Kitty has been pictured endorsing Satine Jersey Milk at a British Museum event while wearing a gorgeous emerald green dress. The cousin of Prince William and Harry told Chinese journalists at the event “The day of the Royal Family usually begins with a cup of milk or a cup of tea.” It comes as pictures have circulated of the Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips starring in an advert for Chinese milk firm ‘Bright Dairies’.
In the advert, the son of Princess Anne could be seen clutching a glass of milk outside of a green-screened ‘Longleat House’ with wording underneath that says “British Royal Family member Peter Phillips”.
Now the Cabinet Office has been urged to look into Peter Phillips’ evident cashing in on his royal status.
Meanwhile, MPs have slammed Princess Anne’s son for “demeaning the very essence of the monarchy”.
Over on Twitter users have taken to the site to share their thoughts on the fiasco.
One user said: “I like the fact he’s doing a bit of work. Perhaps #meghanandharry can do yogurt and cheese?”
Another said: “Can the queen please bung #peterphillips a couple of quid, he must be a bit skint.”
A third remarked: “Good grief #peterphillips may not be an HRH but trading off the #royalfamily brand makes my milk curdle. what next?”
The Mail has said that Mr. Phillips: “Is likely to have been paid tens of thousands of pounds for the adverts, which give the impression of being set in a royal palace.”
Kitty has also spoken of the royal family’s fondness for dairy, by remarking that “At Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the Queen in London, the Queen’s day begins with drinking a cup of tea.”
Lady Kitty is often pictured promoting an array of different products, including Estee Lauder Lipstick where she labels herself an “EsteePartner”.
She also walked the runway for Dolce and Gabbana, has modeled for jewelry brand Bulgari and been on multiple magazine covers including Tatler.
These fresh revelations will heighten the ongoing debate around how certain royals without a title are able to generate personal income.
The Sussex’s since dropping there HRH titles have been rumoured to potentially be in talks with both Disney and Netflix to sign a million-dollar contract as they attempt to make their own independent income.
There has since been no comment from Lady Kitty’s agent or from Buckingham Palace
A source close to Mr.Phillips has said: ‘As Peter does not undertake any Royal duties and does not receive any income from the taxpayer, he is entitled to go about his business and earn a living.’
Lady Kitty, 29, is currently engaged to South African businessman Michael Lewis after a whirlwind romance, who at 60 is five years older than her father, Earl Spencer.
