Royal Doulton Prince Charles 70th 25cm
A new limited edition Royal Doulton figure, the Prince Charles 70th Birthday Figurine, is inspired by a photograph showing His Royal Highness in his Royal Air Force Marshal uniform taken at the Battle of Britain 70th Anniversary at Westminster Abbey. He attended this significant anniversary with the Duchess of Cornwall and will be celebrating his own 70th landmark birthday in 2018. Prince Charles was born on 14th November 1948 and Her Majesty has awarded her heir an honorary five-star rank in all three Military services to acknowledge his support in her role as Commander-in-Chief. Therefore he can wear the uniforms of Field Marshal of the British Army, Admiral of the Fleet in the Royal Navy and in this case, Marshal of the Royal Air Force. This commemorative figurine with a limited edition of 1000 numbered and certificated pieces has been expertly created in England by sculptor Neil Welch. In great detail he depicts a distinguished Prince Charles in his blue Royal Air Force uniform and cap complete with his rank insignia on the shoulders and sleeves, an array of medals, ceremonial blue sash, gold brocade and cumberbund details. This is part of a collectable series of royal portraits from Royal Doulton.
