A new range of fine bone china pieces has been launched to celebrate the arrival of the Royal baby.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child in a few short weeks and people wanting to commemorate the event can choose from a range of pieces by Royal Crown Derby.

The Royal Baby Collection includes a celebratory rocking horse, photo frame, and nursery box - all hand-crafted in England.

Finished with 22 carat gold detailing, each piece features subtle royal motifs such as acorns and crown that are woven into the design to symbolise the new prince or princess.

The nursery box, costing £115, and £145 rocking horse will also be available as commemorative pieces following the birth when the final details relating to birth date and name will be added to the pieces.

As well as this collection there will also be a range of commemorative pieces such as the Royal Crown Derby Loving Cup, five Petal Tray, Heart Tray, and paperweights.
