Prince William’s in-laws offer ‘adult’ outfits online
LONDON—The parents of Prince William’s wife Catherine have launched a range of outfits for “adult occasions” on their party goods website, a British tabloid said Saturday.
The Party Pieces firm, owned by the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton, offers a mini-skirted French maid outfit and a female pirate fancy dress costume under a section entitled adult occasions.
The site shows pictures of the pirate outfit with stockings and a slit skirt and also advertises a short spotted “ladybug” dress and Superman outfit.
There is also a blow-up Sumo outfit described as “the funniest fancy dress costume you can find,” the Daily Mail reported.
Some sections of the British media have questioned the taste of the royal in-laws, accusing the Middletons of cashing-in on their connections by creating a range of royal wedding-themed memorabilia.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — referred to as “Kate” by many Britons –, turned 30 this month.
By most accounts she has scarcely put a foot wrong since stepping into the international public glare when she married William, second in line to the throne, last April.
