reflecting the acorn design on the first mug, 500 of which were sold to collectors worldwide, this mug also features the same Bucklebury-inspired motif.

The mug retails at £20 and will be on sale at L Interiors in Chapel Row, Bucklebury and also at Lynda Tillotson’s new shop L Maison which opens shortly in London’s Holland Park.

Lynda Tillotson said: “Here in Bucklebury, with just three or four weeks to go until the birth, we’re hoping to capture some of the excitement of last time. The mugs were delivered to every part of the world last time and were popular with Americans in particular.

“We’re delighted that this interest will also enable us to support a local charity. Leila Ferguson, CEO of West Berkshire Mencap bounced into the shop four years ago and suggested that I help to organise the charity’s race day. Since then, we’ve built a relationship with West Berkshire Mencap, and have looked around their centre and know what great work they do.”

Leila Ferguson from West Berkshire Mencap added: “We are delighted that Lynda Tillotson and L Interiors have chosen to support West Berkshire Mencap. What a great gift to remember the royal birth. Good luck to William and Kate and don’t forget to put your order in now before the commemorative mugs sell out.”
