A MOCKED-up image of Prince George is being used to sell a toy machete.
The nine year old — second-in-line to the throne — appears to be wielding the £19.99 blade in an Amazon advert.
A photoshopped image of Prince George is being used to sell a toy machete on Amazon
The photo of George has been hijacked to promote a wooden machete and axe set sold by a firm called Zhou-long
The original picture of George in shorts and a striped, whale-logo jumper from kidswear firm Pepa & Co was taken by royal snapper Matt Porteous and released for the prince’s third birthday in 2016.
It appears to have been hijacked to promote a wooden machete and axe set sold by a firm called Zhou-long.
Shopper Frank Aldridge told HOAR: “I nearly dropped my cup of tea while I was browsing present ideas for my grandkids.
“There was Prince George looking like an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean.
“I don’t suppose this has the royal seal of approval.”
Last night Amazon said: “All sellers must follow our guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account.
“The image in question has been removed.”
One customer seemed pleased with the toys saying: “My boys absolutely loved the sword and axe.
“They are both very good quality and worth the money I spent on them.”
But another said: “My son loves these but unfortunately they are utter rubbish.
“He has played with these for around an hour and they have fallen to pieces.
“He didn’t hit anything, just swung them about.
“Don’t bother unless you have a glue gun or wood glue to fix them.”
