UK bakery giants Greggs have reported pre tax profits of £4.5 million for the year ending March 31st, 2011.

More than half of the High Street shop's profits can be attributed to the success of their newest confection, the Royal Turnover, a delicious combination of folded pie crust and freshly picked English apples made especially to commemorate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

But the popular treat has not been without its controversy as its launch in March of this year provoked a storm of protest from royalists the length and breadth of the nation as they thought that the name Royal Turnover was a sarcastic jibe at the manner of Princess Diana's death.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
