Kenwood has played its part in honouring today’s royal wedding anniversary with the creation of a very special statue.
To help celebrate the Queen’s 60-year marriage to the Duke of Edinburgh the small electricals company commissioned sculptor Ptolemy Elrington to build a statue of Her Majesty made entirely from Kenwood parts. The 8ft figure was unveiled in London but will have its home at Kenwood’s Havant, Hampshire factory.
Kenwood is also marking a 60-year milestone this year, as the company was founded by Kenneth Wood in 1947. Since then it has sold over 15m of its iconic Kenwood Chefs and, appropriately enough, the brand has even found its way into the kitchens at Buckingham Palace.
“We’re honoured to share such a momentous anniversary with the Queen and Prince Philip and commissioned the sculpture to mark the occasion,” commented Penny Jones, trade marketing manager for Kenwood UK and Ireland. “It’s the perfect way to not only commemorate the joint 60th but also to celebrate Kenwood’s continued strides in innovation and design.”
