The BBC Films Our Prince Harry Wedding Mugs

The Sophie Allport Royal Wedding mugs for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have gone into production in Stoke on Trent. Amongst the excitement, the BBC came to film the first mugs being decorated and interviewed Sophie on her inspiration behind the design. Step behind the scenes with us to see what went on!

The first job was to take the printed decals of Sophie's artwork and hand apply them to every mug. This includes the tricky personalised message that sits on the inside rim in Sophie's handwriting!

Sophie was then interviewed by Geeta Pendse, presenter and arts reporter for the BBC. They discussed the inspiration behind Sophie's Royal Wedding mug for Prince Harry and Meghan and enjoyed talking about the original artwork, the detail of Windsor Castle, the 18 different colours that feature on the mug and the dogs that make an appearance on the design!
