London - The piano teacher who gave Kate Middleton music lessons has composed 'A Song for Kate (and William)' as a gift for their wedding on April 29.
Daniel Nicholls, who taught Kate from the age of 10 to 13 - and also instructed her two siblings - said Tuesday he had sent the recording to the Middleton family.
'I don't think anyone would say she was going to be a concert pianist, but she was good at it, she always did everything she was told,' said Nicholls of his former pupil.
Meanwhile, the party accessories business run by Middleton's parents, Carole and Michael, added more to its range Tuesday, including glittering paper tiaras and crown-shaped champagne glass decorations in the colours of the Union Jack.
Party Pieces, as the business is known, also launched a scratchcard game featuring crowns in the same pattern. Players scratch away at crowns to reveal the right answers in a knowledge quiz about Britain.
The winner becomes 'Queen (or King) of England', and the runner-up will be 'close to the throne,' according to the game's rules. A spokeswoman for Party Pieces dismissed suggestions Tuesday that the firm was cashing in on the royal wedding.
'We are a party company. We don't have anything to do with the royal wedding,' she told German Press Agency dpa.
