Kate Middleton’s parents are being accused of trying to ‘cash in’ on their daughter’s wedding. The evidence? Their decision to feature the following language on their company website:
A blog posted on their website, Party Pieces, claimed: “Every little girl dreams of being a princess … and there’s nothing a princess likes more than throwing a party.”
Miss Middleton, 28, works for the Party Pieces company, run by her parents Carole and Michael.
Ignore my furrowed brow at the idea of every little girl dreaming of becoming a princess. Apparently, the website features many other uses of the ‘p’ word, but isn’t this a fairly – albeit regrettably – normal way to market to the parents of small girls these days? And what are the Middletons supposed to do – pretend that their daughter and employee isn’t marrying the future heir to the throne?
What a non-story. Good evidence of their grasping middle-class crassness though (if that’s the kind of thing one was hoping to find).
