Windsor Castle Tea Mementos

 This was my fourth visit to Windsor Castle.
If you visit London, take a quick bus or train to Windsor.
The little town and the castle is one of my favorite places to visit in England.
My "mission" was to purchase "something" in celebration
of the Queen's Sapphire Jubilee, 65 years on the throne.  

 The inside rim of the cup reads
"H.M. Queen Elizabeth II Our Longest Reigning Monarch"
From the enclosure card below:
"This official range of china has been commissioned exclusively
by Buckingham Palace.  It celebrates this great and historic date
with a specially painted Coat of Arms
inspired by the original Coronation Programme design of 2nd June 1953."

 Below:  Royal Blend Buckingham Palace Tea
Breakfast, Afternoon and Earl Grey


 
 
Needless to say, I departed Windsor a happy, happy tea lady!

You got some really nice "stuff" the cup & saucer look very classy. Glad you enjoyed it in Windsor. I've only been there once on the coldest day I can remember for years!
