As a British expat trying to keep in touch with the old sod, I’ve acquired the slightly eccentric habit of buying coffee mugs recording key moments in the public life of our royal family. Alas, those celebrating the weddings of Prince Charles and Prince Andrew broke soon after their marriages fell apart. Not so the mug I bought for Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee in 2002. In fine bone china, no less than in person, she just keeps on going.
