Natural design remains a passion to this day, of course. Harold was succeeded by Peter Roberts in 1972. And the current Design Studio continues the floral tradition.
And the royal links have been retained. Royal Albert has two Royal Warrants and continues to commemorate important events and anniversaries. Most recently, in 2002, Royal Albert marked the Golden Jubilee of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II, and the death of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother with small collections.
Royal Albert consistently updates its romantic, fashionable image…Thanks to a licensee agreement with fashion icon Zandra Rhodes, she is endorsing her range of “My Favourite Things” with Royal Albert, featuring her signature butterfly and wiggle as a theme across tableware, giftware, and glassware. Like Royal Albert, she has a quintessentially English appeal that reaches across the globe.
Today, Royal Albert’s impressive, elegant portfolio features bone china tableware with floral hues and flowing curves that can be savoured in Old Country Roses, Lavender Rose, Lilac Lane, Paradise, Rose Clouds, Flower of the Month, and more…It’s a theme that’s pursued with a variety of Old Country Roses complementary giftware, alongside collectable teas and plates, and glassware.
Royal Albert, like its customers across the world, remains “….passionate about florals”.
