A commemorative mug has been designed by a Chapel Row business to mark the imminent arrival of the second royal baby.

Excitement in the Duchess of Cambridge’s home village is growing by the day in anticipation of the new arrival, said to be due in late April.

And owner of interior design store L Interiors, Lynda Tillotson, has been busy launching another specially-designed commemorative mug.

She teamed up with London-based designer Juliet Travers and ceramics firm Royal Stafford to create the keepsake, which carries the words ‘small acorns become mighty oaks’, and a share of the proceeds from each sale will be donated to West Berkshire Mencap.

It follows a similar design to the ‘from small acorns’ mug commissioned ahead of the birth of Prince George in 2013, of which 500 were sold.

Lynda said: “We’re hoping to capture some of the excitement of last time. The mugs were delivered to every part of the world and were popular with Americans in particular.

“We’re delighted that this interest will also enable us to support a local charity. We’ve built a relationship with West Berkshire Mencap and know what great work they do.”

The chief executive of West Berkshire Mencap, Leila Ferguson, said: “We are delighted that Lynda and L Interiors have chosen to support West Berkshire Mencap. What a great gift to remember the royal birth.”

The mug is priced at £20 and will be on sale at L Interiors and online at www.llifestyle.com
