Kate Middleton's parents cash in on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding with toe-curling blog promoting their Union flags and bunting

Party Pieces is offering a “Best of British” range that includes regal-themed crown cake decorations and confetti.

The firm, run by Kate’s parents Carole and Michael, has even written a guide on what to buy for a street party to make it the "talk of the town”, ahead of the royal nuptials on May 19.

But there is no mention of the royal wedding or Harry and Meghan on the site.

On the Party Pieces blog, editor Jennifer Carter details her five favourite items for a British Street Party.

She writes: “One of our favourite British traditions, street parties are set to be a big feature this summer.

“Whether you’re organising a huge bash for your street, or are planning something a little bit smaller for your nearest and dearest, we’ve pulled together our five favourite pieces.”

The post then suggests shopping from the Best of British range for all the tableware and other accessories, with a mini street food stand costing £14.99 or a “trendy” drinks bottle at £7.99.

Party Pieces even suggests waving flags and links to its £2.99 Union Jack range.

The blog reads: “Especially fun for little ones (a flag can keep them entertained for a surprising amount of time!) waving flags are a must have for any British Street Party.”

Party Pieces is also giving away free cake topper printables, including one with a crown emblem, to sweeten the deal.

In March, the firm started to flog its first set of royal wedding decorations with paper chains, pairs of Union Jack Head Boppers and bowler hats.

Shoppers could search for items by putting in "Royal wedding" into the search bar on the online party store's website.

Their description for the plastic hats reads: “Complete the look with this fun Union Jack Bowler Hat.

“Ideal for national celebrations, you can show off your British style with this hilarious hat."

Like Kate and Prince William, Carole and Michael will be attending the wedding ceremony at St George's Chapel, nestled in the grounds of Windsor Castle, later this month.

The millionaire couple have run their mail order party supplies firm for more than thirty years.

Party Pieces has been approached by The Sun Online for comment.
