The royal pottery going at high speed for King's Coronation

From Easter Monday, 9:41 am on 10 April 2023

The date is set for King Charles' coronation and the ceremony will take place on Saturday May 6th.

Behind the scenes workers across Britain have been beavering away to replace the royal monogram from Elizabeth II to Charles III.

Commemorative pieces are already on sale and in Stoke-on-Trent, the hub of England's ceramic industry, thousands of ceramic items are being produced each week to keep up with demand. Gary Fraser checks in from the production line at Duchess China 1888.
