Earlier this year I created a Coronation Collection, in honour of the forthcoming coronation of King Charles. My capsule collection of HRH King Charles' Coronation illustrated in my iconic, spirited handwriting, in which I try to capture the grandeur and significance of this historic event through my interpretation of the Coat of Arms:
I have also drawn Charles as the environmentalist, wandering through the grounds of his beloved Highgrove, capturing the natural flora and wildlife, for which he has always been such a prominent advocate.
I thought it would be an opportunity to draw the British Royal Family Tree, so I created it in the shape of a tree, an apple tree to be precise. Like apples on a tree, there's good and bad, but they don't fall far from the tree. I have been asked as to why Megan is the first in line and the answer is ... no reason. I just drew her at Harry's side and there is no hidden meaning or agenda behind my work.
I did however, include a tribute to Diana, Queen of Hearts, which is an homage to a compassionate and singular princess who is still remembered and loved by many today.
The collection has been a popular hit with fans across the world, particularly in Japan, where it has been printed onto juco tote bags. Liberty of London in England has also bought in my Coat of Arms tote bag for the occasion.
At home, we are getting ready for the big event on 6 May and Nancy (aka Princess), my Chilean Araucana hen, is checking to see if her crown fits, assisted by her most adoring attendee, BiBi the cat.
We will all be sat watching the pageantry at home, cheering on Charles and with Nancy wearing her crown and claiming the title of THE Coronation Chicken.
