Having followed the royal love story from day one, it is as expected that many are looking to cash-in and have jumped on the bandwagon to produce royal memorabilia. But to be honest there is nothing sweeter than to sip our morning tea from a mug featuring the happy couple: Catherine and… Harry?!
Either something is clearly wrong or we’ve all been fooled. Phew! Kate Catherine’s fiancée is still the first-born prince, William, and not his younger brother Harry.
But it looks like someone at Guandong Enterprises has not been paying attention during the proofing session, as he or she failed to spot the royal mix up.
Under the heading “The Fairytale Romantic Union of All The Centuries”, Guandong boasts of the “beautiful cup” that honours the wedding of “HRH Prince William and his stunning lady bride to be, Miss Kate Middleton.”
However on the commemorative mug available for sale online interested shoppers are met with the image of a grinning Harry – labelled ‘Will’ next to royal bride-to-be Kate.
For only £9.99 plus postage, the website kindly asks visitors to “please be our guests to own this esteemed, limited edition heirloom to celebrate with your work associates, friends, family and loved ones” on the big day.
Is this for real or just a spoof? We’re not sure, but we’re in two minds whether to buy one or not. As the website says we “are welcome to purchase now to avoid disappointment and regret.” Could prove profitable on eBay later…
