The world is running out of Rich Tea biscuits as brides-to-be rush to buy them in bulk in order to duplicate the 2nd wedding cake Prince William has ordered.
His favourite bickies are, apparently Rich Tea bickies. He probably sucked on them when he was a baby, and perhpaps still does.
Prince William has ordered a Rich Tea and Chocolate cake to be especially made as an alternative to the 'official' Royal Wedding cake for the Royal Guests.
McVities ran out of Rich Tea biscuits within 5 hours of the announcement of the 2nd cake and ovens are working overtime to keep some on the shelves for ordinary customers.
Working class brides-to-be are making do with the no-name brands or Morrisons' own, in order to keep costs down, but even then, the demand on bakeries is resulting in extra shifts for bakers. It is hoped this will not result in an increase in price for the no-name and Morrisons' brands.
Although the original recipe is supposed to be a 'secret' recipe sent to McVities from the Palace itself, a cook at the palace has leaked out the recipe and is selling copies online under the alias, Mrs. Bakewell Tart.
Palace spokesman, Irma Noitall, said the Palace is taking this behaviour seriously and should the cook be identified, she will 'getting the Royal Boot'.
