Kate Middleton fronts family brochure to sell Princess party gearMarch 22nd, 2009 - 3:10 pm ICT by ANI
London, March 22 (ANI): A picture of Prince Williams girlfriend Kate Middleton has found its way on her family brochure selling Princess party gear.
The 27-year-olds face was also featured in a website along with the catalogue offering eighty-four princess-theme products, including dresses, wands, bookcase, fairytale stagecoaches along with Princess party invites, cups, treasure chests and table covers.
However, the decision to let her parents multi-million-pound Party Pieces company to benefit from her five-year-old relationship with the royal has evoked much criticism.
This is plainly cashing in on palace connections and the royals arent going to like it, News of the World quoted a source as saying.
Kate is a famous woman ONLY because of William and its clear to see that any product she endorses with a regal connection will sell.
Theres a very real concern that what shes doing trivialises the name of the British monarchy, the source added.
There were even fears that the move could rake up tensions between the two lovers.
The source continued: When the Queen wanted Kate to work shed never imagine the family would use her connections to the monarchy in such an obvious way. Its no surprise the princess lines sell better than most.
Cynics might think the company sees Kates relationship with Wills as a marketing opportunity to exploit.
Its no secret Kate would love to see Wills get down on one knee. It would be terrible if something like this jeopardised that. (ANI)
