Royal Blush Wine Tribute To Prince Harry
September 6, 2012, 7:36 am
A West Country wine dealer has made a cheeky attempt to cash in on Prince Harry's now notorious trip to Las Vegas.
Sheldon's Wine Cellars has produced a bottle of rose with a rude drawing of Harry on the label called Royal Blush.
Manager of the Cotswolds-based company Peter Creek was planning to sell the wine under its own company label but spotted a marketing opportunity when Harry was snapped enjoying a game of naked billiards in his hotel suite.
The label on the £7.50 wine features a drawing of the naked Prince clutching a strategically-placed billiards cue.
An unrepentant Mr Creek said the wine was selling well and told his local paper, The Cotswolds Journal:
"Customers seem to love it and it has been flying off the shelves£- our rose sales are up by 200 per cent.
"We haven't done anything like this before but we thought this merited a bit of fun and was too good an opportunity to miss."
"We haven't had any calls from St James's Palace as yet," added Mr Creek.
"But I am sure he would take it in good humour and we may well send him a bottle along to try."
It is not known if Prince Harry himself is aware of the unlikely tribute from the Cotswolds but the wine is unlikely to find its way into Prince Charles's country home at nearby Highgrove
