Why are eBay showing me Royal Baby merch?

Royal Baby MugI’ve had no desire to search eBay and see just how many Royal Baby memorabilia items have appeared – I’m sure there are hundreds if not thousands being added daily.

What I wasn’t expecting was for Royal Baby items to start appearing in my eBay Feed, but that’s where I’ve just seen a HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge mug adorned with images of William and Kate holding their first born.

I was a bit shocked to say the least – the eBay Feed is supposed to show me products I’m interested in, but it appears that all is well. It’s not eBay that’s at fault, but the seller who has accidentally mis-classified the Prince of Cambridge as a cat! The mug is in the Collectables > Animals > Cats > Mugs/ Cups category.

If you’re in the market for some Royal Baby memorabilia there’s over 65,000 listings on eBay, including a load of keyword spamming for irrelevant items as well as some non Royal Baby products which are baby products in royal blue.
