A Mother’s Day with royal tea


KING CHARLES is cashing in on the Mothering Sunday rush by selling afternoon tea by post.

But buyers will need a king’s ransom to meet the £135 price tag — with £8 delivery on top.

The Mothering Sunday straw hamper, from Charles’s Highgrove country seat in Gloucester­shire, comprises just three pots of jam, two tins of biscuits, two tins of tea and a couple of mugs painted with images of the King’s retreat.

‘Our fantastic range of luxury hampers and gift sets make gift-giving this Mothering Sunday easy,’ the shop gushes.

‘Our exclusive range of food and drink gift hampers are stocked with our finest teas, champagne and sweet treats and make gift-giving a delight.’
