Just in case you didn't know, the Queen technically owns (owned?!) a lot of swans.
A law from the 12th century declared all swans be forfeited to the king except those belonging to the most privileged. Swans were a delicious delicacy and status symbol, only owned by the king or aristocratic landowners who marked their swans with a crest. Any escapee swans 'flying at liberty' automatically belonged to the crown.
In 2007 artist Mark McGowan took the law into his own hands and dared to eat a swan, but we all now know that it is only Queenie who can fully exclaim 'I Eat Swans!'
A vital addition to all royal mug collections, designed by Scot Burgoyne.
