Queen Elizabeth mugs and memorabilia: popular choices to commemorate our longest-reigning monarch
Looking for a keepsake to remember the Queen's life and reign? Here's where to buy royal memorabilia to mark the end of an era of British history
The passing of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 96 marked the end of an era in British history. After taking the throne following the death of her father, George VI, in 1952, she reigned for 25,782 days - meaning that most Brits alive today will have never before experienced life under any other monarch.
In June, the nation took to the streets to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, as she reached the unprecedented milestone of 70 years on the throne. Three months later, more than 250,000 people queued in the streets of London, this time to pay their final respects to the Queen as she lay in state in Westminster Hall.
If you are keen to commemorate the UK's longest-serving monarch in your home, there is already no shortage of memorabilia commemorating her life and reign to choose from. The YourHomeStyle team has spent hours scouring the internet to find you collectables that we think make a fitting tribute to the Queen, whether you prefer staunchly traditional styles or something more contemporary - just scroll down to discover our picks.

Rainbow Queen Mug
It is said the Queen chose outfits in a single distinctive shade so that the crowds who inevitably gathered for her public appearances could spot her even from a distance, and over decades of engagements at home and abroad, the royal wardrobe developed its own legendary status . Commemorate the monarch's distinctive fashion with this cute, contemporary mug depicting the Queen in a rainbow array of outfits in her signature style.

God Save The Queen Tea Caddy
With its classic artwork and typography reminiscent of vintage posters, this pillarbox-red tea caddy looks like an antique find, but it's actually a recent design from Emma Bridgewater. We think the 'Forever Steady & True' message on the lid is a particularly appropriate nod to the Queen's lifetime of service.
Queen Elizabeth II framed portrait
Throughout the monarch's 70-year stint on the reign, staunch royalists have made a point of displaying a portrait of the Queen somewhere in their home as a sign of their admiration. If you'd like to do the same, this framed portrait of the Queen in her coronation garb back in 1953 is an especially inspiring depiction, and would look at home as a complement to a timeless and traditional decor or as a charming addition to an eclectic scheme.
God Save the Queen Mug
With its bold, graphic art style, this mug represents a more modern way to pay tribute to the Queen. The wraparound design portrays the monarch in military uniform on horseback - a fitting depiction, as she was a lifelong lover of all things equestrian - as well as a 'God Save The Queen' slogan.
