I’m sure by now you’re seen a reference to the Royal Wedding mug on the Guandong Enterprises website. The company has had global news coverage for putting the wrong prince on it: Harry, not William. Not to mention a badly translated inscription: ‘The Fairytale Romantic Union of All the Centuries’. Oops, those wacky Chinese, eh?
Oops indeed. Guandong Enterprises is a company with only one product, which seems a bit odd. And they only offer it at a UK price. And as a very swift and free search on the Companies House website would have revealed, Guandong Enterprises is based not in Guangdong, but in north London. Finchley, to be precise. And the company was incorporated less than a month ago.
Someone’s making a lot of money off a lot of mugs.
