Party Pieces, is a reunion with a difference, set in the home of Simon, a
hitherto struggling actor and minor celebrity whose treading of the
boards for the past twenty years has finally paid off with a lead
Hollywood film role. To celebrate he invites seven University friends to
a large country house for one extraordinary weekend reunion. Life has
been kinder to some than others, and what starts with a veneer of
friendly banter and mutual respect soon descends into acrimony and
resentment as old rivalries resurface.

“As a child of parents, who run their own bussines I feel quite offended, when people say it is not a job, when Catherine worked in family company. I have helped mi parents at summer since I was 15 and the only unusually easy thing was to get this job. Everything else was with no ease. So, what is wrong about it?” - Submitted by littlebatincave
“I hate reading all those confessions slamming Kate for working for her parents. I work for my parents because, like the Middletons, they run a family business and want to give their children experience and opportunity rather than to a stranger they don’t trust. Many families do. No, I don’t intend on working for them forever. I’ll eventually move on, just as my brother before me did and, I’m sure, my brother after me will. You don’t know what Kate’s intentions were after her twenties.” - Submitted by Anonymous
Party Pieces, the company started by the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents, Carole and Michael, in their garden shed in 1987, has been asked to change parts of its website by Olympic officials concerned about its promotion of goods associated with the Games.
The couple built up a lucrative business through producing fun bags and themed items for celebrations, such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and their daughter’s wedding.
But their Olympic themed party goods advertised under the heading “Celebrate the Games” have been investigated by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games.
Locog is keen to protect the integrity of official sponsorship deals with 55 companies worth £700 million.
The committee has apparently asked Party Pieces to change a page bearing a picture of the Olympic torch covered by a Union flag, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Another image to attract the attention of Locog was one of a woman throwing a javelin under the strapline: “Let the Games Begin”.
Locog said in cases where firms breached rules enforcement officials would send them a warning letter or phone them. Only the most blatant breaches would result in further action.
“We will ring and explain the obligations and most times this dialogue is friendly.
"People are usually doing it to be part of the fun, but companies are not allowed to promote an association with the Games if they are not a sponsor.”
