Middletons offer 'adult' outfits online

London - The parents of Prince William's wife Catherine have launched a range of outfits for "adult occasions" on their party goods website, a British tabloid said on Saturday.

The Party Pieces firm, owned by the Duchess of Cambridge's parents Michael and Carole Middleton, offers a mini-skirted French maid outfit and a female pirate fancy dress costume under a section entitled adult occasions.

The site shows pictures of the pirate outfit with stockings and a slit skirt and also advertises a short spotted "ladybug" dress and Superman outfit.

There is also a blow-up Sumo outfit described as "the funniest fancy dress costume you can find," the Daily Mail reported.

Some sections of the British media have questioned the taste of the royal in-laws, accusing the Middletons of cashing-in on their connections by creating a range of royal wedding-themed memorabilia.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge - referred to as "Kate" by many Britons -, turned 30 this month.
