Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson Peter Phillips has done wrong by milking his royal (if untitled) lineage by alluding to his dairyrich regal childhood.
Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson Peter Phillips has done wrong by milking his royal (if untitled) lineage by alluding to his dairyrich regal childhood.
It is difficult for some to imagine the British royal family gulping down gallons of Jersey cow milk fresh from the Windsor Estate. It is also difficult, however, to pinpoint what Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson Peter Phillips has done wrong by milking his royal (if untitled) lineage by alluding to his dairyrich regal childhood. Phillips’ appearing in an advertisement with a glass of Chinese milk in hand — and his cousin’s cousin Lady Kitty Spencer doing the same for another Chinese dairy brand — may seem incongruous, but with that country slated to become the world’s largest consumer of milk soon, it would be royally foolish not to attempt to skim off some of the cream. At least they both have been quick to see this trend before their financial independence-seeking, Canada-resident common cousin.

Besides, endorsing milk drinking has been a hot favourite of celebrities ranging from Elton John to Taylor Swift for years. And, for centuries, the British Royal Family has been in effect endorsing — although not for pecuniary benefit — a whole range of products via its system of Royal Warrants, whose holders can show off their regal ratification to attract customers. With times and fortunes a-changing, royals obviously cannot wait till the cows come home and need to moo-ve fast wherever greener pastures beckon.
