An OnlyFans model says she staged a cruel poster campaign against the Princess of Wales’s parents after claiming she was fired from a company that failed to pay out when the family business went bust.
The outrageous signs were put up around Carole and Michael Middleton’s home village of Bucklebury in Berkshire, following a nightly poster campaign against the couple two weeks ago.
Her company, Party Pieces, went bust in the summer with debts of £2.6 million, leaving creditors and suppliers taking losses.
The model pictured in the latest posters, Molly, 23, claims she lost her job at her company as a result – although she refused to give her name. She bizarrely claimed that the Middletons were responsible for her eventually sharing nude photos on OnlyFans and denied that the billboard campaign was a publicity stunt.
Molly told The sun: “It is important to note that non-payment of your creditors affects not just one person, but all employees of the company.” That is why I say that I was fired for this reason.
The posters showed Molly in a pink bra with a note: “This is what I turned to!” The company I used to work for has now laid me off.

“It’s not part of a promotion, but as you can see from the photo, it would be a great publicity stunt for me.” Don’t you think I deserve something back after being fired? I think I do.’
When asked if the Middletons were being unfairly targeted, she said: “Do you think being treated unfairly doesn’t mean having to pay millions owed or being fired?” I think I was the one who was wronged, and others too.’

The posters were placed around a local Middleton farm and on surrounding trees. Most were quickly removed by villagers supporting the family, but at least one could still be seen yesterday afternoon.
Villagers said the new banners were aimed at stoking local hatred against the Middletons – but they had only garnered support.
Sharon Fry, 49, a mother of four who lives in the village, said: “The Middletons are a very decent family. “This is their home. And they shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of garbage.
“My daughter works on the farm and I know the staff dismantled her when they saw her.” I saw William and Kate here.
“In fact, I saw William and Kate here. I almost ran over William once when he was riding his bike this way. He just smiled at me. His safety was a priority
“The Middletons are very nice people and they run the farm really well. “There’s a place for children to play and it’s looking really good this Halloween.”
Michael and Carole Middleton have lived in the Berkshire village of Bucklebury for several decades
The Princess of Wales’s parents, Carol and Michael, still live in the village. Her younger sister Pippa has also settled there with her hedge fund tycoon husband and their three children.
Kate’s brother James and his French wife have moved into a £1.45million 17th century farmhouse in neighboring Stanford Dingley, where they are expecting their first child.
Another resident, Sue Rixon, who was with her family at Bucklebury Farm, owned by Middleton, said: “We shouldn’t be seeing these posters.”
“They are very rude and don’t respect this area at all.” This is a quiet, idyllic place
“Whoever did this placed them right in front of the farm gate where children could see them.” Since it’s the semester break, there are a lot of children out and about. That is not very good. I hope whoever sees them turns them off.’
Another resident, who had torn down posters himself, also struck.
He said: “I am extremely concerned.” I was on my morning walk through the village with my dog and again we were being targeted with some campaign against the Middleton family.
“This is now the second time in two weeks that attention has been drawn to our doorstep. “We are a sleepy village – this is really disrupting village life and I for one and other residents are becoming increasingly frustrated.
“I’ve torn down over 10 posters and I’m sure there are more! I’m also very disgusted by the promotion of this website.”

Party Pieces was sold by Kate’s mother Carole, 68, and father Michael, 74, shortly before it went bust in June.
Creditors asked the couple to pay the outstanding amounts out of their own pockets.
The company was founded by the Middletons in 1987 and sold decorations and party supplies for children’s events from catalogs.
Its business model was transformed by the Internet revolution of the 1990s, which allowed the website Party Pieces to sell products to customers at home and abroad.
The company’s soaring profits are said to have helped the couple send their three children to the prestigious Marlborough College, where fees are £42,000 a year, and also helped finance their £5 million, seven-bedroom Georgian mansion in Bucklebury care for.
But the pandemic hit the company hard: children’s parties had to be canceled, and the cost of living crisis caused a further slump in business.
In June, Party Pieces went under after 36 years in business, just two weeks after it was revealed that the company had been sold to a Scottish businessman named James Sinclair after falling into administration.
A friend said at the time that former British Airways stewardess Carole was “deeply saddened” by the fate of the company.
Other friends said she was trying to make sure creditors were paid.
However, suppliers have since criticized the couple, claiming invoices were not paid before the company went bust.

A bankruptcy trustee’s report said it was unlikely that creditors would be paid back the money owed to them.
To attract maximum attention, posters have been placed near shops, churches, the entrance to a cricket ground in the village and just outside Yattendon village hall, where every Wednesday evening locals queue for freshly prepared fish and chips from the mobile Go Get Fish Van.
Outraged residents – most of whom are protective of their neighbors – have not seen the person responsible and have certainly done their best to tear down the offensive posters as quickly as possible.
They were joined by none other than a furious James Middleton himself, who, MailOnline has learned, stormed into the Yattendon Village shops and post office earlier this month after someone was seen sticking to the sycamore tree outside.
“He wasn’t happy and wanted to know if we’d seen any more.” “He wanted them torn down,” says 57-year-old Teri Muggeridge, assistant manager of the store, six miles from Bucklebury and three miles from James ‘ House located in Stanford Dingley.
MailOnline has contacted Party Pieces for comment.
