An online store is being noticed for all the wrong reasons after they advertised a ceramic figurine set which was meant to be three British Royal Family members.
The figurines were supposed to be a remake of a 2015 Christmas card of the Cambridge family. The piece features three of the family members and it is called “Young Royals.”
In the original image, Duchess Kate could be seen kneeling with daughter Princess Charlotte in her lap and son Prince George smiling beside her. Her husband, Prince William was also pictured kneeling beside his wife.
However, the figurine excludes William and people noticed that the subjects looked nothing like the real people. The Royal Doulton website is selling the figurine for $300.
The site claimed that the piece was:
“Crafted in exquisite fine bone china, Royal Doulton figures are beautifully handmade and hand-decorated by skilled ceramic artists.”
The figurine is also available on eBay and TK Maxx. A Twitter user named Amelia Perrin shared a couple of images of the figurine and added a scathing comment.
The social media user wrote: “sometimes TK Maxx out-TK Maxxes itself. £60. arguably the worst thing i’ve ever laid eyes upon.” Strange enough, the retail store is selling the figurine for $110 instead of the price offered on the Royal Doulton site.
Someone with the handle @Steg68 wrote:
“‘For when your house is being burgled, buy this commemorative figurine to smack the burglar in the head with, providing hours of entertaining anecdotes for you and embarrassment for the burglar as he languishes in pokey’ #RoyalDoulton.”
Ross Lawson commented on Perrin’s post writing: “I think this is a lovely image of Sporty Spice posing with Michael Gove and Mark Francois (to scale). Underpriced, if anything.” Gita Govinda mocked the artwork adding: “There are definitely souls trapped in those figurines.”

Someone who actually does take joy in teasing the Royal Family is spoof photographer Alison Jackson. This year she released images of Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan lookalikes having a “violent fight.”
The photos were taken to poke fun at the rumors that the pair were allegedly feuding at Kensington Palace.
