Royal baby blunder over princess plates

A Dorset company has been left out of pocket after it ordered commemorative plates marking the birth of a Royal Princess.

After the birth of Prince George of Cambridge the company is ruing the fact it now has 5,000 pink plates commemorating the arrival of a “Royal Princess”.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the company, which has not been named, received an “inside tip” from a supposedly reputable source who insisted the baby was a girl.
