Now that’s a royal goof-up!

There is bound to be a storm in this teacup. In what will possibly go down history books as the mother of all goof-ups, specially-crafted limited edition mugs, manufactured to celebrate the royal wedding of Prince William of Britain and Kate Middleton on April 29, show a picture of Kate alongside Prince Williams’ younger brother Prince Harry as her groom!

The WillKat mug, made by a Chinese firm, Guandong Enterprises, is being marketed as an esteemed limited edition heirloom. Priced at $15.99, the mug has now funnily become popular because of the royal mistake.

Reports say that the officials at Buckingham Palace know about the flub-up but are not commenting on it.

Blogs are abuzz with amused comments by users. “You’d have to be living under a rock the past 30 years to not know one from the other!” reads a comment by user SE. Monkeypaw wrote, “I’m ordering one, and they better not correct it!”
