The Diamond Collection: Celebrating 60 years of Britannia

2013 marks a truly special year for The Royal Yacht Britannia, as we celebrate 60 years since her launch from the John Brown Shipyard in Clydebank on 16 April 1953.

To commemorate this milestone, Britannia's retail team have developed a stunning range of china, 'The Diamond Collection' exclusively for its Gift Shop. Inspired by the ship's rich blue and gold hull, the design incorporates historic artefacts and interiors on board the yacht, from the brass-leaf and shell cornice in Britannia's Royal Apartments to the intricate binnacle and Royal Barge. In the video below, Britannia's Head of Retail, Sonia Lee, talks to us about the whole process, from concept to design and production at the pottery in Stoke-on-Trent.
