What’s the real reason for the Middletons selling “Party Pieces”?

Michael and Carole Middleton have sold their Party Pieces business to a British entrepreneur, it has been announced. The party supplies business, which was launched in 1987, has been acquired by British entrepreneur James Sinclair following a period of financial uncertainty. Tatler Party Pieces suffered a significant knock to trade during the Covid pandemic, which put a stop to parties and celebrations for months at a time.

The Middletons claim they’re selling to see more of their grandchildren (and who could blame them!) but it looks much more likely they were in financial difficulties.

James Sinclair owns businesses including Teddy Tastic Bear Co Ltd.
