Kate Middleton's mother sparks outrage for selling 'zombie princess' costume

Kate Middleton's mother was reportedly selling a Halloween costume that did not sit well with a friend of Princess Diana.

According to the Daily Mail, Caroline Middleton's Party Pieces website was selling a "Zombie Sleeping Princess" costume, which consisted of a bloodied, town princess dress, bloodied socks and a tiara and cost 11 pounds.

As the Daily Star reports, the also the description of the costume read, "this not so pretty princess costume features a blood-drenched pink silky dress. This princess will be the scariest princess at any Halloween party."

For some, the costume hit way too close to home over twenty years after Diana died in car accident in Paris.
