William and Kate mug disaster sees charity shop accused of high treason

A charity shop has sparked ridicule after it was spotted selling an unusual royal mug that celebrated the wedding anniversary of Prince Harry and Kate Middleton.

The east London store stocked several of the cups, which had correctly labelled the wed duo as Will and Kate but mistakenly put a picture of the Duke of Cambridge’s younger brother instead.

Taking to Facebook to share the miraculous find, the poster wrote: “I spotted this monumental cock up in some random charity shop.”

The post quickly left thousands of Brits in stitches and attracted hundreds of comments.

One bemused royal fan joked: “Probably commissioned by Harry” whilst another laughed: “No wonder William and Harry don’t get along anymore.”

Another claimed the unbelievable mistake “must be high treason”.

The mug, which was made in China, also includes an odd message that says: “The body of a man, the beauty of a woman, may they produce children.”

Others pointed out that the bizarre piece of memorabilia could be worth a lot of money.

Someone wrote: “Might have rarity value in future. I'd hang onto that if I were you.”

With another advising: “Buy a set of six, they will be valuable one day. If not they are just hilarious anyway.”

Another commenter questioned how the odd mugs even made it past production in the first place, saying they should have been “destroyed” after they realised the error.

Although when the mugs were produced Prince Harry and Prince William were still close, the pair have had a much-reported fall out since.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the Cambridges made changes to their Kensington Palace staff including to a communications secretary.

The royal couple are said to have announced the new hire in anticipation of the “fight of their life” when Prince Harry’s explosive memoirs are released.
