Royal Souvenirs Have ‘Platinum Jubbly’ Misprint

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

These are the first three paragraphs.

A spelling mistake on thousands of pieces of Platinum Jubilee merchandising, calling it the “Platinum Jubbly”, is proving a challenge for souvenir sellers.

The cups and plates were meant to mark the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Clearance website boss Karl Baxter said – “in classic Del Boy-style” – he will pitch them as collectors’ items.

It is so sad that Prince Philip is no longer with us. As a Greek he would surely have had some very appropriate jokes about plate smashing.

  1. One of the funniest things I’ve seen for a long time. Clearly not an approved item and as for the portrait of the Queen on these items, who in their right mind would buy these anyway? As for the environmental impact of this shite being produced and shipped here is another question entirely.

  2. I have met quite a few people, who’ve worked with the Queen. Several have said she has a very keen sense of humour.

    I would suspect she has been very much amused.
