Kate Middleton’s Mother Using Royal Pregnancy To Make Money
Kate Middleton’s mother is reportedly trying to cash in on her daughter’s royal pregnancy.
Kate’s parents own a company called Party Pieces and they are now selling royal baby themed items which many are calling “tacky, tasteless and vulgar.”
Carole Middleton, Kate’s mother, is said to be “exploiting the impending birth,” of her grandchild by reporters for the UK Daily Mail.
“It is tacky, tasteless and vulgar — and from what I know of William and Kate, I would expect them to be highly embarrassed,” Michael Thornton wrote in regards to the miniature castles, plates for ‘A New Little Princess’ and ‘A New Little Prince,’ and other royal baby-themed products.
While the company’s website states that; “It’s a great occasion to celebrate before the new arrival, inviting family and friends along. Such a celebration allows other mothers to share their wisdom and own knowledge of becoming a mother,” others say: “It would appear the arrival of their first grandchild has been seen by Kate’s parents as a marvelous business opportunity.”
While the Middletons aren’t exactly in need of more cash, City analysts put the value of the party company at $65 million, not to mention the $7.6 million home the Middleton’s own, it appears this is a case of the rich wanting to be richer. “It’s hard to believe it did not occur to the Middletons that this would be seen as a cynical attempt to cash in on their daughter’s pregnancy.”
Very hard indeed.
