According to the Daily Mail, in a short inset article entitled “CAROLE’S LAST-MINUTE SALE,” ’s parents have launched a last-minute sales campaign to sell paraphernalia for “royal wedding street parties.”
Apparently, an article promoting the virtues of the “traditional British streetparty” (if there is such a thing) was posted on the Middleton’s online party business website Party Pieces.
The article supposedly has online links to products such as British themed bunting, “Best of British Party Cups” and patriotic platters, party canape flags and other patriotic themed items.
Thesays that the article deliberately avoids mentioning the royal wedding on Friday, simply urging readers to organize a “traditional British street party” to “celebrate the arrival of spring.” What does the arrival of spring have anything to do with British patriotism?
This British themed promotion just days before the royal wedding will “inevitably invite criticism that they are trying to cash in on the marriage,” per the Daily Mail is accurate as the article in question cannot be found easily…
Checking the website right now, it’s not easy to find any mention of this promotional article, not even by keyword search “traditional British streetparty.”
However, there is a “Best of British” theme with all the aforementioned products and more, sporting the Union Jack and all things British but nothing that would be specifically related to the royal couple.
Perhaps the original article and suggestions have been removed after the accusation of exploiting the royal wedding!
